Celia Morales Flamenco Guitarist and Composer

Celia Morales, a truly talented Flamenco guitarist in Ronda

No trip to Ronda would be complete without hearing at least a small amount of Flamenco guitar. But to visit one of Celias concerts is an absolute treat. She is one of the most talented flamenco guitarist I have ever heard and she can be seen playing at Calle Calvo Asensio, 8. (RONDA) at 7.70pm most nights.

At 10 euros per person, the entrance fee is amazingly cheap to see this wonderful composer and musician. You can go to her website and hear some of her work as the music starts to load as you open the home page. Check out the below video to see here in action. Truly talented.

Casa de Gigante - Museum in Ronda

Casa del Gigante

The House of the Giant, otherwise known as the Casa del Gigante in Ronda’s old city is one of the most complete examples of Nasrid architecture outside of Granada and definitely a destination that should be on your list of places to see in Ronda.

Located in a quiet plaza behind the Santa Maria La Mayor church, and directly across from the Museo Peinado, the Casa del Gigante is just 2 minutes walk from the Puente Nuevo and Plaza d’España, and not too far from the Mondragon Palace. A statue of Vincent Espinel is located directly in front of the entrance to the House of the Giant. The palace was already more than 100 years old at the time of the fall of Ronda to Ferdinand’s army in 1485 and apart from some redecorating in the 17th century is still largely complete as a Moorish building.

The Camino del Rey in El Chorro

The Camino del Rey, El Chorro and Guadalhorce Reservoirs

If you are on a road trip across Andalucia then a visit to Ronda is probably on your list but one other recommended place is the stunning area in Malaga province just an hour away from Ronda. The Guadalhorce reservoirs, The kings path (Caminito del Rey) and El Chorro are well worth a drive by and certainly a night in a local hotel.

Famous for the terrifying footpath just a metre wide and hanging from the cliffs in a narrow gorge the kings path has almost been restored to it’s former glory. The Guadalhorce reservoirs are huge and the scenery breathtaking.

Too much information to put on the Ronda Today website so we have built a dedicated website for this area over at www.caminodelrey.es All the information you need including hotel booking and articles about the area.

Acinipo, Ronda la Vieja

Romans in Ronda

The Roman Empire had been expanding out of the Italian peninsula and finally found it’s way to Iberia as Roman and Carthaginian forces battled for control of the Mediterranean, and sadly the peace known around Ronda was shattered beginning in the 2nd century BC. Rome and Carthage fought two bloody and protracted wars, with Spain suffering terribly as Roman armies vied for control of key supply routes.
