Ronda: Pedro Romano Festival and early-Sept Sevilla/Granada feedback

Jump to last reply

We're going on a family vacation to Prague and Croatia with our two adult sons the last 10 days of August. Mr. Crosscheck and I have 6 free days for a train/road trip before we need to be in Madrid for 5 days. We know the weather might be brutal, but we're thinking of 1-2 nights Sevilla,1 night Granada (just to see the Alhambra), then relaxing for 3-4 nights in Ronda or another relatively temperate rural destination. We speak fluent Spanish and have both traveled often to Spain but neither of us has been to the south, and it's high on our list.

Turns out the Pedro Romano Festival will be going on in Ronda. It culminates in a famous bullfight, which we would miss, but a few days earlier there is a parade with Goyaesque costumes, music and other merriment.

Would appreciate feedback about this festival from those who have attended. We spent a month in Catalonia several years ago and loved the various ferias - will the Ronda one be too rowdy? We love merriment, but we also were looking forward to a relaxing rural retreat.
