Central Electric Ruins

Ronda is such a breathtaking location filled with a great mixture of natural beauty, stunning architecture, and fascinating history. It is a hiker’s dream to be let loose on this graduated topography. The ruins of the old Central Electrical hydroelectricity plant are hidden just beyond the scenic trails and have been reclaimed by vegetation, which makes this verdant treasure a challenge to uncover.

On the south side of the El Tajo canyon, east of the Puente Nuevo, once stood a hydroelectricity plant powered by the Guadalevín River. This power plant was originally constructed sometime in the early 1900s to harness the power of the river and provide electricity to the town and surrounding region. It later fell into disuse and was abandoned.
