What to expect

This day trip will depart from your hotel, or apartment in Malaga or Costa del Sol or at your cruise terminal. You will admire scenic views of the Andalusian countryside as we drive. On arrival in Ronda, gaze at the dramatic El Tajo gorge, an iconic natural landmark that slices the town into old and new districts.

Capture photographs of the connecting Puente Nuevo bridge and then set out on an explorative stroll of the town. Wander through the ambient Plaza de España and then visit the sacred structures of the Church of St Mary the Elder and the Church of the Holy Spirit. Hear the town’s rich historical heritage from your guide before walking to Plaza de Toros, the oldest bullring in Spain. Visit the museum to see exhibits that speak eloquently of Spanish bullfighting traditions and see framed photographs of famous fans like Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway.

Cross the impressive Puente Nuevo bridge, Ronda's most famous landmark, which straddles the deep Gorge and connects the Moorish part of Ronda with the modern part of the city. Here you can truly appreciate the rugged gorge and the beautiful country landscape. There are many attractions worth visiting in Ronda. The Arab Baths, built at the end of the 13th century, are the best preserved in Spain. The old wall and gate to the city give a unique glimpse into Ronda´s Islamic past. The Palacio de Mondragon houses the municipal museum and has some spectacular gardens. It was built and residence of the Moorish King Abomelik and used later as a residence for King Ferdinand and Queen Isabelle. The city also has some impressive churches including the Church of the Holy Spirit and the Church of Santa Maria la Mayor. The Jardines de Cuenca (Cuenca Gardens) should not be missed as they are located on ledges over the Tajo and offer spectacular views of the countryside and city.

Spend the rest of your time in Ronda exploring at your leisure (you will have time for lunch) and then we will return to your hotel or ship terminal in Malaga or wherever you are staying on the Costa del Sol.
