If you want to get to Ronda, we arrived by train from Algeciras then left by bus going to Malaga. I think there are regular bus services from other coastal towns too.
Thanks. Blimey, I can't imagine that after being there on the day I was lol. What time of year did you go? Thanks for the extra info, I forgot about the trains - of course the railtrack is set down a bit into the ground compared to the rest of the city so one doesn't see it as easily when not at the train station itself.

No problem. Yes, the most famous side is what is referred to as 'The City' itself but I actually found the areas on the not-so-famous side of the bridge more interesting. Only my opinion though. Enjoy Ronda when you visit.

We went in late September, the lady who ran the pension we stayed at said that Ronda had a strange microclimate which meant it got much more rain than other parts of the region.

Ye that is possible. If you get wind from the right direction there, being on the edge of a plateau where mountains rise on one side, it probably gets affected a lot by orographic rainfall. That's my guess anyway.

But of course supermarkets remain open all day in Spain do they not? So it makes sense for them to close earlier than other shops that do have breaks for siesta.

Indeed. A lot of the similarities can be seen especially in the churches with the typical white-washed faces and contrasting colours and roof tiles.

No I didn't forget it - we purposefully didn't go in. One, we didn't have enough time and two, it cost and arm and a leg to get in let alone have a guided tour. The outside of the building wasn't anything special either with no distinct entrance - just a big white-walled circle. I have seen nicer bullrings though nothing has topped the one I saw at Plaza de Ventas in Madrid.

I didn't go into the bullring either, but I did eat Rabo de toro at one of the town restaurants, the menu said that it was from a bull killed in the bullring but I don't believe it, there can't be enough bulls killed there to supply all of the local restaurants.

I also remember a very nice tapas bar run by a couple of British women, can't remember the name though.

I would agree with you there, for such a minor marking on the map, it holds a lot of interest and history, especially with the viaduct connecting the two sides of the city.

I'm very lucky to live in England where I can just get to Spain in no time.

Spain is a life-saver for us in England lol.. Its beauty allows us to escape some of the dullness of our own country.

Beautiful pics !

As for bullfighting, it's really a wrecked discussion that has centuries going on and off... So i'm not sure if this thread is the best place to discuss it.
