What to visit in Ronda?: the steep jewel of Andalusia

Ronda: a story of bandits, bulls, flamenco and wild cliffs

With a story riddled with bandits, fighters and rebels, the abrupt profile of the Ronda mountain range is synonymous with resistance and wild nature.

But not only its soul and indomitable presence serves as an attraction for the traveler: here the art of bullfighting was forged and, as they say, the very same Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway had fun here. With this letter of introduction…it would be -almost- a sin to miss the visit to one of the jewels of Andalusia. And so that you don’t fall into the temptation of missing it, today in Oway we tell you everything you need to know in one of -we confess- our favorite places in the world.

Essential things to do in Ronda

One and a half hours by car from Malaga and Seville, Ronda is one of the most beautiful mountain villages in Andalusia. Its rocky profile rises majestically over the valley, offering a magical panoramic view.

Ronda Bullring

Did you know that it is one of the oldest bullrings in Spain? And what is considered the cradle of bullfighting?

Ronda Viewpoint

From the Bullring you can walk with the imposing views of the cliff – not suitable for people with vertigo…

The New Bridge

With breathtaking views is one of Ronda’s greatest attractions.

Mondragón Palace

Arabic and Renaissance architecture come together in one of the most impressive buildings we have ever seen. With its majestic gardens, this palace welcomed none other than the Catholic Monarchs during their holidays.

Museum of the Bandit

An unusual museum that will steal your heart. Along its rooms you will discover the most famous bandits of the region, who stole from the rich, to give to the poor.

Arab Walls

With several gates such as Almocábar -the main gateway to the city-becomes a spectacle for the view of the epic’s defensive methods. It’s a must-have walk.

Arab Baths

With a hydraulic system that has been intact since the 18th century, this is one of our star recommendations for Ronda. And speaking of stars, you will be surprised by its ventilation system in the form of a five-pointed star as in the Alhambra in Granada.

Plaza del Socorro square

In the center of the village, from this square run the streets -and the life- of the village. Just let yourself be carried away to get to know a village that you can easily cross in a day.

Immerse yourself in the wild soul of Ronda

How long does it take to visit Ronda? In one day, you can see the essentials, although if you have the opportunity, we recommend you stay a weekend to enjoy all its main attractions.

As you will see, this indomitable village brings together the essence of the deepest and most unknown Andalusia.

 

Between cliffs, echoes of the birth of the bulls, vigilante bandits and flamenco ‘quejíos’ (lament) you will spend your hours in Ronda.
