Stop sign

by Caitlinette

I was in Ronda this summer, and I wanted to ask...

Why do the signs say "STOP" on them?! Why don't they have it in Spanish? I met only 4 people in Spain who spoke English, and yet their stop sign is in English!

Road signs in Europe adhere to an international standard and look the same everywhere.

Unlike "stop", the "one way" sign changes from country to country: for example, in Italy they have "senso unico" on them.

But, admittedly, the newer ones only have the long white arrow on blue background, with no words.

RE: RE: Stop sign

I think they're trying to standardise road signs throughout the EU such that when you drive from one country to another, there is little risk of confusion. That would seem the logical answer. But then you see anomolies like the highway signs in Italy being green and the ones in France being blue and you end up on the highway when you didn't really want to! :-))

One other thing that I don't get is roundabouts. You're supposed to give way to people who are already on the roundabout (i.e. people coming from your left, on continental Europe anyway). But this is apparently a new concept in some countries as the "give way to the right at a junction" rule applies traditionally. And if the roundabout is NOT clearly marked as a roundabout (a round blue sign with three arrows in a circle) the old rule still applies. I learnt all this fairly recently when I had to re-sit my drivers test in Italy as I couldn't convert my foreign drivers licence.

Green is the new standard for highways, blue for other main roads, white for local roads. French road authorities seem to be lagging behind.

Stop has been stop in Sweden looooong before EU was heard of. It's simply internationalised road rules where stop is considered the most important one to follow I guess.

Always annoys me since the Swedish word would be the same but with only an additional "p" i.e. "stopp". How difficult is that. Stop in Swedish is something I drink beer out of :)))

RE: RE: Stop sign

by sierralyndon

Hah hah, that's funny. I can imagine you thinking of beer every time you get to a Stop sign. Actually, thinking about it, there are some STOP signs in Italy that say "ALT" but usually not on major roads if I recall correctly.

Then again, maybe it's because they only want English speaking tourists to stop!!!

Travel Tips for Ronda

A City to make you Dizzy

by Geoff_Wright

How anyone can be expected to talk about a 'single' site when visiting Ronda, is beyond me! There's just so much to see. The fondest memory, if you can call it that, has to be the magnificent views from the city down into the gorge, and to the plains below.
Oh yes, I remember this one. This is where I felt the effects of vertigo, whilst standing on a pinnacle of rock. I was OK until I put the camera up to my eye, then........... Ugh!!!

About Ronda 3

by Carnation

The `pueblos blancos` have a turbulent history. The name `de la Frontera` and ruined castles chronicle the medieval boundary between Moorish and Christian kingdoms and Arabic hues linger in the narrow sun-baked streets of whitewashed houses.

Santa María La Mayor

by Carmela71

Considered to be one of the most important churches in the town.

Today all that remains of the former building is the lower section of the bell-tower, which has a Renaissance belfry on top of the "Alminar" tower of the Mosque.

About Ronda 9

by Carnation

Izn-Rand Onda, as Ronda was called by the Moors, was one of the major towns in Mussulman Spain. The Arabian baths, the bridge Puente Viejo and two small palaces, Casa del Gigante and Casa de Mondragón still remain of this epoch. Puente Nuevo, the `new bridge`, which is spanning over Tajo river in a height of almost 100 meters. It looks like an old Roman aqueduct, but was built in the 18th century by architect José Martin de Aldehuela.

Free map of Ronda

by HORSCHECK

Make sure you pick up a free map of Ronda at one of the two Tourist Information Offices. They offer a useful map in various languages which not only shows the locations of the sights, but also gives brief descriptions of the monuments.

Ronda has two Tourist Information Offices. One is located at the Paseo de Blas Infante just opposite the Bullring and the other one can be found at the Plaza de Espana near the northern end of the New Bridge (Puente Nuevo).
