Andalusia, the jewel of southern Spain, is home to many treasures worth discovering. Two of them are the charming town of Ronda and the famous Caminito del Rey. In this post, we will take you on an exciting journey through these two destinations, showing you their charm and why they are considered unique in Andalusia.
We begin our journey in the city of Ronda, located at the top of a deep gorge known as El Tajo. Ronda is one of the oldest cities in Spain and captivates visitors with its rich history and beautiful scenery.
One of Ronda’s main attractions is the impressive Puente Nuevo (New Bridge), a structure that connects the two sides of the city. From here, you can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, including the Guadalevín river flowing through the gorge. In addition to the Puente Nuevo, Ronda is home to other emblematic sites such as the Plaza de Toros, one of the oldest bullrings in Spain, and Casa Don Bosco, a palace with lush gardens.
Strolling through the cobbled streets of Ronda is like travelling back in time. Discover historic churches, beautiful squares and charming corners. The city is also known for its gastronomy, where you can enjoy traditional dishes and regional wines.
Caminito del Rey
After exploring the wonderful city of Ronda, it’s time to embark on a thrilling adventure on the Caminito del Rey. Located in the Gaitanes Gorge, near the village of Ardales, this trail has earned a legendary reputation for its fascinating history and breathtaking views.
The route starts in the village of Ardales and runs for approximately 7.7 kilometres. You will walk on footbridges suspended on the cliffs, cross deep gorges and cross the famous suspension bridge. Each step will take you through stunning scenery and offer breathtaking panoramic views. The thrill of walking along this steep, narrow path, hanging over 100 metres above the river, is truly unparalleled.
The Caminito del Rey is a unique experience that combines adrenaline with natural beauty. You can marvel at the majesty of the cliffs, the lush vegetation and the river flowing at your feet.
Both Ronda and the Caminito del Rey are true treasures of Andalusia and offer unforgettable experiences to those who visit them. Starting in the charming town of Ronda, where you can immerse yourself in its history, enjoy its architectural beauty and savour its delicious gastronomy, and then moving on to the adventure of the Caminito del Rey, you can experience the best of both worlds on your visit to Andalusia.
