Puente Nuevo, Ronda

4.8
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.

    This bridge takes your breath away it's so high above the ravine. You can walk along it, go by the side to the bullring and to museums on the other side.  more »

    Our first visit in Ronda was no disappointment fantastic view in addition to the Plains and, not least, to the bottom of the bridge. The city is built completely out of the rocks.

    The bridge is beautiful and impressive. Not worth paying the entrance to see the inside. We did this but was much better than the view from outside. There is also the possibility, parking outside the country, to access a path that passes under the bridge. We couldn't do it, but it must be worth.

    It would be hard to think of a more dramatic or scenic bridge. Rhonda is an amazing place to visit and the bridge is the highlight. If you are able its worth walking down underneath it and into the gorge itself.

    Ronda is my Spanish lover. Truly, a simple and quaint town but with views that can put anyone in a trance. The people are friendly and keen to go out of their way to help you. I adore the older part of the city.

    Dramatic bridge over a 300 foot gorge. Panoramic views of Andalucian countryside. Can be a bit overwhelming with tourists.

    This picturesque bridge crossing the gorge is absolutely amazing.The whole area has loads to see.Making your way down to the bottom is well worth it. You can explore down under it and looking up you can really see the size of it. It's a hot climb back to the top.
