Ronda and White Villages excursion from Seville

On this day excursion to Ronda and the white villages, discover some of the most interesting places in all of Andalucia, where the beauty of the landscape is combined with the history of its monuments.

Our first stop will be in the Sierra de Grazalema in order to get to know Zahara de la Sierra, one of the most beautiful white villages in Andalucia. In this town, we will walk along its white streets and photograph its spectacular scenery.

We will begin our tour through Ronda by arriving at the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge), where we will enjoy some spectacular views of the Ronda Mountains.

Our next stop will be in the stately home of San Juan Bosco, founder of the Salesiana Congregation, from whose lookout we can contemplate the city’s most emblematic monument, the New Bridge. Built at the end of the 18th century, the impressive bridge unites the city’s old and new districts, and hangs 100 metres over the Guadalevin River.

We will then walk through the narrow and white streets, heading toward the Church of Saint Mary of Immaculate Conception. In this church, which was built over an old mosque, mixes Renaissance, late Gothic and pilaster styles. Built between the 16th an 18th century, the church’s interior features numerous paintings, its old, tall altar (in a Baroque style with gold leaf), and the fresco of Saint Christopher, patron of the city.
