Free Tour Legends and Mysteries of Ronda
We are a young team that left Spain in 2009 and we are in London to create this beautiful project. At the request of our "walkers" we grew up in Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Malaga, Cordoba and Budapest, teaching these cities to thousands of Spanish speakers. We are professional guides and we are madly in love with every corner of the cities we teach.
This tour of legends and mysteries begins inside the Lara Museum , in the Inquisition and Witchcraft rooms, where we will physically find the most persuasive methods used in the Middle Ages to obtain the confession of the accused or to absolve the sins committed. We will observe the bust of the best known inquisitor, Tomás de Torquemada. In addition, we will be able to see the recreation of different scenes that were part of the inquisitorial process and machines such as the Judas cradle , the barrel or the so-called iron maiden which was a kind of sarcophagus with nails where the accused was introduced. Other objects such as the chastity belt , the pendulum or the head crusher will be observed.
We will also reveal the history of the House of 98 on Calle La Bola.
We will head towards the Capilla de los Ajusticiados , which was the place of last prayers, wills and wishes of some executed men who were later executed before the public. Here, we will know the origin of the popular saying "hang the sambenito". We will continue our walk towards the Puente Nuevo , the great masterpiece of the Spanish architect Martín de Aldehuela.
Ronda is also known for being a land of bandits , so we will unravel some of the most notorious legends of these "Pirates of the Serranía". We will discover Casa Rúa, also known as Villa Apolo, which is located on the outskirts of the city and in a dilapidated state. This hides within its walls the disappearance of the little one of the family . In addition, we will reveal the most hidden secrets of La Sauceda , which in its day was a refuge for those who lived outside the law, and hides endless creepy stories .
We will also remember the chronicles of the nicknamed "bloody" King Abolemic , we will learn what tactics the Catholic Monarchs used to conquer Ronda and we will relive some of the most intense and tragic love stories lived in the town. During the activity, we will also travel to the Arab past of Ronda, and we will talk about the Sillón del Moro , the reconquest of Ronda , and the legend of the horseshoe on the Arab Bridge of the city.
