Doffing bandit-style headgear, brandishing guns and even firing them, it was Ronda’s attempt to bring history to life.
The town was certainly turned upside down for the three-day Ronda Romantica festival, in which its citizens and thousands from the nearby towns joined in the fun.

The event took place alongside the town’s Feria de Mayo agricultural fair, which at 500 years old is Spain’s second oldest.
