About this trip

This day trip will depart from your cruise terminal. You will admire scenic views of the Andalusian countryside as we drive to Ronda. On  arrival in Ronda, gaze at the dramatic El Tajo gorge, an iconic natural  landmark that slices the town into old and new districts.

Your guide will explain you about the history of  Ronda, its gastronomy and customs. You would be able to take photographs  of the connecting Puente Nuevo bridge and then set out on an  explorative stroll of the town with our guide. Wander through the  ambient Plaza de España and then visit the sacred structures of the  Church of St Mary the Elder and the Church of the Holy Spirit. Hear the  town’s rich historical heritage from your guide before walking to Plaza  de Toros, the oldest bullring in Spain. Visit the museum to see exhibits  that speak eloquently of Spanish bullfighting traditions and see framed  photographs of famous fans like Orson Welles and Ernest Hemingway.

 

Cross the impressive Puente Nuevo bridge, Ronda´s most famous  landmark, which straddles the deep Gorge and connects the Moorish part  of Ronda with the modern part of the city. Here you can truly appreciate  the rugged gorge and the beautiful country landscape. There are many  attractions worth visiting in Ronda. The Arab Baths, built at the end of  the 13th century, are the best preserved in Spain. The old wall and  gate to the city give a unique glimpse into Ronda´s Islamic past. The  Palacio de Mondragon houses the municipal museum and has some  spectacular gardens. It was built and residence of the Moorish King  Abomelik and used later as a residence for King Ferdinand and Queen  Isabelle. The city also has some impressive churches including the  Church of the Holy Spirit and the Church of Santa Maria la Mayor. The  Jardines de Cuenca (Cuenca Gardens) should not be missed as they are  located on ledges over the Tajo and offer spectacular views of the  countryside and city.


Spend the rest of your time in Ronda exploring at your leisure (you will  have time for a quick lunch) and then we will return to the ship  terminal in Malaga.
