Come and visit Ronda and the surrounding areas, or plan your itinerary around the most popular sites, and some of the lesser known things to do. Ronda is much more than the bullring and new bridge (Puente Nuevo). There are also the Arab Baths, the Water Mine, the Mondragon Palace, and outside the city, the Cueva de la Pileta, or the Dolmen structures at Antequera. Further afield are the beaches of the Costa del Sol, Sevilla’s cathedral and palace, or Cordoba and the Mezquita. And of course for discovering the beautiful Sierra de Grazalema have a look at Wildside Holidays – Grazalema

Weather in Ronda

The weather in Ronda is fairly typical of Southern Spain, however being surrounded by mountains gives Ronda some unique weather patterns making our summers and winters a bit different from the Costa del Sol. First of all we’re situated several hundred metres higher than the coast, and on top of a plateau surrounded by lower valleys and higher mountains, often meaning the weather in Ronda can be markedly different from even some of the nearer villages such as Montecorto or Grazalema.
