Ronda has its origin in the Roman Arunda that would be from existing Iberian settlements. The Visigoths gave continuity to the arrival of the Muslims, who consolidated their role of regional head and its urban entity. Its location facilitated the defense of the city and placed in a strategic position to master the steps and paths towards Lower Andalusia.


This and the availability of land suitable for agriculture finally granted a remarkable historical significance. The city sits on a plateau cut by a deep pit dug by the Guadalevín River, looming buildings of its historic center, which gives the city a picturesque panorama that, coupled with the variety of monuments that has, in natural environment and its proximity to the large centers of mass tourism of the Costa del Sol, Ronda has made a remarkable resort. The cornice of the pit and the bridge that saves are the quintessential image of the city.
