Fantastic drone footage of Ronda with music by Paco Seco

Earlier this year I went on a family holiday to Andalusia. Unknowing to It’s beauty, we stumbled across Ronda when browsing a coach timetable.

From the moment I saw the photos of Ronda on my Google search, I knew I had to see it for myself – and it was spectacular!

After a few months of sitting on a Hard Drive, the footage has now been really bought alive after it’s parring with music from an incredibly talented musician local to Ronda, Paco Seco.

Paco was born in Andalusia and co-founded the ‘Ronda Guitar House’ with the mission of providing truly authentic, culturally rich and quality music in the city of Ronda.

Museums of Ronda

The museums  of Ronda are a delightful way to spend a few hours for both holiday makers and residents alike. Children will love the Lara Museum, while adults may prefer the museum of wine. Art aficionados will positively love the collection of Joaquin Peinado.

Ronda Municipal Museum.

Located in the historic Mondragon Palace (Palacio de Mondragon), the Municipal Museum of Ronda details Rondas history from the stone age to the present time with some very well made exhibits such as the Pileta Cave reconstruction, the stone age hut, iron age technology including sword making, the Roman period with an important exhibit on Acinipo, Moorish Ronda including a detailed exhibit of Arab funeral rites, and a very interesting display on life in Ronda’s heyday, the 17th and 18th centuries.

Over the last millenium Flamenco has spread to the rest of Spain and the former Spanish colonies in Central and South America.
