Take a private day trip to the town of Ronda. Situated in a mountainous region west of Malaga, Ronda has many highlights to see, including the Plaza de Toros (one of the oldest bullrings in Spain), the Church of the Holy Spirit and the town square. Your private guide will give you interesting background information as you explore the city, and then you can satisfy the thirst you worked up with a wine tasting.
The picturesque town of Ronda spans the plunging river gorge known as El Tajo, crossed by the impressive 18th-century Puente Nuevo (New Bridge, built in the late 1700s). On this private day trip from Malaga, you’ll visit the town square, known as Plaza de Espana, and the Church of the Holy Spirit, built in 1485. Your local guide will also show you around the grounds of the Church of Santa Maria la Mayor.
You will then head to the Plaza de Toros, one of the oldest bullrings in Spain (second only to the bullring in Seville), which has staged some of the most important events in bullfighting history. Be impressed by this massive arena, which was built in the 18th century.
You will have free time to explore Ronda on your own, but don’t worry about getting lost in the winding alleyways – your private guide will give you advice on where to go and answer all your questions.
After all this sightseeing, you will be thirsty! End your tour with a one-hour wine tasting, where you will have the opportunity to try two red (Cabernet Saubinot and Tempranillo), two white wines (Pedro Ximenez and Salema) and also some regional sherrys, e.g.Jerez Seco, Cherry Malaga, Amontillado and Palo Cortado.
This private tour of Malaga is hosted by a professional guide. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, who will then prepare for your private tour.
