If you are visiting Ronda during the week from the 6th to the 10th of June 2017 then you are in for a treat as the Ronda Guitar House are running their Guitar Festival.
RONDA GUITAR FESTIVAL aims to put Ronda on the map as a meeting point to enjoy Andalucian culture, Spanish music and in particular the Spanish guitar. Celebrated over five days the Ronda Guitar Festival will host a range of interesting activities in which to participate. Fine Guitar makers will exhibit their hand-made guitars and be on hand to answer any queries. Internationally renowned guitarists will perform concerts in unforgettable venues, followed by the opportunity to attend a masterclass.

I highly recommend booking in advance because of the popularity of the concerts and the limited tickets available… get in touch with the Guitar House in Ronda to arrange your tickets…
