Ronda town can seem quite imposing with the large looming mountains surrounding it and location vacances espagne
Its unique location on the sierra’s isolated ridge gives the town a lot
of drama with the El Tajo river gorge splitting it. Nevertheless, the
river gorge is itself a pure natural spectacle with a 130m straight drop
on three of its sides. The river gorge sports an impressive 18th
century bridge which is beautifully arched. It is known as the Puente
Nuevo. It looks dangerously majestic as many tall whitewashed houses
stilt precariously out of its precipitous ledges.Attractions
attractions may be very simple but many tourists find them fulfilling.
The natural landscape forms much of the breath-taking offering at Ronda
via a stroll around the village along the infamous Río Guadalévin.
the much beaten donkey tracks seem tedious but they lead through rich
and lush green valleys which bring a refreshing feeling to its
strollers. Bird lovers would be satisfied with the many species that can
be found around Ronda with a keen eye on the lesser kestrels which tend
to nest at the mountain cliffs.
Nature lovers will also love
Alameda Park which showcases a lot of flora and fauna species. There are
opportunities to sight some crag martins at the right spots.
character of the town itself forms another interesting discovery with
its unique language, culture and traditions that will fascinate you.Ronda Town
comprises three sections: the northwest contemporary Mercadillo
quarter, the ancient Moorish section called Ciudad and the San Francisco
suburb further south.
It is the Moorish Ciudad that is most
interesting at Ronda where much of its Moorish culture and tradition is
practiced today. There are many quaint and unique Moorish style houses
with a scattering of fine mansions from the Renaissance era. The layout
is a real maze which itself is an interesting discovery as you wander
your way around randomly until you come back out to the bridge and main
street, the Calle Santo Domingo.
Nearby you will find an 18th
century Moorish mansion known as Rey Moro castle with its gardens opened
for public viewing. An interesting feature of this mansion is its
remarkable Mina or underground stairway which leads down to the river in
365 steps. This guaranteed a constant water supply in spite of sieges
although it was cut off by 14th century Christian slaves. If you are
able to look out from its viewing balcony, you will see spectacular
towering rock walls of Tajo some distance away together with its bird
life.About the author :-
