This is an easy, circular walk from the southern, old part of Ronda town. The Tajo del Abanico is a hidden gem - a limestone rock gorge which ends at a towering rock named “The Fan” due to its unusual shape, formed from many centuries of wind and rain erosion of the limestone rock cliffs.

The route takes us down past farmland, olive groves and almond trees. We enter holm oak forest and drop down to cross a small stream. A short climb brings us to the remains of a mediaeval cobblestone pathway, now seemingly "in the middle of nowhere". The pathway leads us into the valley gorge, where we find a low cave and the huge, fan-shaped rock which gives the gorge its name. We return through the quiet valley and past beautiful rock formations to re-enter Ronda via one of its oldest districts, the Barrio San Francisco. Here we find a bustling plaza, the mediaeval Almocobar Gate and church of Espirtitu Santu.

Had a most pleasant afternoon's walking with Heather through Ronda valley, who was a wonderful guide - really knowledgeable on the area, pointing out interesting facts. The scenery was beautiful and the walk through quiet lanes and country paths. Ending at the Bodega for wine tasting which I would highly recommend.

As we were outdoors and didn't require any transport it was lovely not to require any Covid related sanitation but Heather was very diligent in ensuring we hydrated along the way as it was a hot day.

If back in the region I will definitely take another Hike with Hike & Bike.
