Ronda & Setenil de Las Bodegas

Ronda & the Town under a Rock - The Classic Andalucia Tour

Ronda Day Trip

The Classic Marbella Escape Tour

Ronda, the city of dreams, is the classic day trip from the Costa del Sol and deservedly so. Perched dramatically atop a rocky escarpment, its two sides are divided by the deep and narrow El Tajo gorge, joined by the Puente Nuevo and the whole city commands breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside.

This enchanting and historic city has attracted tourists, artists, poets and writers for centuries. Ronda is a city with a thousand views, a thousand stories and thousands of years of history. Its combination of natural beauty, being surrounded by the sierras & mountains, its charming labyrinth of streets, its palaces, grand mansions, churches and convents makes a day trip to Ronda a day you’ll never forget.

Setenil de las Bodegas Tour

Visit the Unique Town Under the Rock

Setenil de Las Bodegas, unique amongst Andalucía’s myriad Pueblo Blancos, is a fascinating and above all unique place to visit. This small town of approx. 3000 inhabitants follows the meanderings of the Rio Trejo and its narrow and steep streets tumble down the sides of the valley.

However its defining and famous feature is of course its streets and cave houses set directly into the cliffs carved by the river. Originally used as bodegas (hence the name Setenil de Las Bodegas,) many of these caves have a simple façade on the front and inside the bare rock is exposed.

Surrounded by a fertile plain, the town is also justly famous for its delicious local products. Ranging from meats, hams and sausages to cheeses, including the local specialty – Payoyo – and from craft beer to wine, as well course as dozens of varieties of locally produced olive oil, honey and other traditional products.

Setenil da Las Bodegas is a true Marbella Escape, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the Costa del Sol and is a special and unique start to our Ronda tour.
