Pro's

Ronda is a great place to visit it is steeped in history. The majority of the things to do in Ronda are close together. Some of the view's and structures are fantastic, a photographer's paradise. Its an ideal base town for hiking, cycling and for holiday's exploring inner Spain. Ronda is great for a day out getting there by either car, bus or train. The train and bus stations are both in Malaga.

Con's

It's over 100 kilometres from Malaga airport which by car is over one and a half hour drive and two and a half by train from Malaga. To get about the countryside you really need a car. There is not a great deal for kid's to do no children's attractions or theme parks close by. 

Synopsis

Ronda is a great place to visit for a day trip. The building's bridges and scenery are all stunning. It's a must to see but to fill a week or two vacation you will need a car and a plan. It's a 100 kilometre from the nearest beach and not much to do for kid's. But it is a place to really relax.
