My daughter and I will be stopping in Ronda on our way to a self-catered apartment. We want to buy some basic groceries for our stay. Anyone know of stores and locations of them in Ronda? Thanks
Ohh, shoot, I went to a grocery store all the time when I was in Ronda, but I can't remember exactly where it is. It's close to the bus station. I can't remember what it's called -- I saw them all over Spain. Sumas? You could email someone from Ronda on VT and ask them!
RE: RE: Groceries
There is a Spar on Cruz Verde, about 3 streets above Plaza del Socorro (the main square) in the Mercadillo area.
Travel Tips for Ronda
mirador overhanging la sierra de ronda
a city seated in a highly exceptionnal site.
800m altitude.....in the centre of a huge cirque of mountains,on the edge of a rocky plateau with a 160m depth break.... in spite of its "violence",we may speak of osmosis between apparently contradictory things as a breathtaking gorge,renaissance narrow streets and plazas ,crowds of tourists,and dayly life of a small andalusian city....
The Highlands of Sierra del Ronda
It was a very beautiful drive, on a lovely and cool spring day, up to the beautiful village of Ronda.
According to many archaeological finds, the area of La Serrania, or the highlands around Ronda, have been inhabited since prehistoric times and then later by Iberians, Romans, Visigoths, Arabs and finally Christians.
The highlands comprise a series of mountains encircling the city of Ronda, clothed with indigenous tree species, such as chestnuts, cork trees, and above all the ‘Pinsapo’, a type of pine only found in this region of Europe.
Situated beneath the shaded sections, the items on display at the Ronda bullfighting museum are grouped into three broad sections, the chivalries order of the Real Maestranza de Caballeria evolution of the art of bullfighting, and the town’s contribution to the art of bullfighting.
After visiting the museum Lori and I discover the forbidden sign for taken pictures, oeps!
A lovely park area which is tree lined, flowers and affords spectacular views over the valley.
We sat at a bar just outside the park, the bar was on the other side of the road, but the tables and chairs were next to the park area and the waiter had to keep dodging traffic bringing peoples orders across the road.
As we found out during our drive around Portugal in 2004, 'azulejos' are a unique and famous method of making colourful ceramic tiles for decorative purposes - first introduced to the Iberian Peninsula over 1000 years ago by the Moorish invaders from Africa. Not only beautiful, they are also extremely durable and allow the creation of a wide variety of themes pleasing to the eye. In our case, we ran across this large and very nice aerial view of Ronda just after crossing Puente Neuvo into Old Ronda. This particular type of azulejo, using large painted glazed tiles was developed in Italy in the 1500s. The display shows Ronda's circular bullring at lower left and, only a short distance to the right, Puente Neuvo leading further into Ronda. We later walked along the cliff face on the right side, passing a series of expensive hotels and restaurants with seating on the edge of the cliff, until we reached a 'look-out' point where we had some wonderful views back toward the bridge and out into the valley.
Just a few feet further on from the azulejo map, we came across a shop (2nd photo) selling local artifacts including paintings, handcrafts and so on. The ladies had a good look inside but, in the end decided not to buy anything.
