The History of Ronda

According to some historians, the Bastuli Celts gave the place the name Arunda.

Arunda and Acinipo, sometimes called Ronda La Vieja or “Old Ronda”, were settled by the Romans.

Acinipo was one of the most important cities in the Roman province of Baetica and is mentioned by Pliny and Ptolemy.

The theatre, one of the most important in Roman Spain, is one of the most remarkable ruins of the city.

The Romans built the castle of Laurus in Arunda, and on which the Muslim citadel was later built.

Following the Visigothic era, Ronda rose to prominence under Muslim authority when Arunda adopted the name Izna Rand Onda.

It was one of the most significant fortifications in Andalusia.

Omar, a wealthy descendant of the Visigothic family, led a uprising of the Muladi, who were once Christians and converted to Islam.

Omar built a fortress at Bobastro, thought to be in or near the Ronda Mountains.

From this fortress, Omar brought cities such as Archidona, Ecija, Baena and Lucena under his rule.

Until his loss in 891, his control and status among the Muladi Muslims progressively increased.

He sought an alliance with the Arabs of northern Africa and the Christians of the northern Spanish peninsula.

At this point he lost the trust of many of his followers and converted to Christianity, he passed away in 916.

The city joined the Caliphate of Cordoba after Bobastro fell, as a result of Abd-Al Rahman III, defeating Omar’s sons.
