Welcome to Ronda!
I´m Stef (Superhost and Co-host) in Ronda. Let me help you find all the best places to visit during your stay!

    Select where you wanna go:

    Best place to start discovering Ronda.
    Alameda del Tajo
    Alameda del Tajo (Google Maps)
    Here you can walk all the way to the end of the park. This is where the cliff is and has beautiful views, a kiosk and public toilets.

    At the end of the park turn left to continue, at the bull fight arena turn right towards:
    Mirador la Sevillana
    Mirador la Sevillana (Google Maps)

    After that just keep following the pathway towards the big bridge which is ironically called "Puente Nuevo" (New bridge):
    Puente Nuevo Ronda

    Once you are at the new bridge, it´s time to discover the "Puente Viejo" (Old bridge).
    The most beautiful way to do that is going down through de "Jardines de Cuenca"

    Jardines de Cuenca (Google Maps)

    Down this park is the old bridge, just follow the pathway along the city walls, Arabic baths up into the historical center.
    From there on is so much to see and too much to mention. Explore it!

    *Extra Recommendation! The most beautiful pictures are taking from down below the bridge. There is a (Hard-to-find without GPS) pathway that will guide you there:
    Cuesta de la Risa

    By far the best tapas & drinks place of Ronda is "Entre Vinos".
    Entre Vinos
    Entre Vinos (Google Maps)
    Is is a very small place which always fills rapedly. (So be on time when opening or put yourself in the waiting list).
    It has the best quality tapas and the lowest prices. Also a wonderful local red wine you can try here, is called "Lunares".

    Another great place to have some tapas & drinks is "Tabanco Los Arcos".
    Tabanco Los Arcos
    Tabanco Los Arcos (Google Maps)
    This place is perfectly situated with great views, right next to the big bridge.
    Here you can order the favourite local red wine of most people from Ronda "Encaste".

    A good restaurant that is almost always open and has a big variety of foods is "Las Maravillas".

    Las Maravillas (Google Maps)
    Located near the bull fight arena and in the main shopping street, this place is always busy.
    They have a big menu with always something to anyone´s liking.

    If you are looking for a typical Malagan lunch, you should go to "Tarberna la Merced".
    Tarberna la Merced
    Tarberna la Merced (Google Maps)
    This hidden gem is the perfect place to get a local lunch. They have different 3 course menus and everything is super deliscious. And the prices make you feel like you are stealing.
    If you are into cheese cake, Try this for dessert!

    Looking for a fancy romantic dinner with the best views? You should check out "Restaurante Panorámico".
    Restaurante Panorámico
    Restaurante Panorámico (Google Maps)
    On a high floor terrace of the "Catalonia Hotel" is this wonderful romantic restaurant with best views over the bull fight arena and the mountains behind it. I've called and asked: People spend an average of €40,- per person there. But ofcourse you can make it as fancy as you want in this place.

    The best hiking place is ofcourse in the mountains! Close to Ronda are the mountains "Sierra de las Nieves" (of the snow). (25km)
