Ronda, are we inside a film set? // šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ Ronda, estamos a viver dentro de um filme?

šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ Located in the AndalucĆ­a region of Spain, Ronda is one of the most ancient cities in Spain. It is surrounded by highlands which gives Ronda such a magic ambience! In fact, we advise you to do at least one of the trips on the way or when leaving Ronda during the day because of the viewsā€¦ oh, the views to the mountains and all the landscape are simply outstanding and spectacular!

Ronda has as its symbol the magnificent ā€œPuente Nuevoā€ over the River GuadalevĆ­n. The bridge, 98 meters high (but the gorge can go down to 120 meters deep!), unifies the ancient, traditional, intimate, full of monuments and testimonies from the past, part of the city with the most modern side. Those testimonies from the past go far back to the Romans, the Moorish and many other folks that passed by.

Considered the cradle of modern bullfighting, it was a place loved by Hemingway and Orson Welles and even further back a preferred spot for the romantic travellers (young upper-class people and artists from the industrialization times looking for authenticity and untouched nature).

šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ Localizada na regiĆ£o da Andaluzia, Ronda Ć© uma das cidades mais antigas de Espanha. Ɖ rodeada por montanhas o que confere a Ronda uma ambiĆŖncia mĆ”gica! Na verdade, aconselhamos-te a fazer pelo menos uma das viagens atĆ©, ou ao sair de Ronda, durante o dia pelas paisagensā€¦ aaah, aquelas paisagens para as montanhas e todas as outras vistas sĆ£o simplesmente excecionais e espetaculares!

Ronda tem como sĆ­mbolo a magnĆ­fica ā€œPuente Nuevoā€ sobre o rio GuadalevĆ­n. Esta ponte tem 98 metros de altura (mas o desfiladeiro pode atingir 120 metros de profundidade!) e une o lado da cidade mais antigo, tradicional, intimista, cheio de monumentos e testemunhos do passado, com o lado mais moderno. E estes testemunhos do passado vĆ£o bem lĆ” atrĆ”s atĆ© aos romanos, Ć”rabes e muitos outros povos que passaram por aqui.

Cidade considerada um dos berƧos da tourada moderna, Ronda foi amada por Hemingway e Orson Welles e, recuando mais no tempo, um local preferido pelos viajantes romĆ¢nticos (jovens de um estrato social alto e artistas da Ć©poca da industrializaĆ§Ć£o que procuravam autenticidade e a natureza intocada).

šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ Puente Nuevo (New bridge) // šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ Puente Nuevo (A Ponte Nova)

šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ This bridge is a magnificent view! As you are at the top of the bridge or looking at it from a distance, you just feel like you are at a movieā€™s scenery. The canyons on both sides, the green on top of the rock, the birds that use the abyss tube for their acrobatics, ā€¦ All of this is such a vision and a fantastic experience! Almost indescribable! The best is just to let your senses go, and enjoy all that the trip can give you. Engrave those sensations in your memory from a wonderful time!

The bridge is a magnificent work of architecture and from its grandiosity, we can understand that its construction was not easy at all. The bridge was officially inaugurated in 1793 and has been also used as an aqueduct to overcome the water scarcity in one of the sides of the city.

If you decide to enter the bridge on a very windy day, as we did, remember that the access to the down part of the bridge can be denied but you will still be charged a full ticket.

šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ Esta ponte Ć© uma visĆ£o magnĆ­fica! Quer estejas no topo da ponte ou a admirĆ”-la com alguma distĆ¢ncia, faz-te sentir que estĆ”s no cenĆ”rio de um filme. As ravinas dos dois lados, o verde no topo da rocha, os pĆ”ssaros que aproveitam o efeito tubo do fosso para as suas acrobacias, ā€¦ Tudo isto Ć© uma imagem magnĆ­fica e uma fantĆ”stica experiĆŖncia! Quase indescritĆ­vel! O melhor Ć© deixares-te levar pelos teus sentidos e aproveitar tudo o que esta viagem te pode dar. Grava essas sensaƧƵes na tua memĆ³ria!

A ponte Ć© um magnĆ­fico trabalho de arquitetura e pela sua grandiosidade podemos perfeitamente entender que a sua construĆ§Ć£o nĆ£o foi, de todo, fĆ”cil. Inaugurada oficialmente em 1793, a ponte foi ainda sendo usada como aqueduto, de modo a ultrapassar a carĆŖncia de Ć”gua de um dos lados da cidade.

