Impressive beautiful church located on the main square in the old town of Ronda. Unfortunately, I could not get inside.

Commanding bell tower
Aug 2020 • Couples
As with many Spanish churches they all have great entry doors and bell towers. This is quite striking in both regards.

A peaceful place to visit
Jan 2020
Around 10 minutes walk from the "New (18th Century) Bridge" you can find the Iglesia de Santa Maria la Mayor. It is situated on a quiet and shaded plaza which would be a welcome place to be on a hot summers day. With limited time on our hands we just explored the streets around the church which are quite beautiful.

A Spanish National Monument since 1931!
Mar 2019
This is a beautiful church - "Iglesia de Santa María la Mayor" - built right after the "Reconquista", by order of the Catholic Kings in 1486. It was built over the remains of the 13th century old Mosque in the Moorish Medina of Ronda - the actual "Plaza de la Duquesa de Parcent". It is the biggest and most attractive church in Ronda and, probably due to the many renovations and reconstructions implemented along the centuries, it has characteristics of different architectural styles, as Gothic, Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque. Legends never proved state that, at this very site, there was firstly a Roman temple, then a Visigothic basilica, a mosque, a Church (which was completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1580) and finally the one you are just about to visit. Entry fees at E$4,50 with audioguides. Enjoy!

Another Beautiful Church.
Jan 2020
This is another beautiful church set in a lovely plaza and the cobbled streets of the old city of Ronda. Wish we had the time to visit the top for more amazing views.

Go to the top for view!
Nov 2019
This was a short visit, I confess to see the panorama of the city in all directions, and it was worth the short climb. You look down on some terraces (not much privacy for the residents) and it was blessedly free of tourists so you could sit and enjoy the sunshine.

The church is beautiful, as they all are.

Modest Facade with Opulent Interior
Nov 2019 • Couples
This lovely church is in the Old Town’s main square, just a 10 minute walk from the bridge. It was built over an old mosque and has an interesting history. It looks modest from the outside but has a very opulent interior. There’s a small exhibition room with fiesta costumes. Climb the 76 step spiral staircase for views over the town. Don’t miss the little door (it’s only 4 feet high) that’ll take you to a small internal balcony at the top of the church: it’s dizzyingly high!

Enjoyed visiting the church-climb to the top for views
Oct 2019
This church is worth a visit, especially walking to the top for lovely views of the town and countryside. Make sure to open and take the little wooden door to the top.

Beautiful
Oct 2019 • Couples
The inside of this church is very besutiful. There are several stunning madonnas, woodcarvings and very special murals, made by a female artist in the 1980’s. Especially the Last Supper is something to look for.

Beautiful Church
Sep 2019
Just a few euros to visit, and we’ll worth it. We missed out on this church on our last trip, so glad that we made the effort to see inside and take photos from the new viewing platforms.
