Something prospective guests frequently ask before confirming their booking is if there is anything to do in Ronda. The answer is always a resounding "Yes!" and we direct them to this blog where they can discover articles with recommendations of things to do in Ronda, details of adventure sports and activities, hiking, bird watching... we could go on and on. However, what is particularly tantalising is how many parties, celebrations and festivals there are going in Andalusia (around 3,000 a year!). Let's have a look at at one that's coming up soon: the Ronda International Guitar Festival.
Andalusians have a reputation for being passionate, and according to award-winning flamenco dancer Sara Baras from Cádiz, passion is "the most important thing in flamenco". You don't have to understand Spanish to be able to appreciate this Andalusian art form. Flamenco shows are generally intimate, close-to-the-stage affairs. As the lights dim and the guitarist plucks the introduction, there's the click of heels and fingers, a swish of skirt, the song begins, and the raw emotion in the singer's voice will make your hairs stand on end.
