Plaza de Espana is the main town square which some people may recall was made famous by Ernest Hemingway's best-seller "For Whom the Bell Tolls" - the town hall referred to in the book is now the Parador Hotel. Like most visitors, we found the...More

Plaza Espana is located at one end of the Puente Nuevo or new bridge. Edged by cafes, this open space is close to the bull ring, information centre and lookout points for great pictures of the gorge.

Typical town plaza but so much nearby. Old town across the bridge providing awesome vistas and, of course, not to be outdone by the views from the plaza.

Ronda's main square was a place I'd wanted to visit for a long time. I'd read 'For Whom the Bell Tolls', Ernest Hemingway's classic war story of the Spanish civil war of the 1930's. Now I saw the setting of some of his famous scenes...More

This is a wide plaza in the “new part of the city. We passed through it many times during our stay. There are lots of shops, and several cafes.

The hotel entrance leads onto this square that is on the modern town side of the bridge. It has a nice open feeling and a good restaurant on one side.

There virtually was no city. Once the bridge was completed in 1793, many opened businesses...More
