Where to Park in Ronda Spain

Where to park in Ronda Spain? Well, Ronda can sometimes be a difficult little city to drive around and find parking for the uninitiated, especially if you’ are driving a large  motor home or towing a caravan don’t even think about entering the city centre!

Instead park in one of the outlying streets and then walk into the centre. There is also a very good motor home parking area on the outskirts of town (if you don’t want to leave your home on the side of the road.) Website in English here.

Most hotels have their own parking and if not at the very least a temporary parking bay so that you can unload any luggage and the staff will then direct you to the nearest parking. Ask your hotel for information on parking during your stay.

Beware narrow streets!

Streets in Ronda are quite narrow, most are one way, and in the older part of town corners and bends can be quite tortuous, of course this is one of the “City of Dreams” main attractions but can be a nightmare when driving a hire car.

The city, is however, blessed with being small and almost everything is within walking distance of the outskirts of town. La Ciudad, the old Moorish town of Ronda, is becoming a car free zone in many places and what parking there is will often be taken by residents.

Unless you’re in a rush our advice is to park outside the centre, the walk is only a few minutes, and regardless of which direction you’ve come from the best parking is always free, and is almost all in the commercial area between the centre and the poligono industrial. (industrial estate.) Look for signs directing you to “Poligono El Fuerte”

Free and paid parking in Ronda.

Parking spaces either with white painted  white lines are usually  free parking.

Parking spaces  with blue lines usually means it is paid parking with a time limit. Look for or ask someone where the meter is.

Parking spaces with a yellow zig zag line means that there is some kind of restriction to parking there. It could be;

  •  A hotel entrance with a 15 minute limit for checking in.
  • A taxi parking area.
  • A short term parking  area In front of a chemists shop.
  • A short term parking area in front of a supermarket.

Look for the sigh to explain what the restrictions are or ask someone passing by if you can park safely. Remember that this type of parking could be a free or paid for area. If you don’t follow the rules you WILL be towed away!

Parking Restrictions

Where NOT to park in Ronda Spain? In some places you may see a free space with a yellow line around it, this is most likely a commercial dropping point or private park and your vehicle will be towed away! Similarly, never park in front of a garage entrance that has a yellow line painted on the road surface and a no parking sign attached to the door. Vehicles that are illegally parked in Ronda are being towed with more frequency than they ever used to be. The fee for retrieving your car ranges from 70€ to 150€.

My favorite place to park in Ronda is the train station. Just follow the road signs marked “RENFE”. It’s then just 10 minutes walk down the main pedestrian shopping street to the main monuments of Ronda
