A great day. There was lots to see and the weather finally started to warm up. After another early start it was into the Trafalgar coach and off to La Alhambra, a Moorish settlement that was built in the 1300 - 1400. It was captured by the christians in 1492 (the year that the Moors were driven out of Spain and also the year when Columbus …

It closed in 2000 after a ...
I'm not too sure what to expect from Ronda. The guide book isn't very explicit but I do know that there is a magnificent bridge spanning the gorge. We decide after a drive through that wild camping isn't going to be an option, so we elect to treat ourselves to a couple of nights at the campsite a kilometre out of town.