Se decidirem visitar a ponte num dia ventoso, tal como nĆ³s, tenham em atenĆ§Ć£o que o acesso Ć  parte inferior da ponte vos pode ser negado, mas, ainda assim, ser-vos-Ć” cobrado a totalidade do bilhete.

šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ Puente Ɓrabe (Moorish bridge) and Puente Viejo (old bridge) // šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ Puente Ɓrabe and Puente Viejo (Ponte Velha)

šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ The Arabe bridge, from Moorish times, had to be reconstructed several times due to the oscillation of the river channel. As a matter of fact, you can see, these days, the river also made some damage on the margins.

The old bridge (ā€œPuente Viejoā€) is from the XVII century. From here you also have wonderful views of the gorge and to the ā€œPuente Nuevoā€. To reach these bridges, you can walk by the old wall of Ronda while looking at the green fields surrounding the city on your way to the Muslim baths.

šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ A Ponte Ɓrabe, que remonta aos tempos de domĆ­nio Ć”rabe em Ronda, teve de ser reconstruĆ­da vĆ”rias vezes devido Ć  oscilaĆ§Ć£o do leito do rio. Na verdade, presentemente, podem ser observados os estragos provocados pelo rio nas suas margens.

A Ponte Velha (ā€œPuente Viejoā€) Ć© do sĆ©culo XVII. Desta ponte tambĆ©m podemos olhar para uma paisagem Ćŗnica do desfiladeiro e ā€œPuente Nuevoā€. Para alcanƧar estas pontes, podemos caminhar ao longo da antiga muralha de Ronda enquanto apreciamos os campos verdes que rodeiam a cidade, ao mesmo tempo que nos cruzamos com os Banhos Ɓrabes.

BaƱos Ɓrabes (Moorish baths)

šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ The Moorish baths are really an impressive structure. The building was adapted from former Roman ruins. Differently from the Romans, that used immersion baths, the Arab baths would be mainly steam baths.

Three of the main rooms are in good preservation state. One of the most impressive rooms is the mild baths, where there are shape cuts in the ceiling for the entrance of sunlight. In specific times of the day, it creates quite an ambience!

The baths were an important part of the religious ritual and also an important part of social life. Men and women would use it in different shifts.

šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ Os Banhos Ɓrabes sĆ£o realmente uma estrutura impressionante! O edifĆ­cio foi adaptado de antigas ruĆ­nas romanas. Ao contrĆ”rio dos Romanos, que usavam banhos de imersĆ£o, os Ɓrabes utilizavam maioritariamente banhos de vapor.

TrĆŖs das principais salas estĆ£o em bom estado de conservaĆ§Ć£o. Uma das salas mais impressionantes Ć© a sala de banhos temperados, com as suas estruturas e as formas de corte no telhado para a entrada de luz solar. Em alturas especĆ­ficas do dia, cria uma fantĆ”stica ambiĆŖncia!

Os Banhos eram uma componente importante do ritual religioso e tambƩm da vida social. Homens e mulheres utilizavam os Banhos em turnos diferentes.

Additional notes

šŸ‡¬šŸ‡§ Our visit was short so we decided to focus on the city spirit and landscape. If you are going for a longer visit check this page for more suggestions and links.

Additionally, for someone that has been living in Extremadura region, we considered Ronda quite more expensive, probably because AndalucĆ­a is much more touristic ā€“ we were constantly bumping into big excursions and even for winter, the streets were pretty crowded. So if you want to visit the main monuments and have a tight budget do some research before travelling for better options. Some entries are more expensive than others.

šŸ‡µšŸ‡¹ A nossa visita foi curta, por isso, decidimos focar-nos no espĆ­rito da cidade e nas suas paisagens. Se viajas a Ronda com mais tempo, visita esta pĆ”gina para mais sugestƵes e links.

Para alĆ©m disso, para quem tem como referĆŖncia a vida na regiĆ£o da Extremadura, consideramos Ronda cara, tambĆ©m provavelmente porque a regiĆ£o da Andaluzia Ć© mais popular em termos turĆ­sticos. Mesmo para Inverno, cruzĆ”mo-nos frequentemente com grandes excursƵes, e muitas ruas estavam cheias de pessoas. Por isso, se queres visitar os monumentos principais e, ainda assim, obedecer a um orƧamento especĆ­fico, faz alguma pesquisa antes de viajar para encontrares o que mais se adequa a ti. Algumas entradas sĆ£o mais caras do que outras.
