Full description

This day trip will depart from your hotel or apartment in Malaga or Marbella. Admire scenic views of the Andalusian countryside on the drive to Ronda. On arrival, see the dramatic El Tajo gorge, an iconic natural landmark that divides the town into old and new districts. Your guide Thomas or Peter will explain the history of Ronda, its gastronomy and customs. You can take photographs of the connecting Puente Nuevo bridge and then set out to explore the town with your guide.

Wander through the atmospheric Plaza de España and visit the sacred buildings of the Church of St Mary the Elder and the Church of the Holy Spirit. Learn about the town’s rich historical heritage from your guide before walking to Plaza de Toros, the oldest bullring in Spain.

Visit the museum to see exhibits that eloquently describe Spanish bullfighting traditions and see framed photographs of famous bullfight fans like Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway. Cross the gorge and enter the Moorish part of the city. Here you can truly appreciate the rugged and beautiful landscape. There are many attractions worth visiting in Ronda.

The Arab Baths, built at the end of the 13th century, are the best preserved in Spain. The old wall and gate to the city give a unique glimpse into Ronda´s Islamic past.

The Palacio de Mondragon houses the municipal museum and has some spectacular gardens. The Jardines de Cuenca (Cuenca Gardens) should not be missed as they are located on ledges over the Tajo and offer spectacular views of the countryside and city. Spend the rest of your time in Ronda exploring at your leisure (you will have time for lunch) and then return to your hotel, and accommodation.
