Ronda, the picturesque town nestled in the hills of the Serranía de Málaga, is a must-visit if you’re looking for a destination that offers culture, history, nature and tranquillity. And, although the image of the city is usually of a place with a warm climate in its spring and summer months, it also offers a unique experience during the cooler months of the year.
Although winter can bring cool temperatures, Ronda is not short on charm and exciting activities to enjoy. Here is a complete guide to what to do in Ronda during the winter season.
Visit the Cueva de la Pileta
With historical remains dating back to some of the oldest periods in Europe, this natural wonder offers a unique experience. Located just a few minutes drive from Ronda, it is perfect for a day exploring the depths of the earth and enjoying the rich local gastronomic tradition.
Enjoy its cave remains thousands of years old, such as the first portable lamp found in the Iberian Peninsula, quite a feat for the time. And delight yourself with its magical cave paintings, where you can see animals such as deer, horses or its famous one-and-a-half-metre-long fish.
Sierra de las Nieves
Winter is coming and… What do we look for most? Snow.
Although snow in Ronda is not always a guarantee, the Sierra de las Nieves, located in the heart of the natural park, is an exciting option. You will have the option to enjoy several routes in the middle of nature and discover the beauty of winter in the Serranía and its surroundings.
Wine Tasting in Ronda
One of the many traditions of the city of Ronda is its rich and full of quality gastronomy. Immerse yourself in the region’s rich winemaking tradition with a wine tasting in one of its 20 wineries with guided tours, where you can explore the art of winemaking, from pruning the vines to bottling. An experience that combines leisure and gastronomy, ideal for lovers of good wine… And to warm you up!
Visit the monuments and places of interest
Visiting the monuments of Ronda is magical whatever the season of the year.
The Puente Nuevo, an architectural marvel, takes on a special beauty in winter, although it is advisable to wrap up warm due to the wind. Immerse yourself in the 14th century by exploring the Palacio de Mondragón, with its fascinating museum of Gothic and Mudejar styles, or learn about the history of the Serranía’s most famous characters in the Bandolero Museum. The Church of Nuestra Señora de la Merced, with its façade dating back to 1585, is a must-see even on cold days, where you can also enjoy the exquisite handmade sweets of the cloistered nuns.
