Exploring One Of Spains Most Gorgeous Cities

How many of you have hear of Ronda?

After years of exploring I would found myself in rural Spain after a few weeks in France and the Netherlands. It was only a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of exploring Ronda, and like most people who visit the small town, I was in love. Think Game Of Thrones. The buildings were whitewashed and the streets cobblestone. The wine was home made and the bridge was something of a wonder. See for yourself!

I couldn’t believe the bridge when we first saw it. It was bigger than I imagined and even more impressive. We spent 3 days exploring the town, grabbing tapas and drinking Ronda wine. On our second day we hiked down to the bottom of the bridge and were lucky enough to have the space all to ourselves. We went early in the morning so if you want a little alone time with the bridge I recommend getting up a little earlier than normal and heading down.

The walk itself isn’t hard. The only daunting thing about it is it’s a small walking path with a sheer drop to your left so naturally I hugged close to the wall with my fear of heights. And falling. The walk isn’t too long and definitely worth it to see the beautiful view from the bottom.

The next day we had the most amazing churros ever! They were the best I had in Spain so far and were so fresh. Instead of a little dipper stick this one was coiled in a circle and was freshly deep fried. So amazing and delicious, much to my waistlines dismay haha. I went back and ordered another one after I said “no more bad food for Shelby.” I also had mollette bread and you guys.. that was the best bread I have ever eaten. I’m not even joking it was this massive white bun/bread served with two kinds of jam, tomato puree (not a fan) and butter. There are times in life where you just have to forget about carbs and the diet and just go for it because I still crave those churros and mollette buns in the morning. Go to Cafe Crepperia (or La Esquina. Not positive what the name is because it doesn’t exist on Google so find the Burger King on Calle Sevilla and it’s on that street) and try it for yourself!

I didn’t see one grocery store in Ronda, but we did find one on our last day (always the last day that we find the cheaper alternatives to eating out) we found a place called La Tienda which literally translates to “the store.” Here you can buy boxed wine for 1 Euro and it tastes great and you can get some healthy fruit, oatmeal, almond milk and everything else you have been missing in your nutrients bucket.


On our last day we went for another hike this time walking away from the bridge where we chilled on the grass and enjoyed the sun with a donkey sitting beside us. It was a perfect end to a perfect trip. I could’t have asked for a better time in Ronda and it was easily enjoyed at a slow pace over the 3 days!

Saying goodbye to Ronda tomorrow 🚂
