The medieval, Moorish city of Ronda is close by with its historic attractions, museums and galleries and an abundance of small bars and restaurants. The famous Ronda bullring is one of the oldest in Spain. It's museum charts the history of bullfighting and a few times during the year bullfights are still held. The historic city of Granada with the glorious Alhambra is an interesting day trip with a train service from Ronda taking about two hours. Jerez, famous for its sherry bodegas and Andalucian dancing horses, makes for a delightful excursion as do the magical cities of Seville and Cordoba.
