The Andalucia region
Rural Andalucia is an aera of outstanding natural beauty. The Serrania de Ronda and the Sierra de Nieves mountain ranges offer wonderful settings for outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, birdwatching and adventure sports.
The historic towns of Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada and Jerez are all close by. As is the coast with its numerous beaches and resorts. The Coto Donana National park with its wonderful wildlife is also close by.
There are also many golf courses in the area.
Ronda is a spectacularly beautiful town set straddling a deep gorge (the Tajo) with impressive views of the countryside.
Three bridges, Puente Romano ("Roman Bridge", also known as the Puente San Miguel), Puente Viejo ("Old Bridge", also known as the Puente Arabe or "Arab Bridge") and Puente Nuevo ("New Bridge"), span the canyon. The term "nuevo" is a bit of a misnomer, as the building of this bridge commenced in 1751 and took until 1793 to complete. The Puente Nuevo is the tallest of the bridges, towering 120 metres (390 ft) above the canyon floor, and all three serve as some of the city's most impressive features.
The Plaza de Toros de Ronda, the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain built in 1784.
The partially intact Baños árabes ("Arab baths") are found below the city and date back to the 13th and 14th centuries.
American artists Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles spent many summers in Ronda as part-time residents of Ronda's old town quarter called La Ciudad. Both wrote about Ronda's beauty and famous bull-fighting traditions.
Hemingway's novel For Whom the Bell Tolls describes the murder of Nationalist sympathizers early in the Spanish Civil War. The Republicans murder the Nationalists by throwing them from cliffs in an Andalusian village, and Hemingway allegedly based the account on killings that took place in Ronda at the cliffs of El Tajo. Ernest Hemingway wrote many of his novels here as well, such as Fiesta.
The town offers a wide range of restaurants and bars. Many are very inexpensive, but quality formal restaurants are also available.
The week of Semana Santa (Easter) sees a succession of impressive processions. Feria in early September is full of flamenco, processions and street parties.
