The Spanish town of Ronda lies in the Malaga province, 100 km Northwest of the city of Malaga, and just 1.5 hours drive from Gibraltar by car hire. Drive through scenic town, set in a deep gorge, and enjoy the views all around of interesting rock formations, cliffs, and an impressive bridge. Plan a day trip to Ronda with a cheap car rental from Gibraltar Airport.
Ronda's el Tajo gorge is spanned by a marvelously constructed, very large bridge. The Puente Nuevo bridge is a site you won't be able to miss during your visit to Ronda by Gibraltar car hire. From top to bottom it stands roughly 100 meters, comparable to a 30 story building. The bridge even houses a small museum.
Take time to visit one of Spain's oldest and most revered bull fighting rings. The Plaza de Toros in Ronda is still host to entertainment, though it is not the central attraction for the public that it once was. You can visit its small museum and learn about its fascinating history.
Enjoy a bit of shopping in the unique shops Ronda has to offer with your car rental from Gibraltar. Calle la Bola is the main street where locals and tourists come to stroll and shop. Its name, "la Bola" comes from the Spanish word for "ball" and refers to a local legend of a great snowfall when the citizens built a giant snowball to roll down slope of this street.
Ronda is also features an old city with a lovely old Spanish church, a beautiful palacio, gardens, nice hiking down into the gorge, and local wineries. Stay in one of Ronda's comfortable and affordable hotels, or tour the town on a day trip from Gibraltar, Malaga, or the Costa del Sol.
