On 8 March the roof of Santa María church, located in the heart of Ronda's historical centre, will be opened to the public.

The platform, which has been in construction since last summer, was designed by local architect Sergio Valadez. The Malaga Diocese has invested 100,000 euros in the project which is expected to attract even more tourists to Ronda.

Although the church was built in the late 14th century, the new wooden platform seems to blend in well with the Moorish style of the building. Visitors will access the roof via a winding staircase that dates from around 1675 and once reaching the top, they will be presented with spectacular views of Ronda and its mountainous surroundings.
