Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Malaga / Costa del Sol / Ronda / Puente Nuevo
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 is the spot on the bridge to really enjoy Ronda. Absolutely fantastic views from both sides of the bridge. We took so many photos and videos that i cant stop watching. There is a close by parking so make sure to park and take your time to enjoy this heavenly view
