In the midst of the historic sites, natural wonders, restaurants, cafes and the bullring, this lovely park in Ronda is a great place to slow down and take in free musical performances, artists or just sit and people watch. There are more views of the gorge, but the greenery within the park and there is seating that allows visitors to relax and people watch. There is also a gazebo where musicians perform during the day. I also enjoyed checking out the handiwork of the artisans and artists. My wife and I were able to purchase a painting of the gorge that an artist was just finishing up.

Upon entering or leaving the park, don’t miss the monuments dedicated to Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles. Another location on the globe where these two icons left their mark!

Visiting Ronda, one cannot miss a quick stop at "Alameda del Tajo"! It is a public park, opened in the beginning of the 19th century, with some fo the most beautiful views of the awesome "Serranía de Ronda" (Ronda's mountain range). It is easily reachable from Ronda's "Plaza de Toros" and no entry fee is charged. Get your cameras ready! Enjoy!

Just behind the bullring or a short walk from the bridge past the Parador.
Nice peaceful park, fountains and formal gardens, artists setting up stands.
Lots of cats, if you are a cat lover! Toilets open sometimes.
But the view is superb!
Worth a walk to see if you are in town.

There are four major attractions to this lovely, typically Spanish, park right in the centre of Ronda.

Firstly, the wonderful, shady, greenery. Palms and all sorts of beautiful trees and shrubs with benches to sit and contemplate as you listen to the fountains.

Then there is a small aviary with ducks etc. for the children to coo over, as well as the children's playground at the end.

And then there is the view. Or rather: The View.

The View.

To appreciate The View in all its glory, you need to step out onto one of the little "miradores" - the viewpoints at the very end. Most people, even those with vertigo, feel fairly confident in doing this, as they have waist-height railings.

Until they realise . . .

Until they realise that most of them are just suspended over the void, with nothing underneath them.

:-)

All depend how much faith you have in Spanish civil engineering and builders.

But this is a MUST photo opportunity.

In front of you a magnificent range of mountains; in winter you may even see a little snow sparkling on the top. If you peer down, you will see below the beautiful Vega of Ronda, the fertile plain, with a pretty winding country road. If you read my review of the Puente Nuevo bridge, there are instructions for a lovely walk down there, out in the countryside, seeing an altogether different face of Ronda.

When you have taken your fill of the view (or have been overtaken by vertigo), turn towards the left and start walking. You go in front of an amazingly ugly public auditorium and then take a little alleyway bordered by small trees, each with a plaque below.

Peer down and read them: they say something like this:"We were both born in May 1997". Families bought the tree to commemorate the birth of a child - sweet.

If you continue down the path you will come to the bullring, the Parador, and the Puente Nuevo.

Good views from there too, but nothing like what you get from the miradores in the Alameda del Tajo.

We were staying opposite bullring so we entered park from down the side of it....what a breathtaking view ! You can see for miles ....they also do BASE jumping off the cliffs here which was on in June . Ronda is a beautiful place and someday I hope to return and explore it more as we only stayed for one night .

A beautiful little garden that has (probably) more to it than you first see, statues, benches, magnificent views are all you need to relax for a spell, full of tourists but there’s always somewhere to sit and be on your own

The Alameda del Tajo Park was originally opened in 1806 and is located between the Bullring and the Church of Our Lady of the Merced in Plaza de la Merced. The Alameda del Tajo is a good example of ornamental gardening in Málaga province utilizing mature trees of Himalayan cedar and acacia pine to form avenues, or boulevards, leading to fountains, pergolas of roses and, of course, the Mirador of Ronda. This viewpoint provides what is considered to be one of the most outstanding vistas of the Serrania and surrounding landscapes and provides a home for the recognizable bandstand type structure on it.
The evening walk, or Paseo, is a tradition strongly maintained in Spain and the popular Alameda is clearly the central point for a Paseo in Ronda. After the heat of the day it is a great way keep cool walking in the shade of the trees, or, just sit and enjoy the views. You will see, more often than not, several generations of family participating in a leisurely stroll along the Alameda and other paseos, such as the Blas Infante, linking to it.

Thanks for reading this and if you've found it helpful I'd appreciate a ‘thumbs up’ below.

On entering the Alameda del Tajo park from the Calle Virgen de la Paz, it seemed like just another pleasant small park in a city centre. However as you walk west through the park, you very quickly come to the edge of a sheer drop, luckily protected by railings and stone walls.

The view over the countryside, approximately 200m below, is stunning. We were very lucky in that it was a clear sunny day, which enabled us to take many photographs.

I visited the town of Ronda very many years ago and the lasting image that has stayed with me is not the bullring, the old and the new bridge, or the town square; but the extraordinary view from this vantage point.

From the Alameda del Tajo you can continue along the cliff top path a short distance to the Plaza de Toros bull ring, and then the Puente Nuevo bridge – three key attractions within a short distance.

Gorgeous views from every angle. Ronda is beautiful and after walking around the town we finished with a visit to the park. This is a perfect spot for pictures. The kids in our group had a great time taking photos with this gorgeous backdrop.

Lovely small park with a gazebo. Muscians
/buskers play. Amazing panoramic view with the ‘porch’ making you feel like a bird soaring above the valley!
