The scenic Spanish city of Ronda, located in extreme southern Spain, is on a plateau in the mountains of Malaga province, with beautiful cliff-top views of the valley below and of the Guadalevín River. It's famous in Spain for the deep river gorge, El Tajo, that divides the medieval and 18th century parts of the town. It has inspired poet Rainier Maria Rilke and is the site of Spanish Civil War scenes in Hemingway's "For Whom the Bell Tolls."
