Ronda is a white city, meaning the country of Spain is known for all white villages against the cliffs, mountains and the sea. Ronda is known to be one of the oldest cities to house the oldest and largest bull fighting rings within the country. I will give you a tease, borrowed from the guidebook...
"Ronda is split in half by a gaping river gorge (Guadalvin River ) that drops sheer for 130 metres on three sides. Still more spectacular the gorge is spanned by a stupendous 18th century arched bridge (Puente Nuevo) while tall white washed houses lean perilously from its precipitous edges."
Tony has directed to me that there are three different ways to get here, he has chosen one of the three, en route, curving, curving, curving, curving, but a more direct route home!
A side note: Ernest Hemingway in "For Whom The Bell Tolls" recorded how prisoners were thrown from the bridge to their deaths!
There is so much to see outside of the big cities...We are going to a Paradores for lunch which is like an Agriturismo in Italy. More to come...
