Photographer's Note

We stopped in Ronda on our way to the Costa del Sol to catch a ferry to Morocco. The town is quite picturesque. It's main attraction, I believe, is the fact that a great deal of its buildings are build on a cliff. This is a different picture of Ronda: the Moorish baths of the 13th century. It was quite dark in there, so it was hard to take a picture. I was attracted to the holes in the roof letting the light in.

"Ronda is a picturesque old town that straddles a breath taking gorge. Perched high on a rock precipice 150 metres (just under 500 ft) above the gorge below the town sits on both sides of the gorge with the old Moorish town of La Ciudad (literally 'The City') to the South and the newer El Mercadillo (Little Market) district to the North. Three bridges span the ravine, the most impressive being the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge) which was built in the 18th Century. This is where most tourist activity can be found and where the most dramatic photos can be taken. There are several little cafés and restaurants around the area enabling visitors to relax and enjoy the scenery. Some of the narrow side streets afford the opportunity to take photos looking back up at the bridge and capture the staggering gorge and the bridge. The 13th Century Baños Arabes (Moorish baths) are worth a visit, lying close to the river they are fairly well preserved, including a large vaulted roof."
