Museum
“The oldest bull ring in Spain and the place where Pedro Romero "invented" modern bull fighting being the first ever to have stepped down from a horse and fight the bull just standing on his own two feet. Amazing atmosphere and not to miss. There´s a small museum and shop as well attached to the bull ring. Fights take place only once a year during the "Feria de Pedro Romero", around the first week of September. ”

“Arab Public Baths. This thermal building of the arab time is the best conserved of its kind at the Iberian Peninsula. It is located at the old arab quarter of the city, today called San Miguel Quarter, being the formerly outside quarter of the arab medina (city) of Ronda.”

“Amazing town less than 2h away. Ernest Hemingway visited this lovely place and was inspired by the old bridge and caves. Besides the food is awesome - 3 Michelin guide recommendations in a village with 36 000 inhabitants is not bad :)”

“This is our go-to restaurant in town. Always a chaotic scene, but the service is equally always professional and friendly, if a bit pressed for time during rush hours. ”

“The walking street which local people know as "calle de la Bola". That is why many many years ago it snowed in Ronda and people made a big snowball from the top of the hill down towards the bullring.”

Mountain
“Si dispones de tiempo para venir un día al tajo de Ronda, se come francamente bien es un pueblo muy bonito y con vistas y puedes hacer una vía ferrata para iniciados, que supone escalar unos acantilados por unos peldaños anclados en la roca con equipo de escalada (que te proporcionan los guías) las vistas, gente y actividades son espectaculares, muy recomendable a solo 1 hora en coche. Podéis buscar en la web la empresa "Al Andalus Activa" y preguntar por Jesús ;)”
