Malaga - Admire the Picturesque Town of Ronda
Today you will spend a wonderful day outdoors exploring the most spectacular Andalusian countryside and mountains. You will enjoy a very scenic drive through the Grazalema Natural Park and can take great picture shots and admire the most breathtaking viewpoints at the charming white village of Zahara de la Sierra. We leave the best for the last on this superb day trip by taking a guided tour of the picturesque town of Ronda.
After a quick early morning coffee at your hotel in Sevilla, your private driver and tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and will take you on a very scenic drive through the spectacular Grazalema Natural Park to the charming town of Zahara de la Sierra where you will enjoy a lovely Spanish breakfast at a very cozy restaurant with a terrace offering breath-taking views to the lake of Zahara. Zahara de la Sierra is quite simply a place that takes your breath away. It is, without a doubt, one of the most picturesque of all the Pueblos Blancos (white villages) in the Sierra de Grazalema, if not in the whole of Andalucia. The town enjoys an extraordinary setting, sitting at the foot of the Sierra del Jaral, perched on top of a hill, and surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Zahara-el Gastor reservoir. Standing guard above the village are the remains of a Moorish castle that commands views over the surrounding countryside and the white-washed village beneath.
After a short visit to the town, you will be driven to the picturesque town of Ronda where you will have an introductory walking tour including the old town, the cliffs, the new bridge, and the famous bullring in the city center. Ronda is a mountaintop city that sits in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda. Set dramatically above a deep gorge and surrounded by lush river valleys, it is a breathtaking place. The gorge, El Tajo, separates the city's 15th-century new town from its Moorish old town. Puente Nuevo, a stone bridge spanning the gorge, has a lookout offering stunning views and the new town's Plaza de Toros, a legendary 18th-century bullring, is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks.
After the guided tour and before heading to your next destination, you will have some lunch at the Reina Victoria Hotel in Ronda which offers spectacular views of Ronda's gorge and cliffs.
In the afternoon, you will continue on to Malaga. After checking in at the hotel, you will have the rest of the evening free to explore the city at your leisure. Our Zitango Destination Partner provides you with maps, tips, and recommendations for local bars & restaurants.
