Introduction

Ronda is one of Andalucia´s loveliest towns, steeped in history. It stands on a towering plateau in the mountains of Malaga Province, and is famous through Spain for the plunging river gorge which divides the medieval from the 18th century parts of the town. This gorge is known as El Tajo - The Cliff and is spanned by a stone bridge, which once housed a prison. Visitors love to peer down into the gorge, to see the waters of the River Guadalevín.

Ronda sits in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda, about a hundred kms from the city of Malaga and it has a population of approximately 35,000 inhabitants. 

Surrounded by lush river valleys and sitting above a deep ravine, it is a place that literally takes your breath away when seeing it. Anyone who has visited Ronda will understand its appeal. It is one of the prettiest cities in Spain (being the third most visited city in Andalucia) and it is a very popular day trip for people on a Costa del Sol holiday.

Ronda (Acinipo) was first declared a city by Julius Caesar in the first century AD. When the Moorish troops under the command of Tarik-ibn-Zeyad invaded the region in 8C, one of the first routes they followed was the old Roman one, linking Gibraltar with the Roman settlement of Acinipo.They renamed the town to Izna-Rand-Onda - Ronda. The ruins of Acinipo actually sit 20Km outside of modern-day Ronda.

The Puente Nuevo – new bridge – was actually completed in 1793 and took forty two years to build. The bridge joins the old Moorish town and the newer, El Mercadillo parts of the city. It is, by far in a way, Ronda’s most famous landmark.
