Unbelievable. Best views are in evening with the setting sun. Spectacular pictures. Can't believe this bridge is so old. Amazing piece of construction

The Guadalevín River runs through the city of Ronda, dividing it in two and carving out the steep, 100 plus meters deep "El Tajo" canyon upon which the city perches. This makes for stunning views and dramatic scenery best viewed from around the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge), down in the canyon / gorge itself, and from the vista points at... More

Hike down 300' to bottom of gorge. Worth the hike to water falls, we got some wonderful pictures. If hiking down in the summer go early, the heat can be dawnting in the middle of the day coming back up. But I am a whimp and do not handle heat well.

This is worth the stop. Parking is a few blocks away but the small town is filled with places to eat and walk around. We took at least 100 photos.

El Tajo is truly impressive, a challenge for those with a fear of heights and with a rather dark history, best seen from el Puente Neuve and Alameda del Tajo (the park built from swearing fines! but currently work in the park prevents access).

At the bus station in Fuengirola you can buy a 'do it yourself' ticket on the public bus service to Ronda, a beautiful historic town in the mountains behind Marbella. On the opposite side of the ticket counter sits an English lady who will sell you a reasonably priced tour on an air conditioned coach should you feel your Espanol... More

This part of Ronda is shocking in its beauty and appeal. We spent a bit more of the budget to have a hotel looking at the bridge and it was so worth it - not many views like this! We hiked to the bottom, found a charming hotel with very reasonable pricing on the beer we refuelled with (be careful... More

It was a great day we spent in Ronda, while visiting Andalusia. El Tajo is breathtaking and should not be missed. It a true jewel. We took our teenagers and they loved it!

Fantastic place to just look at wonderful views. A lovely mountain town to visit for a break from the beach, friendly and charming with lots to see and do. Free tourist trails from tourist information.
