Wine tasting tours and visiting a winery in Ronda.

Where to find a wine tour in Ronda?

Over the last few years the wineries (“bodegas” in Spanish) of Ronda have greatly increased their production and are going through what can only be described as a “boom time”. There are over 20 excellent vineyards producing Red, Rosé and white wines with the denomination of origin “Wines of Malaga” (Malaga being the province that Ronda belongs to.) Many of the wineries are open to the public for wine tasting tours and some even provide full lunches and dinners with matched wines to the food courses.

Bodegas la Sangre de Ronda.

If you are in Ronda then this is probably the best place to start as they have there own wine museum and interpretation centre located on the street called Gonzalez Campos (number 2.) This wine company obviously has a great passion for  wine and their philosophy as a winery  is to investigate and share viticulture and oenology practices.

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.

The Tourist Ticket (The best way to visit Rondas top attractions)

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 which is 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 sell you the “tourist ticket”.

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. http://www.turismoderonda.es/en/heritage-and-culture/cultural-activities

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 Municipal Tourist Office, in Paseo Blás Infante, opposite the Bull Ring.

This ticket is highly 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 :)

Bullfights and Bad Guys, Ronda’s Provocative Past

It’s not often that I take guest posts here at Ronda Today but I quite like this informative article written by Georgina Roake (the Library Lady) after her visit to Ronda.  At the bottom of this page you will find a link to her website and blog. Thanks Georgina! :)

“Ronda is one of Spain’s most popular travel destinations. Home to scores of stunning views and a famous bridge, it’s also known for its flamboyant past. Early inhabitants were a colorful bunch, with a large percentage of bandits, highwaymen, and bullfighters filling out the ranks. Many of these legendary men, and sometimes women, hailed from Serranía de Ronda and surrounding Andalusia. Continue reading Bullfights and Bad Guys, Ronda’s Provocative Past
