CITY

New Bridge

The New Bridge is the most emblematic monument of the city of Ronda in Malaga and was built between 1751 and 1793. It joins the historical and modern areas of the city by saving the Tajo de Ronda, a gorge more than 100 meters deep excavated by the Guadalevín river.

The viewpoint is located next to the bridge and from there you can enjoy incredible views of the Tajo.

Aldehuela Viewpoint

One of the most popular viewpoints in the city. The views of the gorge, the New Bridge and the surrounding countryside are spectacular. 

The viewpoint has been named after the architect José Martín de Aldehuela. The same architect who built the bullring, the Puente Nuevo and finished the Málaga cathedral, among other projects. The Balcón del Coño viewpoint is another one not to be missed.  It is said that everyone who looks out, exclaims “coño!”, as vulgar as it may seem, has already been baptized with this name.

Bullring

The Real Maestranza bullring is one of the oldest and most picturesque in Spain. It has a capacity of 5,000 spectators.

The rise of bullfighting brought the Real Maestranza of the Cavalry from Ronda to erect its famous bullring, a work that is attributed to Martín de Aldehuela, the same architect of the New Bridge over the Tajo of Ronda. The construction of the square took six years, and it was inaugurated in 1785 with a bullfight in which Pedro Romero and Pepe-Hillo performed. 

Acinipo Ruins

Acinipo or more correctly Acinippo is an archaeological site located 20 kilometers from Ronda.

The name ‘Acinipo,’ means ‘city of wine’, and it was one of the few cities in the Roman Empire to export wine to Rome.

Located at 999 metres above sea level, it occupies a strategic position on a rise in the terrain.

Arab Baths

The Arab Baths of Ronda (also known as the Arab Baths of San Miguel), were built at the end of the 13th century during the reign of King Abomeliko

It follows the Muslim adaptation of the old Roman baths and consists of the same parts (cold, warm and hot room, hypocaust and boiler and reception room), but unlike the Romans, where the baths are carried out by immersion in large pools, the Muslims are mainly steam baths, although they sometimes have a small pool.

Moorish Walls

Throughout history, Ronda has been one of the most impregnable cities in Andalusia. This is due to its geographical position and to its set of walls and accesses built by the Arabs throughout the Islamic era.

As the city grew, more walls and gates were built. Today, they offer a unique insight into Ronda’s past.

The Murallas del Carmen have been recently reformed. There are many cultural events taking place there and the Church of the Holy Spirit is right next door.

Cueva del Gato (Cat Cave)

The Cueva del Gato is actually the southern mouth of the speleological system called the Hundidero-Gato system, although the whole complex is usually known by the name of this, its most famous mouth.

This is the most important system in Andalusia with more than 9000 m topographed and one of the largest in Spain, with permanent water, chasms, lakes, siphons and some danger because the intense rains in the area make the underground channel vary very quickly, coupled with the temperature of its waters, has caused the death of several people.

 It is considered a good of cultural interest, because of its cave paintings, and natural monument.
