Moorish palaces, flamenco and oranges. That’s the vague image I had of Seville that first made me want to visit Andalucia. The city didn’t disappoint in these respects, but it surprised me with how large and busy it was – it felt more urban than romantic. Seville was also hotter than we expected: the mercury hit 37°C as we walked atop the city’s famous Metropol Parasol and admired the rare treasures of Palacio de Lebrija.
Elevated high above a patchwork of fields and cracked in two by a deep gorge, the Andalucian city of Ronda looks like a painting by a fantasy artist. There’s a kind of magic in its hanging gardens, ancient caves and ruined Arab baths. Considering that this small, friendly city is just two hours from Seville, it’s a wonder that more people haven’t fallen under Ronda’s spell. Hugely underrated as it is, I’d never heard of Ronda before I began researching a holiday in southern Spain.
Ronda is a town in southern Spain, about two hours from Seville, and it is surely the most underrated place on the country. Sitting high above the patchwork of fields below, the town is split across an incredible gorge in a fantastical way. Besides the town’s three picturesque bridges, the crevice’s walls are populated with hanging gardens and ancient caves. It is truly a landscape imagined for fairytales. The bus journey from Malaga to Ronda passed quickly.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
