A Day Out in Ronda
22 February 2009 @ 18:54

We went to Ronda one day whilst we were at Casares del Sol. We've not been to Ronda before as seemed a long way to go in hot weather, but on a bright, windy day had a day in the Andalucian hills on the edge of the Costa del Sol self catering holiday area. There are 2 ways to get there from Casares del Sol - both windy and steep climbing roads. Either the via San Pedro or via Casares town - there isn't much difference in the time it takes  either way - just over a hour.

Even in mid February, Ronda was busy with coach tours and multi lingual groups of people. Suggest you head for the bull ring to find the tourist information centre and pick up a map. The bull ring is the oldest purpose built ring in Europe - high in the hills. The head to the new bridge as seen in the photo here - 18th century and spectacular to see the scale of the gorge it spans. Then see the old bridge from the new bridge - tiny in comparison.

Wander the streets of old Ronda with the cafes and numerous museums. And if you are feeling fit, walk down to the base of the new bridge to get a photo like the one here - its a steep climb down ( and it seems even steeper back up) but well worth the effort.

Alternatively if you want to go to Ronda by the single track train.
