Ronda is one of the oldest cities of Spain
According to archaeological findings, Ronda belongs to the even earlier to the Neolithic era. Proof of this are the paintings found in the Cueva de la Pileta, one of the best paintings of the Paleolithic era in all Andalusia.
During the recent prehistory have been found a lot of human settlement, whose remains can still be admired today in the megalithic necropolis: Dolmen de El Chopo y Encinas Borrachas among others.

The reason for being well known, arrives with the Nazari Kingdom of Granada, because of its closeness to the territories conquered by the Catholics coming from Castilla. That leads to the city of Ronda, as well to its region, to be a very important border zone.
After the conquest of the city by the Catholic Monarchs(1485) deep economic and cultural changes happened, which can be still seen at the structure of the city: streets made broader, etc.
