Steeped in dark myths and bullfighting folklore, whilst boasting one of the most extraordinary locations in Spain, it is small wonder that Ronda has become Andalusia’s third most visited town. With its world-famous New Bridge and bullring, as well as the hidden corners of the gorge on top of which it perches, Ronda will not disappoint.
From the Torrecilla peak, at an altitude of more than 1900 m, in the heart of the Sierra de las Nieves, the hiker feels that Andalusia extends at his feet. The summit of Malaga is a privileged viewpoint that gives a lesson in geography. Surrounded by pine toads, the mountain is like a totem visible from all angles. The summit rises in the center of the Natural Park of the Sierra de las Nieves, one of the most valuable ecosystems of the southern peninsula, at whose feet rests a set of natural regions that make up the Serranía de Ronda.
There was a time when the myth of romantic Spain nested here. Travellers from the mid-nineteenth century, imbued with orientalism, visited Granada and Cordoba, and left for the last stages of their journey the city of Ronda, in Malaga, lying on a sharp pit, in the middle of a scene of severe gorges where the waters of the Guadalevín rush, which the Arabs called with the sweet name of river of milk. Its ponytail, the white waterfall that draws its fall to the cliff pit, splits the city in two.
