Main information

A walking tour of Ronda in Malaga is a pleasant and enjoyable way to spend a lazy few hours, almost everything you could want to see in Ronda is no more than 200-300 metres from the new bridge. Visitors make a beeline for the 18th century Puente Nuevo ‘new’ bridge, which straddles the 100m chasm below, before taking in the views from the Alameda out over the Serrania de Ronda mountains.

Ronda is the biggest city in northern Malaga province, and the closest city to many of the smaller villages in Cadiz province, making Ronda an ideal base for exploring the Serrania. Within a few kilometres of Ronda are some of the most visited Pueblos Blancos, the famous white villages of Andalucia.

Ronda in Malaga Province is also famous as the birthplace of modern bullfighting, today glimpsed once a year at the spectacular Feria Goyesca. Held at the beginning of September, here fighters and some of the audience dress in the manner of Goya’s sketches of life in the region. Legendary Rondeno bullfighter Pedro Romero broke away from the prevailing Jerez ‘school’ of horseback bullfighting in the 18th century to found a style of bullfighting in which matadores stood their ground against the bull on foot. The bullring, Plaza de Toros, is now a museum, and visitors can stroll out into the arena.

The town’s pedestrianised ‘high street’, calle Espinel, opposite the bullring, is nicknamed ‘La Bola’. It is where Rondenos go for virtually everything and is interesting to those visitors who like old fashioned shops.
