Andalucia Diary – Seasonal Travel Notes

Discovering new “rincones” of Ronda

Having a Rondeño partner means that by ex-pat standards I know the town better than most – yet each time I go I still discover a little more. Before a saturday family lunch of tapas & seafood, Rafa & I walked around the old town and visited the "Casa del Gigante", that despite its name is rather bijou. 

La casa del gigante

Taking its name from the ancient 7th century sculpture of a giant Hercules that decorated the entrance of the property for hundreds of years. The small palace reminds us when Ronda was an arabic stronghold, with thriving moorish medina, elegant baths and numerous mosques.

Ronda – from the gloriously kitch and dramatic cinematic shorts, "Andalucia es de cine"  – now available on DVD in English and Spanish.
