Ronda Religious Institutions

Not many minarets can lay claim to being named for a Christian saint - here's the San Sebastian minaret, which belonged originally to a 14th-century mosque, converted into a Christian church after the reconquest; only the minaret remains

Nuestra Señora del Socorro

Iglesia Santa Maria de Major

The older and newer parts of the structure not quite precisely knitted together

Probably the original entrance

Convent on Plaza Duquesa de Parcent

One of the convents in Ronda holds a relic of St. Teresa of Avila, her hand; oh, and they also sell cookies...

The Salesians of Don Bosco, started in the 1840s and with missions all over the world, has a large headquarters here, with a beautiful garden
