The Andalucia region
The countryside around Ronda is surprisingly green - so if you enjoy walking then the area around Ronda is great.
There are many, "must see" day trips from Ronda:
Granada: Here you can find one of the wonders of Moorish Spain - the fortified palace of the Kings, the Alhambra. Which offers a breathtaking insight into Moorish civilization.
Seville: The bustling capital of Andalusia, offers the largest gothic cathedral in the world - surrounded by the intimate cloisters is the Alcazar Palace.
Cordoba: Situated on the banks of the Guadalquivir river, here you can embrace the remnants of three distinct empires - the Roman bridge, an arch built for Philip II and the La Mezquita.
Cadiz: This ancient sea port claims to be the oldest city in western Europe.
Jerez: The main sherry region is close by - here you can visit a vineyard or one of the famous riding schools.
There are also many, "white villages" in the Serrano De Ronda, which offer an alternative to the hustle and bustle of the cities. Beach resorts are about 45 minutes (Marbella) away by car.
The place that Earnest Hemingway called, 'the most beautiful town in the world', is Rich with history.
Ronda's origin lay in prehistoric times. In its earliest history Ronda was inhabited by the Celts. At about the time of Christ the Romans were the rulers. On the outskirts of the town is the Roman stronghold of Acinipo with its ancient amphitheatre. After the Romans the Arabs brought prosperity, and named it, 'Madinat Runda'. There are many examples of the Arabic legacy throughout the town.
The bullring is the oldest in Spain and the largest in the World. The famous bullfighter, Francisco Romero, revised the corrida to fight the bull on foot with sword and cape instead of on horseback. His grandson, Pedro Romero, is Spain's most famous and revered matador, killing 5,600 bulls in his lifetime.
The other famous landmark is the New Bridge that crosses, El Tajo. Built during the Catholic period it connects the old city with the new.
