The climate of the Serranía de Ronda is of the typical Mediterranean type.For that reason among its characteristics is to have a quite regular seasonal regime. Besides its summers are warm and dry. And also its moderately fresh winters with several temperatures below zero.
In spring and autumn the temperatures are usually mild and moderately warm. It is also necessary to say that towards the second half of the spring and first half of the autumn. The average annual temperature is around 15 ºC.
On the other hand, rainfall is abundant above 1000 mm/year and 1700 mm/year in the most western areas. It should be noted that the municipality is next to the Sierra de Grazalema, the rainiest place in southern Spain.
The Sierra de Grazalema and Natural Parks
Its climate is conditioned by its location next to the Sierra de Grazalema. Because Ronda occupies the so-called depression of Ronda and is surrounded by mountains.
In addition, in the interior the relief is mild and includes areas of pasture and horticultural and cereal areas. The altitude ranges from almost 2.000 metres above sea level in the Torrecilla peak to less than 600 metres above sea level in the lowest area.
The city of Ronda is on a rocky plateau at about 700 metres above sea level. But we also find two different parts because of the division of the Tajo de Ronda.
Besides the Tajo extends over the valley of the Molinos. To the east of the city is the natural park of the Sierra de las Nieves. Also to the south is the Genal Valley and to the west the Sierra de Grazalema. And to the north other plains.
Flora and Fauna
This gives rise to the characteristic flora and fauna of this area.
With a great natural richness, with an infinity of animal and vegetable species. Even some unique in the world, such as the Spanish fir or the mountain gall oak. Other animal species such as the mountain goat or the otter maintain stable populations of individuals in this reserve.

Festivals in Ronda
In Ronda, as in the rest of Andalusia, traditional festivals are held, such as the Cabalgata de Reyes (Three Kings’ Parade), carnival in February, Easter, Corpus Christi and various fairs and pilgrimages.
Ronda’s Holy Week has been awarded the title of National Tourist Interest in Andalusia. Furthermore, from a religious point of view, it is one of the most important events in the city. It coincides with the first full moon of spring. It has a total of 15 processions made by 14 brotherhoods. The most important are:
Easter Wednesday with the brotherhoods of Our Father Jesus in the Column and Mary Most Holy of Hope and the Old Brotherhood of Silence.
Easter Thursday with the brotherhoods of the Vera Cruz, El Ecce-Homo and Cristo de la Buena Muerte (La Legión). In addition to the early morning, the brotherhood of Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno and the Virgen de los Dolores.
May is the most important month in Ronda for many celebrations. Because in this month there are two very important processions and a fair:
The procession of the Crowned Virgin of Peace, which is the patron saint and mayoress of Ronda
And also that of the Virgin Mary Help of Christians
In addition, one of the fairs is also held in May. It is called Ronda Romántica. Because its mission is to make known the historical period in which bandits were common. Since 2014, the May Fair has had a special boom. This is why the number of visitors has increased. It must also be said that this fair takes place in the centre of the city. And all the citizens of Ronda and neighbouring towns dress up in costumes from the romantic period.
In June the Corpus Christi is celebrated, which here has the name of Corpus Chiquito.
On the first Sunday of July the pilgrimage of the Virgen de la Cabeza takes place. It leaves from the church of La Merced to go to the hermitage of the Virgen de la Cabeza.
In September there is another fair in Ronda. It is dedicated to the bullfighter Pedro Romero. It has also been declared of National Tourist Interest in Andalusia.
And in October the San Francisco Fair takes place. Because the day of San Francisco is the 4th of October. During this fair, which is held in the San Francisco district of Ronda, there are various leisure and sports activities and the traditional livestock fair.
This bullring is a historic building in the city of Ronda in the province of Malaga. And it is also a building with the category of Cultural Interest as a Monument.
First of all its bullring has 66 meters in diameter and is the largest in the world. It is also surrounded by an alleyway formed by two stone rings.
It should also be noted that the stands have five rows of tiers, two floors, with 136 columns forming 68 arches of Tuscan columns. All except the Royal Box. And it is covered with a gabled roof made of Arabic tiles, with a great elegance in its interior.
The Museum of the Royal Cavalry of Ronda
The Museum of the Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda is under the shadowy lines. Inside the square there is also the bullfighting museum, the Royal Saddlery of the House of Orleans. And also here we find a collection of antique firearms.
The need of defending the territory made king Felipe II found in 1572 the Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda (Royal Cavalry School of Ronda). For this purpose, this body dedicated a space in the city for equestrian exercises, including games of skill with bulls.
But in the 18th century the bullfighters on foot took over the games with the bull. Then the Romero family appeared in Ronda, which for three generations brought together the most important bullfighters in Spain.
The definitive consecration of the bullfights as a festival takes place during the reign of Felipe V. It was consolidated in the following century.
The construction of Ronda’s bullring is an undertaking that comes to fruition both because of the interest of the Maestranza. But also because of the importance and validity of the bullfighting tradition in the city.
