Just like a trip to Spanish whitewashed villages, a private tour to the Andalusian horse and bull farm can shed light on the traditional Spanish life in rural areas.

Explore Ronda on this day trip!
This day in Ronda promises to be unforgettable. Wherever you are staying — at a hotel, in an apartment, or a cruise ship — our driver picks you up at the most convenient meeting point and takes you to Ronda. On your way to this town, you have a chance to admire amazing Andalusian landscapes.
As you approach Ronda, you immediately notice its most memorable natural landmark — the legendary gorge, El Tajo, which divides the town into historic and modern parts, and the stunning Puente Nuevo bridge, which brings the two together.
Getting acquainted with Ronda means getting to know its traditions, gastronomy, history, and modern life. The best way to do this is by strolling and exploring Ronda with our guide. The tour definitely includes Plaza de España, which is a popular place to take pictures and watch people. Next, you visit the premises of the Church of Holy Spirit or the Church of St. Mary and take a glimpse of Ronda’s religious life, where peace and divinity reign.
The tour continues at the Plaza de Toros, which is the finest illustration of the town’s huge cultural heritage. It is worth mentioning that Ronda’s bullring is the oldest in Spain. To commemorate its worthiness and uniqueness, a museum of bullfighting has been opened on the site. Here you can see a lot of exhibits and photographs — of Ernest Hemingway, in particular, since he was an outstanding fan of bullfighting.
If you walk across the stunning Puente Nuevo to Ronda’s other part, you get to the Moorish side of the town. It is here that you can admire the well-preserved 13th-century Arab baths, the old city walls, the city gate, the lovely gardens, and fascinating Moorish palaces. Ronda’s Islamic past is truly impressive. It includes former residences of Moorish kings. Such is the Palacio de Mondragon, which used to shelter King Abomelik, was later redesigned and refurbished into a residence for King Ferdinand, and finally turned into a municipal museum and became open to the public.
Having seen enough of the historic past, you can walk to the Cuenca Gardens, which offer dizzying views of El Tajo, the surrounding countryside, and the best panoramas of the town. After this, you still have enough time to explore Ronda, enjoy your lunch or buy souvenirs before you return to Malaga or your place of accommodation on Costa del Sol.
Situated in the heart of the province of Málaga, Ronda is one of Andalusia’s best destinations with over 35,000 residents. It takes a little more than an hour to get to Ronda from Malaga. Ronda is an ancient town that was settled in the 6th century B.C. by the early Celts and then the Romans. It has always been an important winemaking region and a popular resort area. Don’t skip the chance to explore the town’s history and modern life and take our private tour of Ronda.
