RONDA, the ‘City of Dreams’ turned back the clock last night as the streets were filled with travellers, horsemen and bandits.

Participants from most villages and towns across the Serrania de Ronda created a colourful cavalcade that was occasionally interrupted by a brief skirmishes as re-enactments were played out in front of thousands of onlookers.

The procession assembled in the  Barrio San Francisco before the parade wound its way over the famous bridge spanning the Tajo and round Ronda’s historic streets.

The event continues today (Saturday, 21 May) and tomorrow and includes re-enactments, horsemanship displays, markets and lots of food and drink stalls.
