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. Plan to see Puente Nuevo and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ronda trip itinerary builder.

  • Beautiful bridge with an incredible view, great architecture and many places around for coffee, drinks and food, don't miss this jewel of the town... I wanted to go to the water at the bottom but couldn't find the way... too bad
  • Stunning architecture. Picturesque mountain town. Lovely gardens and "secret mine"... Well worth a visit.
  • Really nice views of the town and surrounding areas. Although, during summer it is very hot in the area, so it is not possible to stay outside for a longer time.
  • Beautiful views and great photo opportunities! Ronda is great place to spend a day. Highly recommended!
  • Seeing this sight makes you believe in the beauty and pureness in the world. Savor what you see down the bridge to the Andalusian countryside...And take a lot of pictures! Of note, this was gorgeous even on a cloudy day.
