Puente Nuevo Closed to Traffic

From the end of January 2018, and for the foreseeable future, it is important to note that vehicle access across the Puente Nuevo is restricted… The bridge is CLOSED to traffic from 10am to 1:30pm and 5pm to 8pm. So be warned if you are arriving in Ronda during these times and need to get to your hotel in the centre of town…

The easiest way to get to the old town and hotels on the other side of the bridge from the Parador by car is to take the Algecirus road and enter Ronda via the area known as Barrio San Francisco… The junction for this and your main reference point is the new hospital on the road from Ronda to San Pedro… Once you find the hospital roundabout you will easily find your way to Barrio San Francisco and the old town…  If you are at barrio San Francisco and need to get to the parador bullring side then stay on the road towards Jerez/Seville untill you come to the main roundabout into Ronda.

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.

Restaurant – El Meson Simancon – Grazalema

So you are in Ronda for a few days (or just passing through) and want to get away to the mountains for a while? Just 40 minutes away by car is the stunning Sierra de Grazalema. Why not take a drive, enjoy the scenery and a wonderful afternoon or evening meal.

The Simancon restaurant is easy to find though in a somewhat unlikely location, on the edge of the main Grazalema car park and dining outside in summer is a very pleasant experience and an ideal place to sit, relax and watch the world go by.

The menu of salads & other starters, including several soups, offers more than adequate choice, ranging far beyond the normal fast food fare of chips and fried pork and includes superb venison steaks, wild rabbit and roasted lamb.

The waiting staff (Jesus, Patro and Cati) are friendly, helpful & attentive to everyone including vegetarian or other dietary needs so one is ever disappointed! First class wholesome food & good all round value.

If you need help to reserve a table because you can’t speak Spanish call me (Clive) on (0034) 681 14 70 24 or send me an email at clive@grazalemaguide.com and I will be very happy to make your reservation. RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST AS THIS PLACE FILLS UP FAST!

The Tourist Ticket (The best way to visit Rondas top attractions)

When you get to Ronda (even if you have found Ronda Today useful) the first place on your lisit of visits should be the Tourist Office located by the bull ring (Plaza de Toros.) It is here that the English speaking staff can give you the most up to date info on whats going on in Ronda such as concerts, exhibitions and other events.

But, also, they can sell you the “Tourist Ticket” (Bono Turístico in Spanish.) This one price ticket allows you access to some of the “on the list” places to visit in Ronda. http://www.turismoderonda.es/en/heritage-and-culture/cultural-activities

Prices are 8 euros per adult (6.50 if you have a group of 10 or more people) and under 14 years olds are free.

You can buy the Tourist Tickets in the tourist office, the Museum, the Arab baths and the Puente Nuevo.

This ticket is recommended if you are planning to visit these places anyway as there is a saving of 3 to 5 euros per person (enough saving to spend on a nice tapas :)
