Ronda , Spain in Anduluscia


This is one of my favorite cities in Spain. It is where Orson Welles and Ernest Hemmingway spent their summers. Ronda is a mountaintop city in Spain’s Malaga province that’s set dramatically above a deep gorge. This gorge (El Tajo) separates the city’s circa-15th-century new town from its old town, dating to Moorish rule. Puente Nuevo, a stone bridge spanning the gorge, has a lookout offering views. New town’s Plaza de Toros, a legendary 18th-century bullring, is one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks.

Ronda sits in the heart of the Serraia de Ronda, about 100kms from the city of Malaga and with a population of approximately 35,000 inhabitants.

Surrounded by lush river valleys and sitting above a  deep ravine, it is a place that literally takes your breath away when seeing it.

Anyone who has been lucky enough to visit Ronda   will understand its appeal. It is one of the most beautiful and visited cities in Spain (the third most visited city in Andalucía).

We plan to visit again but not until mid march when our dear friend from Canada comes to visit us . We want to share it with her.

I think this is a city everyone who comes to Spain should put on their Bucket List.
