Tour Ronda & the White Villages of Spain on a day tour

Our friendly and professional local guide transports you to Ronda, one of the oldest towns in Spain with its origins in Prehistory. We start our tour strolling through the 19th-century gardens in Alameda del Tajo, from where the views are simply breathtaking.

See the famous Plaza de Toros de Ronda, unique in the world and recognized as one of the oldest and most monumental bullrings made of stone. After learning firsthand about everything behind the stage, you have the chance to take photos from the center of the bullring.

But this is not all; you also discover the real symbol of the city, the New Bridge that connects Ronda’s old and new districts, from where you can enjoy the great view of the Tajo de Ronda, over 100 meters deep. Visit the most significant monuments of Ronda, such as the famous and beautiful San Juan Bosco House, a modernist palace with a colonial style and inclusion of Nasridian decoration, whose views of the valley are simply stunning.

The tour also includes the Old Bridge, Felipe V Gate Bridge, and San Miguel, landscapes of extraordinary beauty, and the Church of Santa Maria, built on the old mosque and located in the historic center of the city. In Santa Maria, admire the Mudejar Tower and the flirtatious Casita de la Torre, a blend of Christian, Arab, late gothic and renaissance characteristics, the most representative building of religious architecture in Ronda.

You finish by learning 6000 years of history in 12 thematic halls through your senses in the Museum of the Wine of Ronda, where you enjoy a guided tour of the Sangre de Ronda Wineries with a tasting of local wines.

Once in Ronda, visiting the Pueblos Blancos or White Villages is a must before we return to Seville. The origin of this name lies in the custom popular among the local inhabitants of whitewashing the outside of their houses and decorating them with brightly-colored potted flowers, which combined with the golden sun, the brown mountain peaks, the green hilltops, and the blue skies, create a veritable explosion of color.

The area is home to the natural park of Sierra de Grazalema, the first natural park in Andalusia, one of Spain’s most ecologically outstanding areas with its highly-varied flora and fauna. The park is famous for its spectacularly rugged limestone landscape of cliffs, gullies, caves, and gorges. Discover something new every step of the way in this haven of spectacular scenery and tiny nooks brimming with color.
