    • Ronda Today

      This one made me laugh, in Ronda the banks are open Monday to Friday 09.00 till 14.00

      On public holidays and fiestas, they probably won’t open but if they do from 10.00 till 12.00

      Spanish banks work to very simple opening times, a good rule of thumb, if the door is closed so is the bank, LOL
