If you're in Ronda for more than a few hours, you will probably spend more of your time in the northern half than in the south (and you'll almost certainly sleep there).
Plaza España and the nearby Plaza de Toros will be your point orientation spot. From here you can cross the bridge at the Puente Nuevo, the most important of the three bridges. On the other side is 'La Ciudad' (The City), which is the old Arabic quarter. Upon crossing the bridge, turn left - there you will see the Casa del Rey Moro. Its gardens are open to the public, as is the Islamic stairway cut into the side of the gorge. The other two bridges can be located here to take you back across to the northern part of the city. But before you do that, explore the rest of La Ciudad. On the other side is Plaza María Auxiliadora, offering excellent views of the Andalusian landscape.
