Escorted Rail Tours to Ronda

The home of bullfighting

As one of the oldest cities in Spain, Ronda is known for its unique beauty and refreshing mountain air. Famous as the birthplace of modern bull-fighting, Ronda is said to be Andalucia's fastest-growing town, yet it retains its historic charm, with an old quarter containing a maze of narrow streets and Moorish buildings.

The city itself is perched on both sides of the spectacular El Tajo gorge, which divides the city into two halves and sees centuries-old houses clinging to the cliff tops. The beautiful Plaza de Toros, the bullring in which the rules of bull-fighting were codified more than 300 years ago, and its attached museum offer a fascinating insight into one of Spain's bloodiest traditions.

More about Ronda

Exploring Ronda
The Mondragón Palace is a heavily renovated and part-modernised former palace of the Moorish ruler Abomelic, son of the king of Morocco. The palace is tiny, but much of its original detail remains in the Mudejar ceilings, some original tiling and the balconied inner courtyards.

The Puente Nuevo is one of the most recognisable of Ronda's monuments, which spans the El Tajo gorge. The 'new bridge' is over 200 years old and is best viewed from the Arco del Cristo, a deteriorating city gate that dates from the 13th century. At the south end of the Plaza Maria Auxiliadora, close to Mondragón Palace, there is a pathway leading down to the Arco del Cristo.

Ronda's other two grand bridges, the Puente Viejo ('Old Bridge'), dating from 1616, and the Moorish Puente de San Miguel, are also well worth a visit.
