Ronda Getting there

By Car

Most people visit Ronda by car or bus (45mins) from the Costa del Sol, via San Pedro de Alcántara on the A-376. The route through the Sierra Bermeja mountains is dramatic, and in winter the peaks attract low cloud and even snow.

A gentler route from Malaga city is the A-357, passing the villages of Ardales, Carratraca and Cuevas de Becerra.

There's also a more westerly and also very dramatic route from Sabanillas and Manilva west of Estepona, taking the A-377 via Casares and Gaucín to Ronda.

The most enjoyable way of driving to Seville from the Costa del Sol is via Ronda, taking a series of minor roads, in excellent condition due to a recent road improvement programme. This route takes you through some of the most beautiful countryside in Andalucia, where red poppies bloom in spring, and the sunflower fields ripen in early summer. See our Itineraries.



By Train

There are several daily train connections from Algeciras, Granada, Málaga and Sevilla, the last three changing at Bobadilla. The spectacular train journey from Algeciras and San Roque to Ronda follows the plunging valley of the River Guadiaro, in sections where there are few roads. Read the extraordinary history of  'Mr Hendersons railway'.

Length of Train Journeys from Ronda:
