Be transported back to the times of Roman gladiators and Moorish kings when you visit Ronda, one of Malaga’s most beautiful and beguiling cities. Ronda is one of Spain’s oldest towns, first settled by the Celts and later inhabited by the Romans and Moors. This pittoreske town was the favorite of artists and writers like Orson Welles, Alexander Dumas and Ernest Hemingway who searched for inspiration in Europe’s most unspoilt destinations.A sense of history is almost tangible here when wandering through the city’s ancient Arab citadels and exceptionally well preserved Roman bath complex. Ronda’s most iconic attraction is the Puenta Nuevo, a 18th-century bridge spanning the plunging 120-metre El Tajo ravine. Prime natural attractions include the Jardines de Cuenca, flanking the bridge and offering excellent views, and the Cat’s Cave – a crystal-clear, picture-perfect rock pool ideal for a refreshing dip on a hot day.
