Spain has some of the most impressive towns and cities to explore in the whole of Europe. The likes of Barcelona, Madrid and San Sebastian are exceptional places to enjoy a weekend getaway but one place that is often overlooked by some visitors to Spain is the historic and breathtaking city of Ronda in the province of Malaga and about a 1-hour drive from Malaga airport.

Why should you visit?
It’s easy to see why so many people visit Ronda time and time again, with the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles being two of the city’s most famous summer residents! Famed for its position high in the mountains, Ronda is split, dramatically, in two by the Guadalevín River and canyon. The city of Ronda offers some of the most spectacular vistas across the province, while having some fantastic places to eat, sleep and enjoy a long weekend in the city.

What should you see in the city?

The city itself is relatively small in size, with approximately 35,000 residents and a compact historic centre that can be explored easily – perfect for that weekend break away!

While visiting Ronda, don’t forget to check out these wonderful sights and experiences:

1. Walk across the Puente Nuevo Bridge

No visit to Ronda would be complete without a walk across the impressive Puente Nuevo Bridge that stands over 120 metres high!
