Ronda Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to Ronda
A muse for poets, writers, and artists alike, the sheer beauty of Ronda, Spain cannot be overstated.
A sparkling gem among the jewels of Andalusia, it’s an unforgettable day trip from the larger cities in the region, as well as being an excellent base in itself if you’re a lover of history, architecture, and sun.
Known for its iconic bridges, notably the large 18th-century Puento Nuevo, Ronda is one of the best-preserved ancient towns in Spain. Ernest Hemingway and Rainer Rilke were both known to have been inspired by the bridge, as well as the plunging scenery it crosses. The longstanding city walls are also impressive, and for a more modern homage to the former Islamic rulers of the region you can head to the Jean Claude Forestier designed Casa del Rey Moro (or Castle of the Moorish King, as it’s known in English).
With Newmarket Holidays, you can make sure your visit to Ronda fits in all the highlights, from Plaza del Socorro, where the first Andalusian flag was raised, to the breath-taking Tajo Gorge which splits the city in two. No matter which tour you choose to visit Ronda on, there’s no doubt it will be an unforgettable experience.
Ronda tours for solo travellers
Be inspired to travel solo. Newmarket Holidays welcomes solo travellers on all our group tours. In fact, many of our customers choose to join our tours on their own. And the best part is: you won’t really be alone. With a group of like-minded travellers and a friendly, informative tour manager (as well as incredible locals all over the world!), you will love your holiday experience. Joining a tour as a solo traveller is also a guaranteed way to feel safe and confident when travelling alone. While you can join any of our regular tours on your own, we also have a range of tours designed exclusively for solo travellers.
Things to do in Ronda
Take a holiday to Ronda and take in the expansive views from the ancient bridges, or soak in the atmosphere of the old bullfighting rings. It's a fascinating look at Spanish history and culture.
See the view from the top of the Puente Nuevo
Admiring the view from the top of the Puente Nuevo is one of Ronda’s must-do activities. You can peer into the lush greenery of the Tajo Gorge while admiring the 18th-century architecture of the bridge, and get great views of the town itself.
Visit the Bullring of the Royal Cavalry of Ronda
No Ronda tour is complete without a visit to the Bullring of the Royal Cavalry of Ronda. This 18th-century bullfighting ring is now a museum dedicated to the history of this town, and the sport that once made it so famous.
Head down to Cueva del Gato
While the gorge itself is well worth simply looking at, heading down to Cueva del Gato gives you the chance to dip into the refreshing water and explore ancient caves replete with rock art.
Things to see in Ronda
In Ronda, you can see the ancient city walls that encircle the old settlement, or visit more recent examples of Moorish architecture.
Food and drink in Ronda
Game is a big source of meat here.
And none more so than rabbit. Any rabbit dish in Ronda is likely to be among the best a restaurant offers, so make sure to give the flavoursome meat a try.
Simple recipes and quality ingredients is the name of the game when it comes to food from Ronda, and nothing fits that bill better than the local mushroom dishes. Mushroom picking is a huge part of local culture here, and the variety on offer means you’ll always be met with a taste sensation when dipping into the local fungi.
Pestinos, or honey fritters, are a local specialty that you’ll be desperate to fill a suitcase with to take home. Light, crunchy, and deliciously rich, having only one is practically impossible, so you may as well stuff yourself!
