El Balcón del Coño, Ronda

Ronda is the mountaintop city of dreams located in Spain’s Malaga province, Andalusia. One of Spain’s oldest cities popular with Hemingway and Orson Welles.

This little balcony close to the Alameda park has to be one of the best places to marvel at the surrounding landscape.  Lean over the balcony and take a deep breath if you dare! My wife and son patiently stood there while I followed the path around to get this photo of them.  Over a hundred metres below is the stunning Tajo valley.

    Very impressive to see the clouds above your wife and son’s heads. Of course I am also looking at that picture thinking: “how did they build THAT?” #MySundayPhoto

    1. Quite, how did they build that? as with most of Ronda. Great city, thanks

    What a beautiful place! Not sure I would be brave enough to stand there though! 😀 #sundayphoto

    1. Thanks, it’s really beautiful to look into that valley. I watched a few people step on to the balcony without realising how high it is 🙂

    1. Thanks, it is atmospheric there, great sunsets. Way down below there used to be mills using the river and wheat fields.

  4. Wow I love this, such a great shot and that view x

    1. Thanks for the comment. The view goes on and on into the Sierra de Grazalema.

    I’m not even sure I could get on the balcony let alone lean over! What a view though. Stunning.

    1. It’s well worth a snaeky peak over the edge, luckily we don’t suffer from vertigo!
