Just a very special geological structure, especially with the town sitting right on its edge. A lot of activity right around the gorge and the bridge is spectacular at night---not too bad during the day.

spectacular site - the bridge is pure midevil time and the view is fantastic. I recommend also walking around in the area to se the bridge from the lower side - but bring good shoes, flip flops are difficult to use due to steep hill sides. We were there in May, which is perfect temperature-wise.

The views of the 3 bridges is remarkable and the engineering work that was required to undertake the building of them. The views over the valleys is breath taking. Not recommended for anyone with difficulty walking due to the cobbles and steep steps.

Simply magnificent! If you have the legs for it go down the stairs to see the bridge without the tourists from below. Just 300+ stairs below the village.

Absolutely stunning views. The combination of natural beauty and ancient engineering is remarkable. We had a wonderful time exploring and wandering around the gorge and town.

We did the Via Ferrata del Tajo de Ronda (a climb up the gorge) as a family group of six with SportMountain. A via ferrata, if you are not familiar with the term (as I wasn’t) is a climb up steep steps and steel rungs. You wear a safety harness and hard hat. It may sound difficult but I would... More

Amazing bridge spanning a huge gorge in the middle of Ronda. It separates the old town from the new town, both parts are worth visiting. The gorge is a natural wonder, the bridge is an engineering achievement, and the place as a whole has never really gotten the attention it probably deserved. I much prefer it that way, it errs...

The gorge and its 3 bridges are stunning. There are several very different viewpoints. You need to have good footwear to venture off the main paths.

The tour from the center of the town across the bridge into the residential area was awesome. I enjoyed every minute of it and took some amazing photos and ate some outstanding food. i was las there in the spring of 2012 an hope to go back again someday with the family.
