Semana Santa

Like all Andalucian towns, Ronda celebrates Holy Week with processions, most of which begin in the late afternoon and take hours to wend through the streets and alleys of the old city. Due to its historic charm Ronda is an excelent place to watch the proscssions. Many cross the Tajo at puente nuevo into Plaza Espana. The Baclcony of the rooms of the Parador are an excxcelent place to watch these processions. The Legionairs procession on the night of Jueves Santo and the Widows on Viernes Santo are highlights of Ronda Semana Santa.

Feria Goysesque

The Feria Goyesca (properly called the Feria de Pedro Romero) stems from the inter-relationship of three main personae which spanned over three centuries, all with strong connections to Ronda. They are the famous 18th century bullfighter, Pedro Romero; the extremely influential 18th century Spanish painter, Francisco de la Goya; and finally, the great 20th century bullfighter, Antoñio Ordóñez, to whom the vision of the Ronda's modern Feria Goyesca can be attributed.
