After having been the home of many civilizations and the scenario of numerous battles throughout the history of Andalusia, old Ronda rests quietly nowadays surrounded by mountain ranges and fertile valleys.
At a height of 740 meters above the sea level and only 40 kilometers away from the Mediterranean, it’s one of the most romantic towns in Andalusia. Its unique location on the edge of a dramatic gorge has served as a natural defense for its past settlers. Today it offers stunning peaceful views of the surrounding nature.
The Muslims stayed in Ronda for more than seven centuries. This period left a very noticeable footprint in the town’s architecture and urban planning.
The oldest quarters of the city remain inside the city walls that were built in the 13th century. Their cosy and narrow streets hide the most charming little squares and corners. It’s in these little alleyways where we can also find amazing palaces of Muslim origin treasuring magical patios and beautiful gardens…
This tour will take us to enjoy the charm of Moorish Ronda. We will explore the beauty of the old town, stopping to see the gorgeous interiors of a former noble residence. We will also visit the arab baths which are incredibly well preserved. Entering in the former atmospheric hot, warm and cold rooms will allow us to recreate how they worked and how important they were to purify the bodies and souls of the muslims that populated the city before the Christian reconquest in the 15th century.
We will have lunch in a family run local restaurant and after some final exploration of the lower part of Ronda, we will drive back.
