Ronda & the White Villages

Ronda, standing on a towering plateau in the mountains of Malaga, is one of Andalusia’s loveliest towns and famous through Spain for its plunging river gorge called ‘El Tajo’. It is one of the oldest cities of Spain. Very impressive are the Paleolithic cave paintings in Pileta’s cave, the ‘Puente Nuevo’ or New Bridge and the bullring, the oldest and most beautiful bullring in Spain with the largest arena in the entire country.

Driving back from Ronda you can opt for a tour of the White Villages of Andalusia with its most picturesque views, their beautiful architecture of whitewashed houses hugging the contours of the land and their Medieval castles and churches. The villages are located within the Sierra de Grazalema Nature Park with sites of natural interest like the “Garganta Verde” canyon and numerous caves of great archaeological value. The continuation of this route will allow you to enjoy the varied flora and fauna and more specifically the rich bird life that can be found all along the sierra.
