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”.

The “Tourist Ticket” (Bono Turístico in Spanish.)

The new Tourist Voucher “Bono 8 Monumentos” has now replaced the old Bono Turístico.

This one price ticket allows you access to some of the “on the list” places to visit in Ronda. You can buy it at the main Ronda tourist office (by the bullring)

  • The interpretation centre of the new bridge (Puente Nuevo)
  • the Palacio de Mondragón (The Museum of Ronda)
  • The Arab baths
  • Unicaja Joaquín Peinado Museum , in memory of the work of the Ronda painter Joaquín Peinado
  • Casa del Gigante. One of the few examples of Nasrid culture in the province of Malaga
  • The Lara Museum , where you can enjoy different works of art and antiques from the private collection of Juan Antonio Lara
  • Casa Don Bosco , a modernist style mansion built at the beginning of the 20th century by Santiago Sanguinetti, where its beautiful Nasrid tiles, 19th century tapestries and its beautiful patio stand out.

The Plaza de Toros (bullring) in Ronda occupies a very special place in modern Spanish culture and history as the home of the Rondeño style of bullfighting and also of the Real Maestranza De Caballería De Ronda. The bullring was built entirely of stone in the 18th century, during the golden years of Pedro Romero’s reign as a champion bullfighter.

Be sure to watch the animated short presentation (5 minutes) about the history of Ronda’s Arab Baths when you get here. The video presentation describes the water tower as a Noria (the modern Spanish word derived from Arabic), however the water pump in Ronda was a chain pump and is more correctly known even today as a Saqiya.
