Ronda is a town in the province of Malaga and stands on a rocky plateau of volcanic origin. The location is one of the main attractions because it is divided by a canyon, known as the Tajo de Ronda, which runs through the river Guadalevín and whose distance is saved by the New Bridge.
The fact that the main part of historic Ronda is found in the Cliff along with the many monuments and museums that it possess, has made Ronda a remarkable resort.
Ronda is a Roman city (third century BC), and the Visigoths gave continuity until the arrival of the Muslims. The wall are still Arab gates including the Almocabar, the Minaret of San Sebastian, the Arab Bathsand the mine catchment, located within the Casa-Palacio del Rey Moro, and by the stairs you can be lowered to the bottom of the Tajo de Ronda.
Around when the Islamic period ended in 1485 and after a long siege, King Ferdinand managed to take the city. Under this new mandate, the city began to spread and the former Arab core became known as “The City.”
In the eighteenth century Ronda there were many important buildings, among which highlight the Puente Nuevo, which has become the symbol of city, and the Plaza de Toros, one of the oldest in the world.
In 1918 a celebration was held in Ronda called the Ronda Assembly, which made the making the current design of the flag and coat of Andalusia, as well as the Anthem.
