4.8/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web
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. Plan to see Puente Nuevo and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ronda trip itinerary builder.

  • The old town of Ronda is separated from the rest of the town by a very dramatic deep gorge. It is well worth walking around to view the bridge from both sides of the gorge. The whole site of the town ...  read more »
  • A pleasant place to walk and enjoy the view. We have not paid anything to enter. We walked up to the waterfall and the way back is a little tired but worth it.

  • The views from Ronda are amazing. It is quite a drive up there but well worth it. Loads of places to eat and drink. It gets very hot in summer. You can easily spend 4-5 hours wondering around, gazing at the views and going down typical Spanish streets.
  • Amazing views of overlooking the valleys of Ronda from the top of Puente Nuevo and hike to the bottom for great perspective of scale and also the best photos. There is a nice Albergue (Los Molinos from memory) at the bottom of the walk down which serves my favourite beer (Reserva Alhambra) and has the best view in town.
  • we we're concerned that this was going to be a heavily infested tourist location however during November the hordes had gone and we were left with a great place to walk around. The bridge made for good viewing and the cave/steps cut into the gorge down to the river were fascinating - think that was the casa del ray or similar named place to head Well preserved and clean. Recommend November visiting and around 4pm for the lack of crowds and warm sun and then a vino after
  • Impressive bridge over the deep canyon in the middel of Ronda. Best view of the bridge from below. Must see!
  • My absolute favourite bridge of all time! This thing is a amazing and you can see it from several different vantage points
