HISTORY & THINGS TO DO
Ronda itself has been inhabited since prehistoric times, with both the Romans and Moors leaving marks of their occupancy. Ronda was an important Moorish stronghold during the Arab occupation of Spain playing a crucial role in the Christian reconquest of Andalusia in the 15th century.
Visitors are drawn to the popular attractions of Puente Nuevo, a stunning bridge that spans the El Tajo Gorge. The bridge was built in the 18th century and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. We guarantee there is nowhere else that compares with it especially for those keen amateur photographers in the family.
We love the Arab baths which date back to the 13th century and are one of the best-preserved examples of Moorish architecture in Spain. Visitors can take a guided tour of the baths and learn about their history and significance. You can’t take advantage of a relaxing spa day but you can imagine how indulgent they must have been back in the day.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, there are plenty of hiking and mountain bike trails and scenic walks in and around Ronda. You can choose which trail to follow depending on your needs. The nearby Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park offers stunning views of the countryside and is a popular destination for hikers and nature lovers.
RONDA FOOD AND DRINKS
Ronda is known for its delicious food and drink. The town is especially famous for its wines, as it´s surrounded by family owned vineyards which produce world renowned red wines made from the local Tempranillo grape. Visitors can sample the local wines at one of the many bodegas (wineries) in and around the town, wash down some of tasty cheese of nibbles with some of the various varieties of wine . Just be careful how much you sample if you´re driving back home!
The local cuisine is also a highlight of any visit to Ronda. The town is famous for its tapas, small dishes of food that are perfect for sharing. Some of the most popular tapas in Ronda include chorizo al vino (spicy sausage cooked in red wine), boquerones (marinated anchovies), and tortilla de camarones (shrimp fritters). An absolute tasty delight are the local lamb dishes, cooked slowly over an open fire so the taste is sensational and just melts in your mouth.
Ronda is also known for its lively festivals and celebrations.
A popular festival is the Ronda Romantica, a celebration of the town’s history and culture that takes place every May. The festival includes costumed reenactments, live music, and traditional food and drink, and is a great way to experience the town’s rich history and traditions.
