El Tajo at Ronda was more spectacular than expected. The fact that we could walk over and under the huge Nuevo Porta (New Bridge) gave an even better insight into its height. Although not that old in terms of local history (late 1700s), it was still spectacular. It is even more impressive in that traffic still crosses this bridge, 100m... More

You must visit Ronda if you are staying anywhere within at least an hour of here. The most amazing architecture, history, people and simply stunning breathtaking views make it one of the best locations in Spain. Stand on the new bridge (still built by 1793) and look hundreds of feet below you and feel your legs turn to jelly, think... More

Seeing numerous pictures of this sight doesn't prepare you for experiencing it 'in the flesh' - well worth a visit.

There are spectacular views from El Tajo Gorge - all the year round, from hazy hot still summer days to snow-capped hills in winter.

El Tajo (the gorge) cuts Ronda in half and is spanned by 3 bridges in the town. It is best seen by doing a circle walk starting at Puento Nuevo, through the Moorish quarter, back across Puento Viejo, then take a hard left through the gardens above the gorge. For a totally different perspective, take the winding path down into... More

El Tajo is the gorge that splits the old town from the new town. There are three bridges that span it, the most famous being the Peunte Neuvo, which is the one with the picture postcard view. Many ways to explore the gorge. You can stand on the Peunte Neuvo itself, take the tour of the structure directly under the... More

A stunning little village worth the drive from Sancti Petri, in-fact one should dedicate a day to do the "trail of white villages". Beautiful architecture and landscape. In Ronda there's also a Bullfight arena, the oldest one in Spain! You can visit it, but I didn't do it... because I'm an animal lover ;-)

El Tajo is just amazing. Looking down from Puente Nuevo is as fantastic as looking up from the bottom of the gorge. We walked all the way down the gorge. The evening we arrived at the site, there were fantastic views of full moon rising from behind the mountains. Loved it .

Stunning, Amazing. Never tire of going.Our favourite place in Andalucia. When you have had your fill, go and have lunch at De Locos Tapas. (Tripadvisor insists I use more characters, but in truth there is nothing more to be said.)

It is not difficult to recommend this site. It is a wonderful example how humans can take advantage of geomorphology and geology to build a city that at the same time was well protected when was needed of protection, as well as make a breath taking view. Coming from Malaga it is also worth to note the Matoralles the natural... More
