The Parador of Ronda sits above the famous Ronda gorge. Originally built in the 1700''s as the town hall building, the interior is modern and beautiful.
This was probably our favorite hotel in Spain.
We got a room at the last minute due to a cancellation (this is a good way
to get a room last minute) and it ended up being a deluxe suite. The suite is two stories with a downstairs lounge and bathroom (where our kids slept) -We had the master bedroom upstairs with a big king-size bed wooden floors and pretty furniture. We also had a nice Jacuzzi bath! Our room also had a huge balcony overlooking the old city of Ronda, the Parador''s pool, and the gorge below.

The regional fare in the restaurant gave us plenty to choose from. After a trip through the bull ring, I had to try the bull''s tail washed down with a nice heavy Rioja . . . mmm.
Before we left, Mrs O and I took a ride in a horse-drawn carriage from the bull ring (well worth a visit, cited as the inspiration for Hemingway’s Death in the Afternoon), allowing us time to learn more from the driver about the history of the town, stopping to pop into different churches and abbeys. I guess we usually avoid the "touristic," but this was well worth the time and cash (circa £12). What followed was an Imelda-like orgy of the first order as Mrs O filled her bags and my credit card buying shoes in a local emporium . . . well they were bargains, weren’t they?.
