Walking around Ronda

by dvik

I am planning my holidays to Andalucia between 29/8 ~ 9/9. I am thinking to include Ronda. I heard that there are nice areas to walk around like a gorge and a national park.

I would like to stay 2/3 days in Ronda if it is possible to join a guided group (preferably hikers in 20~40) for one or two days long walks (and spend a day to see the city).

Is any company or meeting place that you can join a group on the day and go for a walk around? Are also walking excursions in the 'white villages' based in Ronda? What about costs?

I do not speak Spanish (speek only English and Greek).

Any help is welcome.

Dimitri,

There are a lot to see around Ronda. Sorry don't have any further info. I just moved to Estepona a few weeks ago and we really like.

Thanks

Georgios

Ronda is very spectacular and there is a fair amount to see there, but I dont think staying over 3 days/2 nights is necessary. One overnight should enable you to see most everything you want to and to relax in the cafes overlooking the gorge. Great place to visit.

i stayed in a hotel in Tolox, i think it was called Hotel Cerro de Hijar. It was situated right onto of a hill which was midway between a town and national park. Was ideal for getting up and starting our walk straight away!

Travel Tips for Ronda

Arab Walls and City Gates

by HORSCHECK

During the Arabic period the city of Ronda was protected by the El Tajo gorge on the northern side and by massive city walls with gates on the other sides.
The most important gate from this time is the Almocabar Gate at the southern end of the city. It dates back to the 13th century and consists of semicircular towers and three arches.
Other defensive fortifications include the Cijara Gate and its walls at the eastern side and the walls of Albacara on the western side of the city.

A BIT ABOUT RONDA

by LoriPori

Coming from the Celtic name Arunda "Surrounded by Mountains" RONDA stands on a towering plateau, which is divided in two by a plunging river gorge known as El Tajo. El Tajo is spanned by a bridge called the Puente Nuevo which was built in the 18th century and provides access to both sides of the town. On one side of the bridge is the Old Moorish town with many historic buildings and on the other side you will find El Mercadillo ( "Little Market" ) the more recent urban development, with shops, cafe's and restaurants. It is very popular with day-trippers from the Costa del Sol and tour companies bring tourists by the busload to this very picturesque town.
Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles resided in Ronda for many years and both wrote about its beauty. I have had the pleasure of visiting Ronda on two occasions. First in 2002 and in May 2006 with Matim (Ilse) and family.

Doorway Coats of Arms

by hquittner

It seems that every aristocrat in Ronda (and there appear to have been many) emblazoned his doorway with his coat of arms. This merely mimiced the Royal Presence which was proclaimed on building walls as well as gates (and doors). Most of them are wrought ceramic clay and they are everywhere you look. I am not informed about heraldry but found the devices to be intriguing. I did not keep a record about where I saw most of them.
