Ronda, Spain: Gorge-Straddling Hill Town
Spaniards know Ronda, one of the White Hill Towns of Andalucía, as the cradle of modern bullfighting and for its stunning cliffside location. The real joy of Ronda lies in exploring the old and new sections, taking in its beautiful balconies, exuberant flowerpots, and panoramic views into the gorge far below. Strolling the back streets, you feel a strong local pride and sense of community where mingling over delicious tapas is a time-honored tradition.
