Tour description provided by Viator

Discover the beautiful mountainous region of Ronda on a relaxing day trip from Costa del Sol. See the main landmarks of the town of Ronda, including the Plaza de Toros bullring and its museum. With your guide, visit the Plaza de España, Ronda's main square, and the Church of the Holy Spirit. Admire views of the breathtaking background scenery created by El Tajo gorge, which splits the town into old and new districts, and see Puente Nuevo, the bridge that connects the two. Finish with a guided tour of a local winery and enjoy a sample of local Spanish wine.

Meet your local guide in a centrally located pick up points in Costa del Sol and relax on a comfortable air-conditioned coach on the drive to Ronda. Take in views of the Andalusian countryside on the way, as the scenery changes from coastal to mountainous.

When you arrive in Ronda, discover the picturesque town that spans over the plunging El Tajo River gorge. See the impressive Puente Nuevo, an 18th-century bridge which connects Ronda's old and new districts. As your guide explains interesting details about Ronda and its surroundings, visit the Plaza de España, the town’s main square, then discover the Church of St Mary the Elder and the 15th-century Church of the Holy Spirit.

Continue to the Plaza de Toros, Spain's oldest bullring that has staged very important events in bullfighting history. Visit the bullring's own museum to learn more about bullfighting from the collection of memorabilia, including photos of famous bullfighting fans, such as Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles.

Next, head to the wine cellar Bodegas La Sangre de Ronda to enjoy a guided tour of the winery. As you wander around the cellar, learn about Spanish wines and sample a local wine.

After your wine tasting, have free time in Ronda to explore more on our own and enjoy a Andalusian tapas at a local restaurant (own expense), before you head back to Costa del Sol.
