NEW views of Ronda could soon be possible if a project to open more of Santa Maria La Mayor church to the public is approved.
Although the town, one of the most visited places in Andalucia, has been photographed from almost every possible angle and images have been seen around the world, the project local architect Sergio Valadez is preparing aims to offer a new viewpoint.
The tallest building in the old part of town, located next to the town hall, the church was ordered to be built on the site of a mosque between the 14th and 17th centuries by the Catholic Monarchs, Isabel and Ferdinand.
The heritage site boasts a stone, spiral staircase dating back to 1675, which is currently only used for maintenance purposes but, if the project is approved, will provide visitors access to the upper areas of the church, opening up breathtaking new views both inside and outside the building.
Work is hoped to begin this year and will take approximately three months to complete.
