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.

The church is slightly away from the bridge and the main part of Ronda but is worth a visit. We paid the entry fee €2 and an audio guide was included in the price. It's fairly big inside the church (bigger than it looks on...More

Beautiful baroque church. Interior reminds of churches of old Quito, or vv. The best part though is the rooftop. Views of the city in all directions, simply stunning. Well worth the visit

Almost everything dates from after 1930, when there was a fire. The woodwork has been beautifully restored. The audio-phone explanations were fine, on the whole, but the praise for the wall paintings coming into my ear were contradicted by what was reaching my brain from...More

This is THE church you should visit in Ronda. Don’t be discouraged by the fairly plain exterior. The interior of the church is beautifully decorated and has a fascinating history - part Gothic, part Baroque. The entrance fee is only €4 and includes a very...More

A Chocolate Box Church. The site of the Iglesia de Santa Maria la Mayor goes back quite some way. Originally, archeological evidence suggests that there was a Roman altar built to commemorate the victory of Julius Caesar over the forces of Sexto, Cneo and Pompeii...More

A beautiful church with stunning views from the terrace, plenty to look at and admire, but that said it’s hard to get past the €4.50 admission

The size of this church is enormous. It is difficult to see hos a relatively small population required such a large building. The church is divided into two parts the second even bigger and higher than the first. It is worth walking the 75 steps...More
