Everybody goes to Ronda mainly to see the bridges, so rom me this postcard ronda is small, charming city the new part is on the left and one can make wonderful walk near the cliffs with breathtaking views over the valley There are some balconies over the precipies not a plce for someone with vertigo (as me :)) )n the right side is small beautiful old part There is a path going down and I followed it to make some shots up the bridge
yesterday I had a nice lazy day First I visitged Albaicin during a day and then I went by bus to Ronda. I had a room for myself in a cozy hostel very near the bridge and delicious gazpacho for supper.

Three bridges, Puente Romano , Puente Viejo ("Old Bridge", and Puente Nuevo ("New Bridge"), span the canyon. The term "nuevo" is a bit of a misnomer, as the building of this bridge commenced in 1751 and took until 1793 to complete. The Puente Nuevo is the tallest of the bridges, towering 120 metres (390 ft) above the canyon floor, and all three serve as some of the city's most impressive features. The former town hall, which sits next to the Puente Nuevo, is the site of a parador, and has a view of the Tajo canyon.

The ‘Corrida Goyesca’ is a unique and historical bullfight that takes place once a year in Ronda in the Plaza de toros de Ronda, the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain.
