Woke up early to catch our 8am train to Ronda. By the time we got to Ronda, it was 11am, too early to check into our Airbnb. Luckily, we were able to store both our luggage at Hotel Andalusia located right across the train station for 5€ before heading into town. Ronda is small. There is one train arriving daily, and 2 departing (7am and 7pm). One can technically stop by Ronda, store the luggage at Hotel Andalusia, and explore the town for a few hours while en route between the bigger cities like Sevilla, Granada, and Malaga. We decided to stay a night to enjoy the town.
Most come to Ronda for the Puente Nuevo that spans across the El Tajo gorge and its bullring, as it is the birthplace of modern day bullfighting. Instead of riding on horseback in medieval times, fighters face the bull on foot.
Satisfied with having seen all 3 bridges, we were ready for lunch.
Joe had previously spotted hot chocolate and churros in the new town, so we decided to skip dessert at the restaurant and head over for some hot chocolate on a fall day.
Finally, we made our way back to Hotel Andalusia to pick up our luggage as it was time to check in.
