"Walls of Ronda" Ronda Favorite Tip by sandysmith
Ronda General: 87 reviews and 149 photos
Favorite thing: The Muralles , the extensive walls of Ronda, were built by the Moorish rulers in the 13th century. It originally enveloped the entire town, must have been very secure. Today, with the outer walls fallen (especially to the south, near the Arab baths), only two paths, two gates and one bridge offer routes out of the fortress city. The most impressive section, the westerly puerta del Almocábar, was only reconstructed in its original form in the late 20th century. Parts of the wall are still being rebuilt in the 21st century. We made an interesting detour from the part near the Arab bath around into the main town again. With the spring flowers it was a very pleasant walk and gave good views of the countryside and views back over Ronda's new town.
