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.

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. It is quiet in the afternoons and evenings & 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. To reserve a table in English call Clive on (0034) 697 30 89 85 or send me an email at email@example.com and I will be very happy to make your reservation.

The Puente Nuevo is one of Ronda’s most famous landmarks, in fact the bridge is one of the most photographed manmade structures in Spain. The interpretation museum is inside the bridge, in the large room under the road. At verious times this has been a prison, a hotel, and a bar.
Descending the outside steps visitors find themselves standing on a wide ledge overlooking the gorge, and giving a great view of the arches of the bridge up close. You can also take a photo through the arch to the mountains.
Today I had the pleasure of journeying to the Genal Valley, specifically along the Ronda-Algeciras road until the turn off for Jubrique, and then towards the Genal river to wet my feet, followed by a stroll around Genalguacil admiring the art and relaxing in a local bar with a cold one, before returning to Ronda.
The Ronda-Pilar de Coca loop (PR-A 71) is a wonderful walk for exercise junkies and visitors to Ronda alike, it’s a circular route that takes us about 9km out of Ronda, past vineyards, oak groves, an old aqueduct that supplied Ronda with water, the Pilar de Coca spring, and finally the mountains of the Sierra de las Nieves and the Serranía de Ronda.
