Ronda was an important Muslim fortress until late 15th century when it surrendered to the Catholic monarchs. Today, this beautiful small rural city is known for its romantic atmosphere. Ronda is a top honeymoon destination, ideal for a romantic getaway!
The “City of Dreams” boasts the Puento Nuevo (the new bridge) which is one of the most famous and photographed sites in Spain. The 390-foot drop down to the river below take a breath away.
Ronda is also the birthplace of modern bullfighting. It was here that Pedro Romero, the legendary bullfighter from the famous dynasty of matadores de toros, invented the classical style of bullfighting and set up the rules of bullfighting. Ronda’s Plaza de Toros is one of the oldest in Spain. Once a year Goyesca, the country’s most famous bull fight, takes place there. Lots of famous people visited the arena, for example, Ernest Hemingway or Orson Wells.
