Ronda and the White Hill Towns

 Ronda, with a population of 35,000, is one of the largest of the white hill towns, obviously named for the color of most of their structures and their positions atop peaks in the Sierras. Ronda provides dramatic views along its spectacular gorge.

             The 'New Bridge' was erected between 1751-1793 and spans the 360 foot deep ravine.


       On our way to Ronda, we passed through the charming hill towns of Zahara and Grazalema.

Bullfighting remains very popular in the region. Ronda has the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain.
