Puente Nuevo Bridge/El Tajo is a must see when visiting Ronda. A great feat of engineering... Fantastic views from the bridge and the surrounding area. If your scared of heights I would suggest not to look over the edge as it is a steep drop.. Plenty of restaurants and bars within the area. Well worth a visit.. would certainly recommend.

We loved Ronda and El Tajo! It is worth walking down the path to see El Tajo and the new bridge from down the hill, absolute amazing experience. We were however disappointed with some rubbish and nit enough attention to tracks , everyone would be easy contributing a euro or two to improve the cleanness and maintenance !

The center of Ronda is split by this huge gap, it is strange to see houses just at the edge of the gap, you wonder how they are build and stay this way. Reading other experiences it might be a better experience when you walk to the bottom of the valley which we did not do.

This gorge is one of the attractions that is a must see while visiting Ronda. It is worth walking down to the viewing platforms near the old bridge down past the Arab Baths. You will get a different perspective that really does complete the view and experience.

We were able to take a jeep ride down but others did walk down! Wow, even more amazing than just looking from the top. Countryside is spectacular from the bridge and the ride to Ronda is lots of fun from the coast as the highway hugs the mountain.

Simply spectacular! Ronda is a real surprise and overwhelming probably in part due to the Gorge. The highest bridge in all Spain.

This beautiful gorge is well worth the visit, for anyone who is going on a holiday in Costa Del Sol, it might be a long ride to inland but it's soooo worth it! We went with a tour, although not a big fan of how the tour was organised -they give you 3 hours to spend in the place!- massive... More

Spectacular views from the bridge which has become a symbol of Ronda, cross the bridge a couple of times to really get the best of views. You can also take in the views by stopping for a drink at one of the restaurants by the bridge.

The Gorge is Ronda's main attraction. Cross the Puente Nuevo over El Tajo back and forth as many times as you want to observe from every angle. Obvious attraction.

El Tajo (pronouced taho) is the name of the gorge which runs through the town of Ronda. The superb bridge which spans the gorge is 120 m high and connects the old town with the new. There are three bridges, the most famous, and the symbol of Ronda) is the "New bridge" (puente nuevo). You can descend into the gorge... More
