Must see · Bridge · Tourist Spot
Puente Nuevo is the newest and largest of three bridges that span the 120-m (390-ft) chasm that carries the Guadalevín River and divides the city of Ronda. For views of the 18th-century bridge itself, head to the Plaza Maria Auxiliadora. To learn more about how the bridge was built and why its chamber was used as a prison, go to the visitors’ center. Take in the views of the surrounding natural landscape, but be very careful near the edge.

  • The bridge is the most important highlight of the city. The best view at the bridge you get when you walk down in the gorge. When you stand on the bridge you can see where the path down starts (at...  more »
  • New bridge may be the top attraction in Ronda, and rightfully so. Make the time and effort to walk down to the back side of the bridge for incredible photographs. There are some sketchy walkways as...  more »
  • The main attraction in Ronda. The construction of the newest bridge (the one that stands today) was started in 1759 and took 34 years. To photograph it you have to go down under the bridge itself...  more »

  • This is the spot on the bridge to really enjoy Ronda. Absolutely fantastic views from both sides of the bridge. We took so many photos and videos that i cant stop watching. There is a close by parking so make sure to park and take your time to enjoy this heavenly view
  • A spectacular construction, amazing to think that it was built over 200 years ago. It is possible to walk down on the old city side, for the full view but we found that it was too hot to contemplate this on an late August afternoon. There is nice park & viewing balcony on the new city side.
  • Beautiful bridge. I think it probably best viewed from below but I think that would be long trek or drive. Still amazing. If you can get a guide to tell you the history it is very interesting.
  • You should know by now that is going to be hot. With that said, this place and the whole town are worth the visit. You have tapas, romantic walks, topical museums and houses. A nice place to spend a couple of hours and take some pictures.
  • The best place to view the Ronda bridge! There are some great hiking trails, some are currently closed due to construction, but some are still open. This is such an enjoyable view and a must see for those wanting to take in all that Ronda has to offer! If you come to Ronda, make sure to add this small hike to your trip!
