Ronda Gorge
Click on the pic to go back to Spain story

The drive up to Ronda was fantastic and the town itself is pretty. Best of all are the views - the spectacular gorge (El Tajo), mountains, interesting old town with buildings dating from the 13th century and a stunning 18th Century arched bridge, Moorish architecture, pretty little squares and cafés, tall whitewashed houses and beautiful gardens to name but a few attractions.

There is also beautiful (if a little strenuous) walking to be had. We set off for a wee walk down the side of the gorge conveniently forgetting that we had to walk back up again (the climb was practically vertical!). Fortunately, along came a nice man called Antonio in his battered Jalopy and he was kind enough to give us a lift back up the hill. So we had a drink with him and fun trying to communicate with each other in Spanish (very bad Spanish in our case but we somehow managed to get by).
