Antequera to Ronda

Before leaving Antequera this morning we went to visit the Alcazaba of Antequera. An alcazaba is a Moorish fortress. The Alcazaba is, not surprisingly, the highest point in Antequera. The audio guide was interesting and the views were stupendous.

From Antequera we drove to Ronda. We have magnificent rooms in the Parador overlooking the gorge and the Ronda New bridge which was completed in 1793

We went out for a walk.

For dinner we ate at a wonderful nearby restaurant, Las Tablas.

The view from our room at night is even better than the daytime view.

  1. Amazing construction of buildings and bridges from that time period! We’re now lucky if buildings last 50 years!! I guess the cost of labor and materials has changed!
