A brief stay in Ronda

Puente Nuevo in Ronda

Now who wouldn't want to visit a place like this?! You are looking up at Ronda's famous Puente Nuevo - New Bridge. It's hardly new given that building work commenced in 1751, but it must be compared with both the Puente Viejo (Old Bridge) constructed by the Arabs and the Puente Romano (Roman Bridge) which both predate it. All three bridges are quite spectacular in their own ways, but it's the Puente Nuevo that gets most attention, overlooking as it does a vast canyon known as the Tajo.

Ronda

Visitors to Andalusia rarely miss out on a stop in Ronda and it's easy to see why. This week I enjoyed an overnight stay in what is surely Ronda's quirkiest hotel, the Enfrente Arte:

Quirky on the inside it may be; on the outside it's classically Andalusian:

An excellent hotel, and I highly recommend it. What about eating in Ronda? If tapas are your thing then look no further than Tragatapas in the town centre:

Beautifully presented food by staff who love what they do. This is one of those places where you'll eat well but not feel full afterwards. Perfecto.

Until next time readers,
