Ronda: A Visual Tour

On Saturday, I took a day trip to Ronda (3 hours away by train) with my friend, Jeanette. It is a small pueblo blanco rich in history and with beautiful views. Enjoy!

Amazing view from the Puente Nueva.

The Plaza de Toros: 225 years old!

Puente Nueva, situated in a gorge.

My travel companion, Jeanette and I! My hair looks strangely red, no?

Inside a church in the old part of town.

Climbing up the tower in the church

Jeanette and I hiked to these Arab baths. I was not as fortunate on this hike as I was on the last...I did tumble and bleed a little. In my defense, we later found out that the hiking trail was a little dangerous for even "the fit and able bodied."

Puente Viejo...also with lovely views!

Apparently Michelle Obama came to visit!

At a wine museum drinking Cabernet Savignon (did I spell that right?)

Lots & lots of wine!
