Not the most beautiful church we've ever seen (we've seen a lot over Europe), not worth paying to go into. But very lovely from the outside and has some decent views.

This is a convent where the nuns bake pastries for sale but you can not see them there is a revolving window to pay. There is the hand of the founding Saint to see.

Our favorite part of our plaza visit was watching the children at play, the groups of local seniors gathered together, and other residents of Ronda enjoying the evening. Best to visit during sunset.
