Our website about the city of dreams - Ronda in Andalusia.

www.rondatoday.com

A small city perched on a seemingly precarious platform of rock, Ronda is in fact an impregnable fortress only defeated in battle through trickery, and during the reconquest with modern (for the era) rock blasting cannon.

The mountains and valleys of the Serranía de Ronda are home to a tough breed of people, yet in Ronda these people are refined, some are gentry, some gypsies, others are just common folk, but all proudly call themselves Rondeños.

These days the population of Ronda is a little over 35,000. Big enough to offer all the essential services, but not big enough to suffer traffic problems or big city woes.

Rondeños have played a pivotal role in shaping Andalucía and modern Spain, and the city has hosted some of the great names of politics, the arts, education, and played her role in military events.

An hour from the Costa del Sol, Ronda is too far away to be heavily influenced by events on the coast, yet still close enough to benefit from the economic strength that tourism brings to Southern Spain. At a height of 723m in the Ronda mountains, the city has a cooler year round temperature than the coast, making life in Ronda altogether more agreeable than other Andalucían cities.

Ronda is also the perfect base to explore other cities such as Sevilla, Granada, Córdoba, Jerez de la Frontera, Cadiz, Antequera, or Malaga.

 

Getting to Ronda by Train and then Grazalema by bus.

Unfortunately the train doesn't get to Grazalema and the nearest station is in the nearby town of Ronda. Still, its fairly easy to get to Grazalema by public transport. Catch a train from anywhere in Spain to Ronda and then the bus to Grazalema. The bus station in Ronda is just a few minutes walk from the train station. Bus information can be found over at Ronda Today
