About the guru Paseando

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.

About the tour

This tour of legends and mysteries begins in the Church of La Merced de Ronda, where the first dark legend about the shirt of the Virgin of Peace will be told. We will also reveal the history of the House of 98 on Calle La Bola.

We will make our way to the Chapel of the Executed, which was the place of last prayers, wills and wishes of some executed that were subsequently executed before the public. Here, we will know the origin of the popular saying “hang the sambenito”.

We will continue our walk to the New Bridge, the great masterpiece of the Spanish architect Martín de Aldehuela. Ronda is also known as a land of bandits, so we will unravel some of the most famous legends of these "Pirates of the Serrania".

We will discover Casa Rúa, also known as Villa Apolo, which is located on the outskirts of the city and in a dilapidated state. It 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 was once a refuge for those who lived outside the law, and hides a host of spooky stories.

We will also remember the chronicles of the nickname "bloodthirsty" King Abolemic, we will know 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 city's Arab Bridge.
