RONDA – A MUST VISIT
The classic day trip from the Costa del Sol is a tour to the beautiful and historic city of Ronda. Perched on a buttress of rock and surrounded by the high peaks of the nearby Sierras, the town is divided in two by the El Tajo gorge, and it’s two halves connected by the famous “Puente Nuevo”.
Ronda is a city of stunning views, due to its mix of natural beauty, being surrounded by the rugged limestone peaks of surrounding natural parks, its beguiling labyrinth of streets, impressive palaces, mansions and churches and convents as well as thousands of years of history and culture.
Our experienced and friendly guide will show you the best views, the most interesting corners, the most beautiful gardens and buildings enabling you to truly experience the best of this stunning city.
A short stop at the nearby town of Setenil de Las Bodegas, “the town under a rock” offers us the chance to see a unique Andalucían pueblo and enjoy some of the best tapas the area has to offer!
This Ronda day trip is a fantastic day in the heart of Andalucía and an unforgettable experience. Our Ronda tour as with all our day trips and excursions are private tours, meaning you get a unique and intimate experience and can enjoy the day at your pace.
“… the incomparable phenomenon of this city, set over the mass of two stones cut with a pick and separated by the narrow and deep gorge of the river, it could correspond to that other city, revealed in the dreams. The spectacle of this city is indescribable, and, around it, an ample valley with working fields, oaks and olive trees. And there in the distance, as if it had recovered all its strength, the pure mountain rises, range after range, until it forms the most splendid background.” “…for this was the wonderful success of Ronda, in which summarizes everything that I desired, a Spanish sentinel city in a fantastic and magnificent way…” – Rainer Maria Rilke.
RONDA – PRIVATE GUIDED TOUR – ITINERARY
Our tour starts at 10:00am where your private guide and vehicle will be waiting for you outside your accommodation or chosen location. Our tour in a way begins on the journey itself, the main road from the coast to Ronda, which winds its way up the mountains, offering fantastic views of the Costa del Sol, Gibraltar and Africa.
We arrive at Setenil de Las Bodegas around 90 mins after departure from the coast. A short walk around this unique and beautiful small “pueblo blanco” is a unique experience. With houses, shops and bars build directly into the cliff faces. Its winding, terraced streets tumble down the hillside, and follow the path of the river below and are best appreciated from the Moorish castle at the top of the hill.
A short 20 minute drive through rolling countryside, with mountains framing the distance and wildflowers filling the valley, sees us arrive in Ronda. Arriving after the large tourist groups have departed, your guide will walk you around all the main sights of Ronda; El Tajo Gorge, El Puente Nuevo, the Puente Viejo & Puente Arabe, the Palacio de Mondragon, Iglesia de Espiritu Santo and the Old City Walls as well as many other hidden palaces, gardens, charming corners and outstanding views.
During the tour, we stop for lunch at an established local tapas bar just outside the ancient city walls where you can enjoy some authentic local dishes at local prices in a pleasant plaza.
After a day in the heart of Andalucía, at the Andalucían pace of life, we return along the same road and drop you back at your pick up point, with wonderful memories of a unique day trip.
