The Costa del Sol is best enjoyed slowly, being seduced by all its charms and stopping to appreciate every detail. Ronda is a fabulous town in the province of Malaga that has been charming travellers from all over the world for centuries. Characters like Benjamin Disraeli, Richard Ford, Martin Amis or Orson Welles were already in love with Ronda, one of the most beautiful and representative places of Spain. One of those cities that seems to have no end, and which continually offers more and more things. Slow travel bets on a new way of discovering destinations exploring them little by Little, as if you lived in them.
