It is one of the most visited towns in Andalucia with most people arriving on day excursions from the Costa del Sol.
Some artefacts found around Ronda date back to prehistoric times (as far as 28000 BC). Every architectural era is represented here including Roman, Arabic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque.
In this constantly expanding section we provide all the tourist information you'll need to know to make the most of your stay in Ronda.
Ronda lies 60km up a winding mountain road from Marbella in the mountain range known as the Serranía de Ronda.
Every day cars drive up from the Costa Del Sol to visit what is one of Andalucia's top tourist destinations.
If you drive up you should park in the public parking by the bullring or one of the nearby underground car parks as it's easy to walk around the whole town in a short time. Driving around is fairly impossible.
If you arrive by public transport, Ronda's train and bus stations are both in the Mercadillo quarter to the northeast of the bullring. Trains arrive on Avenida Andalucía, a ten-minute walk or easy bus ride from the center, and all the bus companies use the terminal close by on Plaza Redondo.
For train timetables and routes see www.renfe.es.
There is a tourist information office (turismo) on the Plaza de España near the Parador hotel and another across the car park from the bullring.
