Ronda in a day - March
by Freddie Jade
Visiting Ronda for my first time was very very cold, but on the positive side the skies were still very clear and the views were fantastic. Rey made sure we did a round tour which you can do in about 3 hours starting at the newer parts of town where you will find chic shops, even couture, fun food stands, gastronomy and bistro restaurants. Then down the main street towards the bullring (Eldest in Spain - built in 1784), the gardens and balconies to where the famous views are and over the bridge towards the castle.
Many don’t know this but below the town their are Arabe baths that a partially intact. Unfortunately with twins and the cold, we didn’t get to explore them this time around and instead decided to sit in a to Spanish looking restaurant and ordered every tapa on the menu. After all the cold had got the best of us and there were 6 of us this time, although the little twins don't really do much eating just yet.
Restaurant La Posada on Calle Nueva very close to the famous bridge, Puente Nueva. Cheap & Cheerful, very friendly staff.
English painter David Bomberg lived and worked in Ronda in the 1950s, producing some of the finest landscapes of Spain. Ronda is by far an artistic inspiration. If you are an artists, we advise you do take advantage of its character and ora.
We travelled up through ronda, the drive is by all means pleasant, but slightly windy for those who are a little car sick its best to go prepared and maybe take the bus, you will get to see more thats for sure.
There a few parking lots, and depending on the time of year there is availability at the street parking which is considerably save. Just don't forget to pay at the machines and leave the receipt visible in the car window.