The rise of bullfighting led the Royal Cavalry of Ronda to erect its famous bullring. It is a work of Martín de Aldehuela, the same architect of the New Bridge over the Tajo of Ronda.
The construction of the square took six years, and it was inaugurated in 1785. Pedro Romero and Pepe-Hillo fought in its first bullfight. The Plaza is similar to the circular courtyard of the famous palace of Charles V of the Alhambra.
The Goyesca Bullfight of Ronda
During the 20th century, another family from Ronda, the Ordóñez family, made a great contribution to the history of bullfighting. Its two main figures were Cayetano Ordóñez (1904-1961) and his son Antonio Ordóñez (1932-1998), who aroused, because of their way of conceiving bullfighting, the interest of personalities like the filmmaker Orson Welles and the American writer Ernest Hemingway.
In 1954 this family created the Goyesque bullfight of Ronda, because it was celebrating the II Centenary of the birth of Pedro Romero. It is a bullfight but with clothes and the apparatus of the times of the painter Goya.
The Ascari Circuit in Ronda
Well, if there is a racing circuit in Ronda, there is. Because Ascari Circuit is a new concept of circuit that aims to combine a competition space with rest and relaxation. The idea for this project came from the millionaire Klass Zwart, a Dutchman in love with Andalusia.
In 1995, he founded Ascari Cars, a company dedicated to the manufacture of sports and racing cars. Later, in 1999, Zwart sold Petroline to the American company Wetherfords for 145 million euros and reinvested 40 million euros in the construction of his private circuit in Ronda.
The Ascari Circuit
This circuit opened its doors in 2003, and is the longest circuit in Spain. In 2006 the Ascari Circuit received from the President of the Royal Spanish Automobile Federation the FIA Category 2 Approval License.
The circuit is private and can only be accessed by booking a driving experience or by being a member of its prestigious Club de Socios.
It has 26 curves (13 to the right and 13 to the left). The circuit was designed following the natural course of the terrain.
Some of the names of the corners are inspired by other circuits and personalities from the motoring world.
The width over the entire course is 12.2 m. You can find bends with minimum radii and bends with very large radii on the track. Other bends with marked camber, uphills and downhills of up to 12% and demanding chicanes.
The Ronda circuit has eight fully equipped double boxes, a washroom and a workshop for repairs. It also has:
- A kart circuit
- A skid pad for safe driving courses
- The 4×4 area
- A buggy track
The Club also offers free of charge technicians, engineers and monitors who advise on mechanics, telemetry and driving…
The circuit incorporates the latest technology in all aspects. To access the pits or the garage there is a fingerprint recognition system. Its security systems are impeccable. In addition, this system allows members to pay the bills for what they consume in the restaurant or for the services they hire.
The Ascari circuit also has a hospitality, located in one of the paddock’s pits. There is a bar with drinks and snacks for club members.
La Legion in Ronda
The Grupo de Caballería Reyes Católicos II of the Spanish Legion has its headquarters in the Legion’s barracks in Ronda.
The Legion has had its headquarters in Ronda since the 1st of January 2008. Following the transformation, merger and transfer of several units spread throughout Spain.
After the Royal Decree 416/2006 of Organization and deployment of the Force, the General Rule 05/2007 of organic adaptations ordered the transformation of the Grupo Mecanizado Dragones de Soria II/9,
of the Light Cavalry Regiment Battleship Numancia No. 9 in Reconnaissance Group II (GCR II) under the King Alfonso XIII II Light Infantry Brigade of the Legion, and its subsequent transfer from the General Ricardos Base in Zaragoza to the General Gabeiras Barracks in Ronda (Malaga).
This transfer was carried out by road and rail on the 29th of November 2007. On the 1st of January 2008 the founding act of the unit was held, and ten days later it was solemnly handed over to the First Lieutenant Colonel of the GCR II, of which it had been the original script of the GLC Reyes Católicos until its deactivation.
By virtue of the provisions of General Rule 03/2011 on organic adaptations, the unit regained its previous name, becoming the Catholic Monarchs II Legion Recognition Cavalry Group (GCR II).
As of 1 January 2016 it became Grupo de Caballería Ligero Acorazado Reyes Católicos II de la Legión (GCLAC II).
The General Gabeiras de Ronda barracks also houses the Tercio Alejandro Farnesio 4º de la Legión, the Montejaque Services Unit and a detachment of the 22nd Regiment of Transmissions.
In addition, during the period in which the Group was deactivated, its facilities were used by the Special Operations Flag Maderal de Oleaga de la Legión, currently moved to Alicante.
The barracks offer sufficient and adequate space for all the units it houses, although recently it has been necessary to adapt certain infrastructures related to the parking and maintenance of combat vehicles. In addition to offices, armouries, warehouses and changing rooms for all the units, as well as a residence for the troop personnel, it houses various facilities dedicated to the individual instruction of the combatant, such as classrooms, gymnasium, swimming pool, sports fields, application track, shooting gallery, “black room” for night combat and, especially, the “Steel Beasts” armoured vehicle crew simulation room.
