Ronda is a beautiful village in the south of Spain. It is located in the Andalusia region and is part of the White Villages route. Ronda is perhaps the most beautiful and nicest village in Andalusia and you should definitely visit it during your trip.
Fifty kilometers inland from the Costa del Sol and 105 kilometers from Málaga is one of the most beautiful cities in Andalusia, Ronda. The city in Spain with 33,877 inhabitants is located in a mountainous area and is located at an altitude of 750 meters. The city is split in two by the river Guadalevín, which has left a deep gorge. This deep gorge, the Tajo de Ronda, is also worth what Ronda has become famous for.
The history of Ronda as a city even goes back to the prehistoric and Celtic periods and under the Romans the lively trading place was given the name Arunda; 'around', a fitting name since you could strategically look around the entire area from the higher city. Like the rest of southern Spain, Ronda was also dominated by the Moors. Many historic buildings from the city date from this period. In 1485 the city came back into the hands of the Christians and many old buildings were adapted to a new Christian role. In the following century, Ronda also became home to the Real Maestranza de Caballería, the oldest and most noble order of equestrian art, where horses were trained for the military.
