This annual event is a re-enactment of the romantic past era of Ronda. This fair was once the most famous in Andalucia, beginning in 1501 as a cattle fair. During the 19th Century, the fair became a meeting point for European and North American travelers. Bandits, smugglers, writers and craftsmen all came in search of adventure. Many adventurers hoped to meet the famous bandits, some would even be ready carrying a small amount of money or valuables. Not meeting the bandits could be quite a disappointment to the traveler.
Some of the famous bandits of the era include: El Tempranillo (1805-1833), El Pernales (1879-1907) and Pasos Largos (1873- 1934)
Today “Romantic Ronda” seeks to recreate the historical atmosphere with costumes and markets typical of the era.
