The city of Ronda lies in the Spanish province of Malaga with a population of around 35,000 residents. This may sound a lot but to put this into perspective, there are very few towns in Britain with that few people.
Around the city visitors will find the remnants of prehistoric settlements dating as far back as the Neolithic age. A quick google search of this city and it will become clear that it is steeped in history. From the Baños Arabes – The arabic baths built at the end of the 13th century to the bullring built in 1785. If history is of interest to you, the city has a lot to offer.
Ronda is connected by three bridges, the Roman bridge, the old bridge and the new bridge despite the latter being built in 1751. They each offer fantastic and differing views with their own architectural style.
Once you have finished your sightseeing, you can finish your day off with a trip to the nearby Benaoján and take a dip in the Cueva del Gato – the cat’s cave, a river pool with crystal clear water, and beautiful surroundings, a sight most will have only experienced through a TV screen.
Things to look out for:
El Tajo gorge – a fantastic view from the “new” bridge
Plaza de Toros – The Bullring
Baños Arabes – Arab Baths
The city gates
