Ronda: Events & Festivals

Fiestas de la Virgen de la Paz – Semana Santa

This festival happens on the 24th of January. The week around the date is known as the Holy Week and the event is followed in other Andalucian towns as well. There is a procession which starts from late afternoon and goes on for hours. The people walk through the streets and alleys of the old town. The historic charm of the area makes the procession attractive. People cross Tajo at Puente Nuevo and get into the Plaza Espana. Taking a glance of the procession from the balcony of Parador is quite a view!

Hermandad de la Virgen de la Cabeza

This event includes the most beautiful picturesque pilgrimage. The event takes place on the last Sunday of May, or on the first Sunday of June. This fills the town with vibrant colours and festive music. This too includes a procession, where the ‘Virgin of the Head’ statue is taken across the Puente Nuevo, after having picked from the la Merced Church.
