During this three days, Ronda will return to the difficult and romantic days of the XIX century. At that time, the city was blessed and cursed by many events of love and hate, pride and vengueance.

Spain was a very different place ; bad communications, profound misery, and big social differences. The rich where very rich, and the poor where very poor.

In this specific time and place, a special human character appeared :  the “bandolero” .

Some people would think of them as spanish Robin Hoods, some other have a less romantic approach. Nevertheless Ronda is the place this weekend to enjoy all the lights and shadows of that time.

Every day there will be a lot of events, including reenactments, gastronomy, various visits to less unknown places, and a lot of Fiesta !!!
