We were debating if we should spend today in Seville relaxing or go to Ronda to see something new. we chose the latter. I am so glad we did because Ronda is such a beautiful place. There was only one direct bus from Seville (10:00 am) to Ronda in the morning we went. And it took about 1 hour and 45 minutes to reach Ronda. The view along the way was quite nice.
