Location and orientation
About 67 kilometres west of the provincial capital Málaga and 35 kilometres north of the coast Costa del Sol lies the small town Ronda. Between the Sierra de las Nieves and Sierra de Grazalema National Parks, the municipality covers 481 square kilometres. This makes Ronda one of the largest towns in the region, built by the Moors between the 8th and 15th centuries. The white facades of the houses, which radiate at 723 metres above sea level, are outstanding.

The Puente Nuevo, translated New Bridge, is a landmark of Ronda. It connects the old town (Ciudad Vieja) with the new town (El Mercadillo) and forms a path over the deep gorge of the town. Of the three bridges in total, it is an architectural masterpiece that has shaped the townscape since the year before.2. Matadors in impressive scenery
Since 1783, the bullring (Plaza de Toros de Ronda) has been enthroned in the new town in Spanish baroque style. Bullfights were already held on this site before construction began. Today there is room for 6,000 spectators in the stands. Visitors can visit the arena daily free of charge or for an entrance fee during the days of battle.3. On the trail of Islamic rulers
One of the main attractions of Ronda is the Mondragon Palace. Already in the early 14th century he was the residence of the Moorish king Abomelic I. Marble columns, Renaissance elements, elaborately designed gardens and an inner courtyard adorn the building. The museum of the city's history is also located on the middle floor.
