“Ronda....A MUST SEE!”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

My experience with the town of Ronda Spain was amazing and wonderful. We visited this town while staying on the Med. coast in Marbella. The drive up to Ronda is panoramic as well as the town. Situated in the mountains the town sits on the edge of a cliff. With Moorish and Andalusian influences the town is clean, people very nice, and plenty to do there.....There are even Roman baths that sit along the river that you can visit although a little of a walk down the cliff.....There is old town and the new town which both are must sees..... It is one of those visits on a week long trip that made the whole vacation worth it........

“Great day trip!”
Reviewed August 22, 2010

Beautiful scenery! Great for a day trip or an overnight stay.

We went for the afternoon and had some food and wine at Paradores. Great place to relax and look at the view.

If you have a car, be prepared to look for parking as the parking lots close to the Centro will be full.

If you are on a budget, have a picnic in the park with a bottle of wine. You can still get a good view of the scenary from the park and you can sit in the shade!

“Ronda Spain - Awesome place but HOT in July”
Reviewed August 8, 2010

We loved Ronda. We were trying to decide between a few locations, I was concerned about the drive but the road was NO PROBLEM on the A397 coming from Fuengirola are towards Mirabella. EASY. If you have ever driven in the San Bernardino Mts. in CA, this drive is easier.

It was in July and it was HOT HOT HOT but there was a lot of shady streets and park areas. The views were awesome, the charm of the town was beyond compare, by far the town with the most charm in all our visits. Just wandering around town, taking in the views, seeing the sites was incredible. We easily found parking (although I had a map of parking lots) and then easily found the visitor info center by the plaza where the bull ring is.

We wandered around on our own through the old village, the parks, Puente Nuevo, Puente Viejo, We took a carraige ride as well. Visited the little museum on the main strip. We ate lunch at the restaurant that overlooks the gorge (slow service). We were very overheated but we loved it.

We are 40 somethings with our 6 year old and she loved wandering around, we took a ton of pictures. If you want to experience the charm of Spain Ronda is the place to do it.

“Oldest Bull ring in Ronda”
Reviewed June 28, 2010

Ronda city is located 2000 meters above sea level and the drive is most amazing. You see rocky mountains, dense forests and its a constand changing topography. Park at the central Plaza and walk to the Ronda Bull ring ...its a 10 minute walk.
The Bull Ringis amazing and the side boards actually have the marks where the bulls may have tried to gorge the Matador !!
Ronda town is small and with cobbled streets and small narrow lanes. Has a unique quality around it which draws you to stay more...enroute to Ronda is the leather factory which is worth a visit

“Don't forget you camera!”
Reviewed March 20, 2010

We drove from Calahonda via Marbella to this fabulous town in the mountains. The roads were quite slow with lots of twists and turns, but as the sun was shining for us, it was pleasant enough. Easily parked just outside the walled gateway and walked up and through the town, taking in the awsome sites! Fascinating history to this town which I suggest visitors will avail themselves of, but an excellent tourist information office helps as well! Don't forget your camera as there are so many great opportunities to snap away at the many interesting features of this town, but mainly the breathtaking gorge that divides the town and the views from the bridges above and below. The plaza del torres [bullring] is also worth a visit an there lots to see.
Plenty of nice shops and good eating places but don't forget siesta times when the shops close! A great place to spend a whole day.
