Roman Ruins of Acinipo - Setenil de las Bodegas

DAYHIKES
Date: Thursday, 3rd October 2019

Hiking from the archaeological site Acinipo, known as "Ronda la Vieja", the old Ronda, to Setenil de las Bodegas, the famous cave-village

Acinipo-Setenil

We first visit the archaeological site, which perches on a ridge near Ronda. Due to its strategic location and the fertility of the surrounding farmland, Acinipo was an important city in Roman times. At almost 1000 meters above sea level, we can enjoy an incredibly impressive panoramic view around Acinipo. 

From there we walk on country lanes through olive groves, farmland and small oak forests on a gently undulating and very easy to walk way to Setenil de las Bodegas. 

Setenil de las BodegasThe village of Setenil is famous for its unique houses, carved  in natural rocky outcrops in the middle of the town. We take the time to visit the village and enjoy a break with tapas or a lunch (optional and not included) before returning.
