Ronda  City Guide

Ronda is a charming town located 105 km west of the city of Málaga. It forms one of the towns and villages that is included in the Sierra de las Nieves National Park.

Its famous 18th century Puente Nuevo, bullring and its panoramic views attracts visitors from all over the world, and it is Andalusia’s third most visited town. Visitors have included famous writers such as Ernest Hemingway and Rainer Maria Rilke.

Ronda is located on a plateau, high above sea level, with a deep gorge in the middle of it. The gorge called Tajo is 100-mt deep, 500-mt wide gorge, which flows the Guadalevín river.

 The city’s two parts are connected by three bridges that cross the El Tajo Gorge and the Guadalevín River. These are the Puente Nuevo  or New Bridge which is the most spectacular of the three, the Puente Viejo or Old Bridge despite not being the oldest bridge of Ronda, and the Bridge of San Miguel or known as Roman or Arab Bridge.

While both sides are pretty the southern part that is slightly older and shows some typical features of a Moorish settlement. Ronda is composed by three main areas:
  • Barrio de San Francisco, in the southern area.
  • Ciudad, which is the first Roman and Middle-Age settlement.
  • Barrio del Mercadillo, in the northern area of the city
