As is the case with many southern Spanish cities, Ronda is at its best for visiting during the spring and the autumn. These are the periods of the year where the temperatures are pleasant and the climate settled. Although the town’s hottest months are during the summer, it can become overwhelmingly hot in this part of the world which forces you indoors out of the midday sun. Winter is still a beautiful time to visit, although there are less tourist facilities open.
One of Ronda’s most iconic sights is the Puente Nuevo. This huge bridge over the Tajo gorge stands at a height equivalent of a 30-storey building! It connects the quarter of La Ciudad with the Mercadillo. Other great things to do in Ronda include a visit to the Interpretation Center of Ronda Wine. This old winery is now a museum of wine which offers wine tasting and vineyard tours at a cheap price.

Despite Ronda being a relatively small town compared to the likes of Malaga itself, it still manages to fit plenty of accommodation options into a small place. On some streets, there are more hotels than non-hotels! There are hostels, mid-range and even some luxurious choices in the town for you to pick from. Like with the hotels, there are plenty of places to eat out. However, we advise that you stay away from the touristy parts of the town as they are often overpriced - keep an eye out for the smaller cafes and bars!
