The bullring of Ronda- Plaza de Toros

The bullring of Ronda- Plaza de Toros

No doubt that the Ronda bullring (Plaza de Toros) , together with the Puente Nuevo or New Bridge, is the most important building of the city and a visit is an absolute must-do. It is like a sanctuary of contemporarty bullfight and on top of that the construction is the oldest conserved arena.

Beautiful hotel in Malaga , Ronda

We will definitely be going back before the […]

(Ironically after our european trip, […]
