Top 15 things to do in Ronda

1. El Tajo de Ronda

The town of Ronda seems impossibly perched atop El Tajo de Ronda, a 130 m (427 ft) canyon yielding views at once spectacular and a little bit frightening. Completed in 1793, the Puente Nuevo spans the gorge, its old age lending it splendor, while making the prospect of crossing slightly unnerving at the same time. If you’re up for a hike, walk the path from town down into the gorge and pass under this bridge, the tallest of three. Stop in the bridge’s small museum, detailing its history and that of the town.

2. Puente Nuevo

Puente Nuevo is the newest and largest of three bridges that span the 120-m (390-ft) chasm that carries the Guadalevín River and divides the city of Ronda. For views of the 18th-century bridge itself, head to the Plaza Maria Auxiliadora. To learn more about how the bridge was built and why its chamber was used as a prison, go to the visitors’ center. Take in the views of the surrounding natural landscape, but be very careful near the edge.

5. Baños Arabes

Wander through the remains, passageways, and the underground chambers of Baños Arabes, the best conserved thermal baths from the Moorish times on the Iberian Peninsula. Tucked in at the old Arab quarter of the town, these 13th-century baths were located at the main entrance to the medina next to a mosque, so that the devotees could stop for ritual ablution before praying. The interior remains lit thanks to numerous star-shaped skylights. Take a few minutes to watch a short video and learn more about the layout and function of the baths. Note that this attraction is situated at the bottom of the gorge, so be prepared to take a steep hike back up to the main square.

Descend into the basement to experience the truly unique part of the museum--the exhibition of witchcraft and the Spanish Inquisition's sinister torture devices, including a stretching rack with a display mannequins. Gaze at immitation dragons, life-sized mermaids, and werewolf taxidermy, part fo the monstrous experience.

9. Casa Del Rey Moro

Although Casa Del Rey Moro claims to have once been the home of a Moorish king, in reality the house wasn't built until the 18th century, and the "Moorish" garden wasn't installed until 1912. However, the water mine (steps leading to a well) is a relic dating back to the Moorish period. The entry to the well is in the gardens. The steps get slippery and narrow in places, so use caution when descending into the rooms below. When in the well, or the "Room of Secrets," stand against one wall and ask a fellow guest to stand against the opposite wall, then ask another to stand in the center of the room. Whisper a secret message while you are standing against the wall, then listen to the response from the person opposite you. You'll hear each other, but the guest in the center of the room won't hear a thing.
