Alameda del Tajo
Park in Ronda
The Alameda del Tajo, formerly known as Alameda de San Carlos, is a tree-lined promenade and botanical garden that dates back to the early 19th century and is located in Ronda, Spain. The word alameda refers specifically to a grove of poplar trees, but it has become attached to any tree-lined avenue or boulevard.
It is located next to the Plaza de Toros and on the edge of the Tajo ledge. It is formed by five landscaped avenues, which represent a selection of mature trees typical in ornamental gardening in the Málaga province. The park also includes fountains, duck pond, and bird enclosure and a childrens playground. The avenues lead to a promenade with balconies from where you can see the Hoya del Tajo and the Serranía de Ronda.
By the Virgen de la Paz entrnace you’ll see a statue of the founder of Ronda bullfighting Pedro Romero.
The evening “paseo” is still a strong tradition in Spain with whole families taking to the streets for a long, leisurely stroll, where they can meet up and chat to with friends. The alameda is the inevitable hub of the paseo.
