History of Ronda                 Situated   in   the   far   north   west   of   the   province   of   Málaga,   Ronda   sits   on   an   outcrop   of   rock   in   a   basin   surrounded   by   mountain   ranges,   the   height   and length   of   which   make   access   to   the   town   difficult. This   fact,   together   with   the   climate,   hydrology   and   geology   of   the   area,   has   left   an   indelible   stamp   on   its history.          One   of   oldest   towns   in   Spain,   Ronda   has   its   origins   in   prehistory.   The   cave   of   the   Pileta,   a   true   relic   of   Andalusian   stone   age   art,   is   one   of   the   most significant remains of this period together with various groups of megalithic monuments such as the Dolmen of the Chopo ( Poplar ).          Scattered   around   the   province   one   finds   various   remains   from   the   Roman   period,   the   most   important   being   the   archeological   site   of   the   Roman   town   of Acinipo.          Nevertheless,   the   most   striking   aspect   of   the   cultural   heritage   of   Ronda   and   ist   surroundings   is Arabic,   Under   muslim   rule   the   town   rose   to   importance as   the   capital   of   one   of   the   live   coras   of Al-Andalus. This   influence   has   impregnated   the   style   of   building,   the   gastronomy,   agricultural   practices   and   many other traditions in the region.         The   conquest   of   the   town   by   the   Catholic   Kings   in   1485   was   followed   by   a   period   of   cultural   and   structural   reorganization,   but   not   until   the   18   th   century did   the   role   of   the   town   become   clear   in   the   general   context   of   Andalusia.   It   was   during   this   period   that   Ronda´s   most   significant   and   emblematic monuments were built; the New Bridge and the Bullring.          The   romantic   image   of   the   town   was   forged,   without   doubt,   during   the   19   th   century   with   banditry   and   bullfighting   making   a   strong   impression   on   the minds   of   distinguished   travellers.   These   two   aspects   have   since   become   symbolic   of   the   culture   and   traditions   of   the   area,   nevertheless,   Ronda   has   a wealth   of   culture   and   tradition   which   goes   beyond   this   over   simplified   image,   and   it   is   this   diversity   on   which   the   present   day   attraction   of   the   town   and the Serranía is based.
