Ronda sits in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda, about 100kms from the city of Málaga and with a population of approximately 40,000 inhabitants.
Surrounded by lush river valleys and sitting above a deep ravine, it is a place that literally takes your breath away!
Ronda is one of the most beautiful and visited cities in Spain (the third most visited city in Andalucía).
The heart of Ronda’s town is the jaw dropping El Tajo gorge. The best views are from the Puente Nuevo (new bridge) - which was completed in 1793 and took forty two years to build. The bridge joins the old Moorish town and the newer, El Mercadillo parts of the city. It is, by far in a way, Ronda’s most famous landmark.
Walk down into the gorge along the Camino de Los Molinos. The views are the best to be had. In Spring the whole valley floor is awash with flowers.
Surrounding this magnificent and ancient old town is a thriving modern town, which has a wealth of stylish gastro tapas bars, modern shopping streets , which all blend into the beautifully preserved plazas and cobbled streets of a bye gone era.
The long awaited completion of the new state of the art Ronda hospital is a welcome addition to the area. Excellent road and rail links to all areas of Andalucía and beyond make Ronda an easy destination for both visitors and residents alike.
