I am going to Ronda from Malaga or Seville. But i could not find the public transport information as Bus or train ( i found this line is not mentioned on any bus company's website) . Could you help? What is your suggestion?

We took a bus to Ronda from the station in Torremolinos, which is right near Malaga. Check the bus schedules from Malaga, or else head to Torremolinos and go from there. Ronda has a decent (in terms of size - not cleanliness!) bus station, so I presume busses come from quite a few places.

I know it is difficult or even impossible to get from Seville to Ronda directly by bus or train. We took a bus from Cadiz, which was a wonderful journey through the countryside. Alternatively, you can also leave from Jerez de la Frontera which is only an hour south of Seville by train.

Hope this helps,

Jason - Ronda is the best thing to see in that part of Spain. Situated on top of a cliff, split in two by a gorge, lovely buildings, including the oldest functioning bullfighting arena. has seven pictures of it.

You can go by train from Malaga with a change in Bobadilla (one direct train in the evening). It should take between 2 and 2.5hours,m depending upon the connection.

From Sevilla it takes about 3hrs 15 by train, again changing in Bobadilla (or, occassionally, Cordoba).

HOWEVER - Note that in both cases there are not huge numbers of connection a day (3 or 4 useful ones in general), so you will need to plan a little ahead to make sure you have a connection from Bobadilla to Ronda. Also note that Interciy trains (and higher) in Spain require compulsary reservation, and depending when you travel, it's possible that one of your two legs on - from either destination - might be on such a train. Cheack in Malaga or Sevilla SJ stations.
