The mountaintop city of Ronda and the white village of Setenil de las Bodegas are two of Andalusia’s most enchanting destinations, and this private full-day tour from Cádiz visits both in one day. Discover the bullfighting heritage of Ronda and marvel at its spectacular gorge, then explore the caves and castle of picturesque Setenil de las Bodegas.

What to expect?

  • Visit Ronda, an Asset of Cultural Interest, split by Tajo del Ronda, a chasm more than 500 feet (150 meters) deep. Celts, Phoenicians, Romans, and Arabs inhabited the area before its reconquest by the Catholic monarch. See the old town’s Arabic influences and medieval layout south of the Guadalevin River. North of the riverbed you will find the city’s more modern area, developed starting in the 16th century. Several bridges connect the two halves of the city, one of the most fascinating stops on the Sun Coast’s road of the white villages in Serrania de Ronda.

  • One of Spain’s oldest cities, Ronda originated in the Neolithic age, according to archeological findings. Proof of human presence can be found in cave paintings, most importantly at Pileta’s Cave, one of the most notable examples of Paleolithic cave paintings in Andalusia. Ronda’s fame comes from its proximity to the territories conquered by the Catholics of Castilla during the Nazari Kingdom of Granada. After the conquest of the city by the Catholic Monarchs in 1485, the city experienced deep cultural and economic changes, some of which can be observed today in structures such as open squares as broad streets.

  • Setenil’s distinctive urban beauty makes it one of the Sierra de Cádiz’s main tourist destinations. Houses sit below, on top, and even inside the rocks, creating different street levels with charming nooks and corners, such as those on Calle de las Cuevas de la Sombra and Calle de las Cuevas del Sol. See a present-day village that originated in medieval times, and visits the area known as Setenil, which stands on the ancient Almohad settlement. Marvel at the 14th- to 15th-century medieval castle and fortress overlooking the village.
