The 9 Best Things to Do in Ronda, Spain

April 9, 2018 Janean Rudisill

Ronda’s most striking feature is the Puente Nuevo, which spans a gorge over 300 feet deep. Can you guess when the "new bridge" was built? 1793. That should give visitors an idea of how unchanged Ronda has been over the years. It’s also known as the birthplace of modern bullfighting. The town’s bullfighting ring is only used once a year, at the Feria Goyesca, but it’s also a museum where you can learn about the history of this traditional (yet controversial) sport.

El Tajo de Ronda

Reviewed By Bozeman-Dublin - Dublin, Ireland

We loved our day in Ronda, an absolutely beautiful town. Its best attraction is the beautiful bridge over the gorge which offers stupendous views for miles around. Make sure to descend into the gorge itself by a small path beside the bridge. From the bottom if you walk away from the bridge for a time you are rewarded with equally magnificent views of Ronda itself with the bridge spanning across the gorge.
it really is a magnificent place to spend some time. Lovely town too with lovely eateries and shops.

Puente Nuevo Bridge

Reviewed By Taxwizzard - Staffs

Thoroughly recommend a visit to Ronda. The bridge is a stunning piece of architecture and it is well worth actually crossing it and then taking the pathway which is out on the right and walking down (right down) to the bottom. Once down there you views of the bridge itself are stunning. Leave yourself a good hour or so to go all the way down, as although it's easy going down, the return is steep and hard going. I wouldn't recommend it for those with mobility problems or is pushing a buggy or carrying a baby!
Once back up take a walk around the old town, which is beautiful and very atmospheric.
We spent a good 6 hours there but didn't have time to visit the numerous museums, well you have to linger over lunch and fabulous views, so there is now a return visit planned.
Yes it is touristy but then that's what you are and why you are there.

Only a few minutes away from the city that joined its destiny to the king of the dehesa, at RESERVATURO RONDA, in the edge of a Biosphere Reserve, we can enjoy observing within a short distance all the stages of the fighting bull breeding and selection: the breeding stock cows escorted by the powerful stallion -the chosen one, the herald of the essence of the breed-; the calves born that year, running about together overlooked by their mothers, dreaming of a long life in the country; the young bulls insolents, boastful of their thoroughbred; and finally, the bull, the result of centuries of men's passion for creating the most beautiful creature, midway between its nobility and its fighting spirit.

Our visit to Reservatauro was really enjoyable.
Whether you agree with bull fighting or not, this place shows a different side to the sport with beautiful animals (bulls, cows and horses) living free range with a high quality of life in a fabulous rural setting.
The tour is really excellent and very informative. Our guide Ilhem was fluent in English, French and Spanish and was very interesting.
I highly recommend a visit here. Thank you Ilhem!

Mirador del Puente Nuevo

Reviewed By dskid - Overland Park, Kansas

We were driving from Gibraltar to Seville and took a detour to see Ronda based on the rave reviews from a friend. I don't regret the decision for a moment and this view is one of the reasons for that. While it was great to see, I'm not sure if I would have wanted to go much further out of my way for this. I did note a number of escorted tour groups when we first arrived in town so I'm guessing that this is one of the highlights of an escorted tour to this part of Spain. If you're on one of those tours you'll see most of what one sees when walking around the town unescorted (which is most often not the case).
Thanks for Reading. If you've found this helpful I'll appreciate a thumbs up below.

Dona Felisa Winery

Bodegas Dona Felisa is a company dedicated to the production and aging of exclusive wines of the highest quality. Our quality is based on a well cared and limited production in the vineyards, giving the wine its "Terroir" taste. The winery Taller Bodegas Dona Felisa is located at a place where you can enjoy what nowadays known as "enological tourism", because it is near the old Roman city of Acinipo. Acinipo, land of wine. Through a controlled process which begins with taking care of the vineyard and ends with the produced wine, we offer our clients a high quality product with a conceptual background and an exclusive design. "Chinchilla", where our winery is located, was famous in Ancient Rome because of its vineyards and wines which were sent to Rome from Malaga's coast. At present our wine is distributed worldwide and it is, very likely, the most international Andalusian red wine.

We have been driving around Southern Spain and there are amazing places to go - palaces, Bridges, natural landscapes and ruins - but we were ready for a different kind of activity. We googled around and found Bodega Dona Felisa winery which is only 25 mins drive out of Ronda. We are so pleased we went. You pay for the tour and wine tasting with optional tapas (worth it!).
The scenery on the way is just gorgeous - off the main roads and into the real countryside. We have been to a lot of wineries before but this one is very special - its small with some fantastic wines (Temporillo, chardonay, moscato, cab sav, shiraz). Genma's tour is very educational and interesting with lots to see (& we had lots of questions). She is a lovely warm person too. Then we sat and tried some of her fabulous wines over some of her beautiful home made tapas - perfecto!

Old City

Reviewed By Bozeman-Dublin - Dublin, Ireland

We loved Ronda. The old town is very small and as other reviewers say here, very touristy. But what we loved about it was how well preserved it is, how unchanged it seems and authentic. Some gorgeous little streets to visit with charming eateries and a lovely Cathedral.
The highlight is the Puenta Nueva overlooking the gorge, it is breath-taking the views you get of the gorge and the surrounding countryside.
It was lovely and quiet on our visit - a cold, sunny February day. i'd say it gets very crowded in summer but it is worth the effort I promise you!

The most prominent of the miradoros around Ronda, and the best view out over the surrounding Mountains and Valleys. There is a place where you can step out onto a ledge with a guardrail around...make sure you do so for the very best perspective.

Although we enjoyed the visit, combine the high price and miserable cashier , it does take the edge off. Interesting though to get to explore all the areas, make sure you do explore all areas, such as the riding arena, bull pens etc some are easily missed. Cafe and toilets inside (accessed without paying)
