Alameda del Tajo (Gorge Promenade), Ronda
Five different landscaped avenues lead to a vast area affording extraordinary views of the Ronda Gorge and the Ronda district. Some of the trees lining the avenues are more than 200 years old. Himalayan cedars, stone pines, and honey locusts can be found. The Caldron Handle (Asa de la Caldera) is an impressive rock formation in the area, great for photos.
Statuary appears along the way. There is the Monument to the Goyesque Lady, a figure of a woman in a traditional costume created by sculptor Francisco Parra. There is a memorial statue of the famous Torero Pedro Romero and a group called Angels (Angeles).
The English Path (Paseo de los Ingleses) is a cliffside path that leads to the gardens of the Hotel Catalonia. The Path of the Limes (Camino de los Tilos) is lined with lime-scented trees. Come to the Vicente Espinel Municipal Theater, a modern building with exposed brick, columns, and crystal windows.
Adjoining the Gorge Promenade is the park Gardens of Blas Infante (Jardines de Blas Infante). It has an open-air auditorium and of course, stunning views of El Tajo Gorge.
