So, I was asked to create the VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide for Ronda.
For quite a few years now, the A4 printable guide has been selling steadily directly from Ronda Today and I have received many hundreds of emails from visitors, who have discovered the very best of a visit to Ronda, using the indepth information made up from the top 20 articles published here at Ronda Today.
But what better way to improve the guide? An audio guide of course!
The VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide for Ronda
Listening to me along the way (and also some captivating guitar music from the amazing Paco Seco), you’ll pass breathtaking lookout points including the Mirador de Ronda and the Mirador de Aldehuela.
You can also get the guide in German and Spanish languages

Discover Ronda at your own pace
- No queues or following big groups of people.
- With turn by turn directions you can’t get lost or miss any of the important sights.
- Start and stop whenever you want.
- GPS locations. Audio starts automatically as you approach interesting places and monuments.
- The VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide for Ronda is also ideal if you have limited time in Ronda but want to see as much as possible.
As we leave the new town behind us and enter the old, past the Mondragón Palace and museum we’ll visit Ronda’s former defensive border at the Puerta de Almocábar, and quake in the boots of history’s soldiers as you imagine approaching armies.
From there we’ll follow the old walls to the Arab Baths and the Puente Viejo bridge, before making our way back over Puente Nuevo. The tour ends in front of the Plaza de Toros, the Bullring of the Royal Cavalry of Ronda.
I’ll also provide answers to some intriguing questions like:
- What did Blas infante, the father of Spanish nationalism, do in Ronda?
- Who are the Goyesca ladies?
- Why is one particular Italian priest famous around here?
- Who built the Puente Nuevo?
- Did Queen Isabella really visit Ronda?
- When did the Christian conquerors arrive?
- How important is bullfighting in Andalucia?
Creating the VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide for Ronda from the content here at Ronda Today has been a real pleasure and I hope that you enjoy walking the tour as much I did making it.

A bit about VoiceMap
VoiceMap’s walking tour app gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace. You can start the walks at any time and stop whenever and wherever you like, for as long as you like. You don’t even need to hit pause. The app uses your GPS location to play audio automatically, at exactly the right time and place, and when you start moving again, playback will too. It also gives you directions, making it much easier to put your phone away and immerse yourself in your surroundings, not the screen.
You can download audio tours with a single tap before you leave your WiFi zone. They come with offline maps, and you don’t have to pay for data while you’re out exploring.

2 thoughts on “The VoiceMap GPS Audio Guide for Ronda”
I’ve lived in the Ronda area for 14 years and know the City of Dreams like the back of my hand, so I wasn’t expecting too much from this audio guide. How wrong could I be?
Although I was familiar with every location included on this tour, I learned loads that I didn’t know from this very thoroughly researched guide by Clive Muir, of the website Ronda Today. In particular, the historical aspects.
Clive’s voice is easy on the ear and the accompanying music by local professional guitarist Paco Seco made for a very pleasant couple of hours.
We broke our journey in the Barrio San Francisco, where we had an excellent breakfast at Bar Sánchez by the Almocabar Gate.
I was accompanied on the tour by friends Brenda and Jeremy White, who own property locally and have been coming to the Serrania de Ronda regularly for over 20 years. Like me, they thought they knew all there was to know. They were also wrong.
At the end of the tour, we gratefully sank a refreshing beer in Bar El Rincón de la Manzanilla on Calle Virgen de Los Remedios and discussed the audio tour we had just taken.
“I enjoyed the tour very much,” said Brenda, “although I felt some of the historical information was a bit long-winded.”
“I disagree entirely,” responded Jeremy. “I found the history sections fascinating and I learned a lot.”
We all agreed that we had spent a delightful morning and had enjoyed the whole experience immensely. Strangers to Ronda would find this audio guide fascinating, as well as informative, we felt.
