When driving in Ronda, pay attention to the opening hours of the “New Bridge” (El Puente Nuevo). The main road that crosses through Ronda goes over this bridge. Because the bridge forms part of Ronda’s historical centre, traffic over the bridge is restricted. Between 10:00 – 13:30 and 17:00 – 20:00, cars are not allowed to cross the bridge unless they have a permit.
There is no parking at the Festival location. Please park elsewhere in the centre, or on the edge of town. You could walk from there or use one of the many taxis that are driving around in the city. (Use this number if you want to call a taxi: +34 952 874 080.)
In normal streets, you can park for free. You might need to drive around for a bit to find a place, as traffic in the centre of Ronda can get busy and parking is difficult at certain times. Do not park in the restricted areas (marked with yellow kerb stones and road signs), as your vehicle might by towed away. Blue lines or blue kerb stones generally mean a paid parking zone: Look for the ticket machine and check the hours.
Another option is to use the paid car parks. The car park closest to Ronda International Guitar Festival is the underground car park at “Plaza Socorro” (400 metres from the Festival location). You could reserve your place for this car park online on the website of “Parclick”.
