Ronda a los Viajeros Románticos ...
Mar 2019
Near Ronda's "Palacio de Congresos" and not far from "Puente Nuevo", a beautiful ceramic tiled mural portrays, just like a visual map, the city and its main tourist attractions. Around the map, small plaques capture thoughts and phrases written by famous romantic travellers regarding their personal impressions and feelings about Ronda. A quick visit, a few pics and you are done. Enjoy!

Lovely Mural
Jan 2020
This is a lovely mural that gives you a great idea of the old city. You cannot really miss it as you take a walk through the town. Plenty of shops, restaurants and cafes nearby.

Attractive Mural with "Drone" View of Ronda
Nov 2019
This attractive ceramic mural shows a view of the dramatic scenery of the city of Ronda, as it were seen by a drone from the Western side. It was made by local potters, signed IEAS Martin Rivero BackArte Ronda. In 2013 it was decided to place phrases and thoughts about Ronda uttered by romantic travellers throughout time. So this is not a very old Mural altogether but it is attractive to have a look at and take a photo of.

Interesting quick stop

Stop by the Plaça to reflect for a few moments between view points for the new bridge. The map of Ronda is quite interesting as are the eclectic quotes from famous visitors.

A Pause for Thought
Nov 2018 • Couples
If you are wandering the city of Ronda in the region of the Palacio de Congresos you will see, on one of the exterior walls, a group of ceramic tiles under the title of Viajeros Romanticos. This group represents the thoughts and phrases that were written by some of the Romantic travellers that have visited in the past and felt moved to demonstrate their impressions of Ronda. The decision to present this display came about in 2013 at the time of the 6th Congress of History of Ronda, which in this year was dedicated to Romanticism.

The industrialisation of the northern European countries during the 18th and 19th centuries precipitated the destruction of many of the natural landscapes and engendered demographic movements of the population between the countryside and the city. The loss of the natural landscapes meant that alternatives were sought by the younger generation in the form of a unique journey to explore the roots of civilisation, the so-called Grand Tour. The beauty of picturesque Spain, the splendour of the European mountains, the archeological remains of Greece and Italy were the favourite destinations. The attractions concentrated on the sensations of the visitors rather than the influence of enlightenment and reason. Focused use of adjectives such as spectacular, enormous, impressive, sublime, ethereal and lavish describe landscapes idealised through the eyes of writers and artists.

These romantic travellers got the high society of northern Europe to look to the south and in it find their missing paradise. Their poetry, illustrations, writings, guides, works and novels assisted in forming the topics that still surround us today, from bandits to bull-fighters and maestros to mountains. They also helped us to value our traditions and heritage. Their passionate outputs first encouraged hundreds that led to thousands and then became millions of people, looking to pursue the Grand Tour. Perhaps these ceramics serve as a modest tribute to these early tourists.

Thanks for reading this and if you've found it helpful I'd appreciate a ‘thumbs up’ below.

Great ceramica view of the town in past years
Sep 2018 • Couples
A very good representation of Ronda in ceramic tiles not too far away from the Puente Nuevo bridge. Well worth looking out for.
