Ronda is another one of my absolute favourite places to visit in Andalusia (I know I have so many) and somewhere I had never heard of before we moved to Spain.
Its the perfect place to spend the afternoon, perhaps after spending the morning in Setenil de las bodegas (Here) like we did on this particular trip.
Its one of the larger Spanish towns, but still historic and charming at the same time. I remember thinking it was like something out of a fairy tale when I first saw it
The views of Ronda’s most striking feature, the Puente Nuevo, which spans a gorge over 300 feet deep really make it special for me. There is no doubt that there is so much to see and do here but the views of the town set along the cliff really are what sets the town apart.
One of the things I love about Andalusia are the summer ferias. This is a country that like to celebrate and really enjoys life. Each town or village in Andalusia has one, throughout the summer months.
Quite often the towns are dressed to impress with the loveliest decorations, each town different to the last. Doesn't it make quite the sight?
The 'day fair' traditionally takes place in the streets of the town itself. Streets are closed to traffic, and businesses close for the week as well. Tables and chairs are set up and the bars serve food and drink in the street with music playing on every corner
People of all ages sing and dance, and visitors are always welcome. And if you happen to be visiting while one is happening, you are in for a treat.
Do you have a favourite Andalusian town to visit? I'm always looking for new places to discover so please do let me know
