Ronda: The dream city worth visiting
Ronda is one of the most beautiful and well-visited cities in Spain. This magnificent Andalusian inland tourism destination is located in a majestic natural area, surrounded by lush river valleys and seated on a deep ravine.
It’s not only the incredible location that catches the traveller from the first moment. The Malaga town of Ronda has an exceptional historical and cultural heritage and is known as “the dream city”. Walking through its streets is like entering a melting pot of Roman, Visigoth and Muslim cultures, which have left an indelible legacy in every corner of the city.
Its most iconic monument is the Puente Nuevo, the largest of all the bridges in Ronda, built in the eighteenth century, 98 metres high with a central semi-circular arch supported by a smaller one through which the Guadalevín River runs. The bridge crosses the impressive Tagus Gorge, offering breath-taking panoramic views of the city and the nearby imposing Serranía de Ronda.
Other must-see places where you can admire the Muslim artefacts of the city include the Arab baths in Ronda, which were built at the end of the 13th century and are the best preserved in the country. Also, it is essential to walk through the impenetrable medieval walls with its many Islamic doors and arches, which are reminiscent of the city's defensive past. You will also be amazed at the number of churches, gardens, convents and mansions in the city. They are simply wonderful!
If you are a bullfighter, visiting the bullring of Ronda has to be a priority, and even if you are not too! It dates from 1785 and is considered the oldest in Spain and is also said to be the prettiest. It has paraded the most famous bullfighters in the country and has attracted illustrious thinkers and writers such as Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles, who were also caught by the many charms of Ronda.
