“Very Impressive Bridge in Ronda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

The sheer size of El Tajo is amazing. I've never seen another bridge like this one in the world. We watched the sunset from El Tajo and it was absolutely magical. Ronda is one of the most charming and beautiful cities I've visited. It would definitely be a shame to skip this attraction. It's free and it only takes a few minutes to soak in its beauty.

“Spectacular ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

The gorge is spectacular and there are numerous vantage points to take photographs.

If you go down to the bottom, especially at the end of summer as we did, be prepared for the smell!!! A local resident told me that the population would dump rubbish in the gorge and during the dry summer this would build up.


All in all this is well worth a visit if you are in the area

“Spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

The canyon in Ronda is impossible to miss! However it is a must see unless you really don't like heights. I think the best views are from the terraces of the Parador Hotel near the Ponte Nueva bridge (where you can at least enjoy a drink or a meal) or from the corner diagonally opposite the hotel on the bridge. It's certainly very impressive.

“A Truly Natural Wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

It's not often that the reality lives up to the hype provided by the tourist guides. But, El Tajo..Wow! Looking down the gorge from el Puente Nuevo for the first time is mind-blowing. Its difficult to appreciate the scale of the 130 metre drop down to the river meandering below. Watching the resident birds gliding around the cliffs can hypnotise but it is impossible not to imagine the horrors which were reputed to have taken place from the bridge in times past.
