On the southern side of the Puente Nuevo is La Ciudad. Its cobbled streets contain a mix of whitewashed houses and grand Renaissance mansions. It was the old Moorish market area and, historically, the most important part of Ronda. There are numerous historical buildings and fine museums here, so let's start with the Convent of Santo Domingo since it is... More

We took a weekend drive to Ronda this week. We drove up the 366 from Coin to Ronda. A beautiful drive through stunning scenery and lovely inland villages which took us just over 80 minutes at a leisurely pace. Ronda proved to be all we had expected and more stunning views and architecture truly lovely. The town itself has a... More

We visited a few cities in Spain. Ronda was my favorite. The scenic vistas are out of this world. We took a bus from Seville to Ronda and is was so worth it. It was only a day trip, but I enjoyed so very much. I would love to go back and stay for a few days. Don't miss this... More

Ronda is such a lovely place hidden in Spain. It is not a big place, but the monuments are worth the trip there, and even the experience of the trip itself. The road from Marbella to Ronda is absolutely breathtaking. If you go there, be sure to eat in one of the restaurants close to the bridge, the food is... More

Visited Ronda 3 or 4 times while living on the Costa del Sol. Each time i hear family or friends say "why don't we visit Ronda" i start to shrivel. The main reasons to go to Ronda are for the Bull ring, the amazing bridge design and little more. This is where people ask " why have you gone 3-4... More

Both the old town and the new are well worth a visit. We have visited Ronda a few time previously but this was the first overnight stay, specifically to see the Parade of the Kings 5th January 2013. Well worth an overnight stay to be able to stroll around and choose from the excellent traditional Spanish tapas bars and restaurants... More

The city is beautiful, it has a great blend of old and new. The old section is by far the prettiest, There are lots of tourist attractions to keep you busy for the day, we love the park and the shopping is great too, lots of nice little shops selling local produce/locally made goods.

A nice alternative to the 'big' cities. Ronda can be seen in a few hours but is worth a couple of days. Sure the bridge is the attraction but the town is interesting and lots of nice walks in the area. Some serious tourism visiting during the day but the evenings are quiet. some nice hotels with good dining rooms.... More
