Ronda City, Spain Guide: 10 Tips for a Day in Ronda

This fall was my second time visiting the  beautiful Ronda a city located in the Spanish province of Malaga in Andalucia. As you walk around Ronda you see the beauty of it’s history.

It is the perfect small Spanish town with a population of only 35,000.

all white best view ronda spainRonda’s history is steeped in the tradition of bull fighting and The Spanish Inquisition, and renowned for her beautiful architecture, amazing views from over 2,500 feet above sea level and all of the small shops. Today it is full of selfie stick wielding tourist but don’t let that dampen it’s appeal. Ronda is a beautiful city and unlike some places where there is only one lookout point, in Ronda you can’t escape the vast gorges and cliffs that provide the beauty of this city.

10 Tips for a Day in Ronda City Spainleather good shop ronda spainVisit the Small Shops

You know I love supporting small shops and when I travel it is no different. There are small shops decorating the streets. The shops are full of beautiful leather goods and fabrics. You could spend an entire day going from shop to shop exploring the Spanish goods, clothes, wine, sweets and wine! However, if you walk down Carrera de Espinel you will see shops like Mango, Stradivarius and Zara.
10 Tips for a Day in RondaEat Local

This #2 tip is my #1 rule when traveling anywhere. I love eating at local restaurants but beware there are a lot of Tourist Traps (only tourist eat at these restaurants because of their great view but the food is horrible.). I went to the Don Julio restaurant and tried the Andalucian Ox Tail Stew. It was disgusting! If you decide to go to there for the view just order a coffee. Instead, head to the side streets and enjoy some tapas.

Visit the Bullring

The Plaza de Toros (bullring) in Ronda is the home of the Rondeño style of bullfighting and also of the Real Maestranza De Caballería De Ronda. The bullring was built entirely of stone in the 18th century, during the golden years of Pedro Romero’s reign as champion bullfighter.

Walk the Streets

The cobblestone streets are very beautiful with buildings that look like artwork. The narrow streets are almost as lovely as the views and the churches are a great place to visit.

The Andalucia region is known for it’s wine so be sure to grab a glass of the famous wine and enjoy it with bread soaking it in olive oil.

Almeda de Tajo is a botanical garden with beautiful views and there are performers on the stage sometimes.

There are many beautiful view points and it is really fun to take in all of the views and make great memories.

Spend the Nights

I have never spent more that the day in Ronda but I have heard great things about spending a couple of days in the very small city. At sunset all of the tourist are clearing the streets and you are surrounded by the views and a calm environment.fashion blogger pose in ronda spaoinTake an Interest

Ronda’s history is really part of it’s beauty, take an interest and read up on the history of Ronda and what has made this city. I also recommend checking out a museum and wearing comfortable shoes because it is a lot of walking involved!

  14. […] As the temperature drops and the snow looses it’s excitement I find myself downloading apps to countdown to my next vacation. In need of some sun and relaxation, leaving the cold for the summer vibes is the best and even though the high season has passed and the weather is not perfect the sunshine and mix of spring vibes are so inviting in the South of Spain. You can read more about my tips for visiting the South of Spain here! […]
