Puente Nuevo, Ronda

Bridge Lookout Must See
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.

  • We stayed in Ronda so were lucky enough to visit this Bridge several times during our visit. The worst time to visit it is during the day where you have to push, shove and dodge the selfie stick being...  more »
  • Make sure you're either there early before all the busloads of tourists arrive either ah coastal end of the day when they are away. At night, the bridge is illuminated so definitely worth a moment. Around there are several restaurants overlooking the bridge, of course, the prices of the menu there to:) You can also walk to 2 sides around it so you on a somewhat lower place from a little park beautiful view of the bridge.

  • By Ronda's bridges, ye shall know it. By their names, though -- well, that's another matter. Puente Nuevo (New Bridge) isn't new. Puente Viejo (Old Bridge) isn't the oldest. And Puente Romano really i...  more »

  • What a Bridge! Sitting at appx 120 metres high this marvel of engineering provides the perfect backdrop for many a photo. With restaurants all around and a small exhibition inside, I would highly recommend visiting Ronda to see this site. We did not pay to visit the inside and took the opportunity to visit both day and night and marvel in its design. There is a trail that runs on the South East side of Ronda which if followed correctly can get you access to the river and eventually bottom of the bridge. From here it is even more outstanding. Wear appropriate footwear and prepare for an adventure.
  • Really beautiful town, the architecture is wonderful with great views over the surrounding area. There are so many small streets with a arrange of different food types to try. Excellent Tapas. Bull ring was really impressive also even if it is not your cup of tea. Well worth a visit.
  • Spectacular sight. Worth walking around to get different views. There is a path down to the river that you can take for free. Give yourself some time and bring water. The palace on the other side is cheap to go in and has stairs down. Nice to see too.
  • Incredibly scenic views offered by the old stone bridge. You're able to see the vineyards, olive gardens, the other, smaller bridges connecting the city, the river deep below you, and the beautiful mountain range. The plaza offers great opportunities for dinner and even just a quick cup of coffee and a sandwich. A must see when passing through Ronda.
  • A wonderful place to see. Amazing how much history is involved in this place. Parking is not easy and reaching the place is quite a trip, but it is worth it. After you see it, you will understand why
