There are many churches in Spain that you gasp as you enter at the opulent interiors and this was no exception. The additional attraction to this Church is that you are able to do a rooftop walk where you can look down into the church...More

This is a fascinating church with balconies on the front so that dignitaries could watch events happening in the square in front of it. Climb to the top of the towers to get the most amazing views of Ronda. Well worth the entrance fee.

We visited Ronda in the holly week, and they really take it very seriously. Since it is a very small town the tradition remains intact and this church is the base for all the celebrations. The church is nice as a small town church should...More
