El Tajo de Ronda Gorge
This space, declared an Andalusian Natural Monument (Monumento Natural de Andalucía in 2019), has two distinct sections. The first, a 500-metre long gorge that is 100 metre deep that goes to the Guadalevín river. The other part is a large scarp that opens onto “La Caldera”, a circular hollow.
It’s the most original part of the city with thousands of people going to admire and photograph the geological marvel.
Its origins date back to 5,000 years ago when a seismic movement created two plateaus separated by the magnificent gorge called the Tajo de Ronda. It’s also a perfect place for those who love birdwatching because you can enjoy difficult-to-find species such as the red-billed though or the lesser kestrel among others.
