About Ronda Today
Ronda Today is the largest English language portal in the Serranía de Ronda covering tourism, art and culture, information of specific interest to foreign residents, and news from the Serranía. The website is a huge ongoing work in progress, and is updated almost every day.
We take our responsibility to produce the most accurate information seriously. We employ writers with graduate level English writing skills, and sales people who are fluent or native Spanish speakers. Respect for our readers and advertisers is a high priority.
We’ve worked hard to build up Ronda Today into the site it is today, but we have ambitious goals, including the creation of an online magazine for Ronda and the Serranía, as well as use of email to alert our readers of the latest happenings and goings on. In addition, we are also planning several sister sites, Antequera Today, and Andalusia Today.
If you have photographs of the Serranía, Ronda, or the Pueblos Blancos that you’d like to share with our readers, we’d be delighted to receive them. On a related note, if you’d like to share your personal anecdotes, reviews of hotels or restaurants, favourite local recipes, or anything at all you think we should be covering, please email us. Email Ronda Today using firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll reply within a day or two at the latest.
Several contributors should be mentioned by name, including Simone Icough, David Nuyen, Claire Conway, Leigh Alexander, Bearnard O’Riain, Clive Muir and Sue Eatock along with others who prefer to remain anonymous for privacy reasons. The team at Ronda Today is proud of our achievements in two years, and as the future unfolds we offer our commitment to the growth of this resource for visitors and residents alike.

RondaToday.com is a website written by people who live and work in Ronda and the Serranía, and is aimed at tourists planning a visit to Ronda, the Peublos Blancos, and the Natural Parks surrounding the district. We provide detailed information on the history and culture of the area, and plan to offer a series of ideas for tourists who want to know what they can do while they travel through the Serranía de Ronda.
Foreign residents of Ronda and the district are also our target audience, and we take pride in giving them information about local services and events. With an unofficial population of 10,000 foreign residents in the vicinity of Ronda, we aim to become the main source of news, events, and activities for foreign residents.
Ronda Today is an ideal website for local business people to advertise their services to the English speaking community of Ronda, and also to tourists who don’t speak Spanish. We are actively promoting Ronda Today which is now the largest English language website for Ronda and the surrounding Serranía.
According to all sources, including the British Foreign Office, there are over 1 million people from the United Kingdom living in Spain. Unofficial estimates place around 10,000 English speaking people within a 40 km radius of Ronda. In addition, hundreds of thousands of people visit Ronda each year from the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Scandinavia etc. Many visitors don’t speak Spanish, but do speak English as a second language. Ronda Today is one of their main sources of information.
