  • Nice audio tour, beautiful views of Ronda and the surrounding area. Beautiful church. Former mosque, converted into a church.

  • Built by the Catholic monarchs on an ancient mosque, it has a mix of styles between Gothic and Mannerist. Arab reminiscences in the arches of its facade. Inside you can visit with the help of an audioguide. A former there are splendid wooden choir. In the basement there is a very interesting Museum with books miniados with wonderful replicas of ancient Catholic codices

  • A very beautiful Cathedral with very beautiful statues of the Virgin Mary: her dress designed details, even down to the earrings. On the internal stairs you can climb under the dome of the Cathedral and see the decorations of the Cathedral from the top down. Also there is a small observation platform on the perimeter of the Cathedral. And here's where you can enjoy a truly stunning views of the city: the endless sea of white houses. Rhonda-Queen white towns of Andalusia.

  • We visited tho Place on a whim, and were really glad we did. From the outside it looks like nothing, but inside it's magnificent. The scale makes it more accessible than one of the great cathedrals, like Seville, and the really excellent audio tour (included in the €4.50 ticket price) brings out the best about the history, architecture and the excellent shrines and altars and relics inside. And be sure to go up on the roof decks if they're open--the entrance isn't marked on the tour (back right corner from the ticket entrance) but the views are amazing.
  • Majestic, monumental Church, with many years of history on its back, a visit worth it, or not you are Christian.
