It is very easy to travel by train to Ronda, a lovely spot in the hills of rural Andalucía. Ronda is tiny, yet justifiably renowned for its dramatic mountain scenery. You can travel direct to Ronda from Madrid. Twice-daily Altaria trains speed from the Spanish capital to Ronda in just under 4 hrs. Ronda is also a good base for journeys to larger cities in Andalucía. Córdoba and Málaga both take less than 2 hrs by train. Granada is closer to 3 hrs. The rail route from Ronda to the coast at Algeciras is spectacular. Five trains each day make the journey which takes just under 2 hrs.
It is difficult to take the train from London to Ronda in one go. But it is possible. Choose your trains carefully and it’s just possible to do it in less than 24 hrs, using Eurostar to Paris, a night train to Toulouse, then daytime trains via Barcelona and Córdoba. Most travellers heading to Ronda will, however, stop off for a night along the way.
