Alameda del Tajo

Lined with trees, this distinctive avenue and park in Ronda delights visitors and residents with historic beauty, ancient trees, statues and spectacular views. 

The Alameda del Tajo, previously known as Alameda de San Carlos, is a lovely path and botanical garden in the Spanish province of Málaga. It was built in the 19th century next to the cliffs of the famous Ronda canyon El Tajo. Walk along this leafy avenue and enjoy the quiet presence of gigantic tress and rich natural surroundings.

Discover the five different landscaped avenues that form the Alameda. They all lead to a large area from where you can see nice views of the rocky gorge Tajo de Ronda and the Serranía de Ronda (Ronda district). Stroll along the shaded avenue, absorbing the views of an amazing array of trees, some more than 200 years old. Try to spot the renowned cedro del Himalaya (Himalayan cedar), the gigantic pino piñonero (stone pine) and the acacia de tres espinas (honey locust). Find Asa de la Caldera, a spectacular rock formation in the area, and take stunning photos.

While you are on Tajo’s tree-lined avenue, be sure to notice its lovely statues. You’ll find the Monumento a la Dama Goyesca (Monument of the Goyaesque Lady), a full-scale figure of a woman dressed in the traditional costume of Ronda. This picturesque bronze statue was created by Francisco Parra, a well-known Sevillian sculptor. Nearby, discover the Estatua de Pedro Romero, a memorial for the bullfighter Pedro Romero, and the piece of work called Ángeles (Angels).

Explore the different paths around the Alameda del Tajo. Find the Paseo de los Ingleses (English Path), a cliff-edge path that leads to the well-kept gardens of the Hotel Catalonia Reina Victoria Wellness & Spa. Follow Camino de los Tilos trail lined with scented lime trees. Each tree once had an inscription with the name of a Ronda baby born on the same day as the tree was planted. Stop at the modern Teatro Municipal Vicente Espinel, a pleasant theater located in a modern building with exposed brick, columns and large crystal windows. Discover the adjoining park Jardines de Blas Infante, with an open-air auditorium and spectacular views.
