Our family travels, Spain

Ronda, Spain

The road to Ronda reminded me of driving on the road to Hana, minus the bull crossing signs and lack of the ocean, bridges and waterfalls. Really it was just the winding road and our GPS kept adding the time on, it felt like we were never going to get there, but we did.

The city of Ronda sits above a step Canyon and is well worth the drive to the beautiful city perched on the side of the El Tajo canyon.

The Puente Nuevo bridge in El Tajo canyon spans across the highest point of the gorge The views from on the bridge are stunning but also from afar.

We love visiting these little towns with so much history and love for their culture.  Ronda has a long-history with bull-fighting and a visit to the Bull-Ring  should be on your list. Bullring of the Royal Cavalry of Ronda is full of information on the history of Bull-fighting in Spain.

The view from above is quite breathtaking. Thankfully, there is fencing along the view areas- it is not a view for one afraid of heights.

The  town is full of charming architecture and orange trees left and right. Ronda has a few museums that are worth a visit if you have time.

And of course, a trip to Spain means chocolate churros;  always a hit with our family.  We’d recommend a stop at the Churrería Alba, the freshly warm churros will not disappoint.

  1. I'm so jealous! I need those oranges. I'm in the process of making orange marmalade and could use some Seville oranges but all I've got is some sale Navels from Raley's. 😦 Yummm! Chocolate Churros. Send some of those my way.

  2. Hey, Jacob, you look like a real cool muscle man in that last shot.Did you guys save me some chocolate churro? I would be afraid a real good rain would make my house landslide into the canyon if I lived there. Do the bulls run free like the deer do here or do the signs mean bull fighting ahead?
