About Ronda

Ronda is one of Andalucia`s loveliest towns, steeped in history.

It stands on a towering plateau in the mountains of Malaga Province, and is famous through Spain for the plunging river gorge which divides the medieval from the 18th century parts of the town. This gorge is known as El Tajo – The Cliff and is spanned by a stone bridge, which once housed a prison. Visitors love to peer down into the gorge, to see the waters of the River Guadalevin.

Imagine birds flying beneath your feet, imagine the sound of water flowing over ancient rock, imagine a history of love and happiness in Ronda.

A place where one can feel, a corner in which one can rest, and take a journey into age-old Spain.

Ronda is also famous for its bullring, the oldest, and the most beautiful one in Spain; the arena itself is also the country's largest.

Think of beautiful local cuisine, tapas, walking between the narrow streets
, sitting perched on top of the gorge.
