El Tajo, Ronda

4.9
#3 of 11 in Nature in Costa del Sol
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
The town of Ronda seems impossibly perched atop El Tajo, a 130 m (427 ft) canyon yielding views at once spectacular and a little bit frightening. Completed in 1793, the Puente Nuevo spans the gorge, its old age lending it splendor, while making the prospect of crossing slightly unnerving at the same time. If you’re up for a hike, walk the path from town down into the gorge and pass under this bridge, the tallest of three. Stop in the bridge’s small museum, detailing its history and that of the town.
