Ronda and Setenil de Las Bodegas Tour Overview
The classic day trip from the Costa del Sol is a tour to the beautiful and historic city of Ronda. Perched on a buttress of rock and surrounded by the high peaks of the nearby Sierras, the town is divided in two by the El Tajo gorge, and its two halves connected by the famous “Puente Nuevo”. Ronda is a city of stunning views, due to its mix of natural beauty, being surrounded by the rugged limestone peaks of surrounding natural parks, its beguiling labyrinth of streets, impressive palaces, mansions and churches and convents as well as thousands of years of history and culture.

Just a few kilometres from Ronda in the general direction of Acinipo you will find the vineyard F.Shatz Spread out southwards over a gentle slope with views towards the Sierra de Grazalema and Sierra de las Nieves. Hailing from a wine growing family in the Wuerttemberg region of Germany, Friedrich Schatz chose Ronda as the base for his new winery on the Ronda-Acinipo Road. F. Schatz has since become known for their organic wines, Lemberger (Bodega Schatz is the only vineyard in Spain to produce single-variety wines of these grapes.), Chardonnay, and Muskattrollinger. All grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small containers to prevent breaking of the skins. Fruitiness and natural earthy aromas are the hallmark of F. Schatz wines.
Strictly by appointment only so ask in the tourist office or your hotel reception to help you organise your visit

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.
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 :)
