D5 Ronda and bullfighting, Marbella and her beaches (200 km)
Free time to visit Ronda, one of Spain’s most ancient cities and cradle of bullfighting: divided by the Tajo gorge there are two parts to the city, the compact « Ciudad », or old town perched on the cliff top, and the « Mercadillo » or more modern part. After lunch we drive to the exclusive seaside resort of Marbella, with its chic Puerto Banus harbour full of super yachts. Back to the hotel for dinner and overnight.

Its most famed for its impressive Mosque-Cathedral, with its arched stone pillars inside, but also the old district, with its whitewashed houses, and the Alcazar fortress.
