Famous for its breath-taking views overlooking El Tajo canyon and a green carpet of lush farmland, with successive mountain ranges beyond, the historic city of Ronda is perched high above the Guadalevín river in the heart the Serranía de Ronda mountains. This charming country town is situated around 100 kilometres from Málaga and 60 kilometres from the coast. The town itself is situated at more than 720 metres above sea level, while the municipal area covers 481 square kilometres, taking in much of the Sierra de las Nieves Natural Par and other areas of outstanding beauty.

Home to over 40,000 people, Ronda is an important hub for the surrounding mountain and agricultural villages, and remains a popular destination for those looking for the ‘real’ Spain. Though the nearby ruins of Acinipo are the site of the old Roman town, Ronda is itself an ancient settlement with lots of history, architecture, culture and gastronomy to offer. As the hometown of bullfighting and the ‘bandolero’ highwaymen of the 18th and 19th centuries, it is rich in traditions and tales, beautiful old palaces and typically Andalusian experiences to savour. In addition to forming the gateway to the beautiful mountainous hinterland, it is also the centre of a burgeoning winemaking area whose mostly organic wines are gaining in international renown.
