What a hotel in Ronda offers business guests
Ronda, a traditional Spanish city, sits on a mountaintop in the Malaga province of Andalusia. The city stands above a deep gorge, known as El Tajo, which separates the old town from what is dubbed the 15th-century ‘new town’. Ideal for business-related activities, Ronda offers several hotels with facilities for conferences and meetings, as well as excellent restaurants and bars. Outside of business hours, the Moorish and Roman architecture makes for a fascinating tour.
What does Ronda have to offer?
In addition to Roman and Moorish architecture, the city boasts several cultural museums. Wine lovers will enjoy a tour of the Ronda Wine Museum, where you can sample a selection of the local Andalusian wines and learn about the winemaking activities in the area. Close to your hotel, you’ll find several quaint and interesting shops with artisan goods for sale, and many coffee shops and bars.
What teambuilding activities does Ronda offer?
If you’re away from your hotel, there are several internet cafes available with business options, including fax and telephone. Santo Domingo Convent has been converted into a conference centre for meetings of 10-200 people, while the Ronda bullring offers a library and conference room for meetings. In addition to facilities available at the hotels, Ronda offers many sports and teambuilding activities, including rock climbing, caving, canoeing, paintball, and 4x4 excursions.
Where should I visit when staying in a hotel in Ronda?
A visit to the Puente Nuevo, the ‘new’ bridge that spans the deep El Tajo gorge in the town, offers incredible views across the countryside. Those feeling more energetic can take a stroll down into the gorge along what is called the Camino de los Molinos. Among the more popular destinations in Ronda, this route takes visitors on a stroll to a lookout hanging right over the gorge. Step out of your hotel and explore Ronda – visit the original Arab Baths, the remains of the Moorish walls, and other buildings in the city. In the centre of town, see the historic 18th-century Plaza del Toros, renowned for being the oldest bullring in Spain and once visited by the author Ernest Hemingway. The bullring is now a museum displaying costumes from the famous bullfighters of Ronda. Visitors can walk right out into the arena.
