The only way to enter the town is through the bridge. History of old Arab settlement with many wonderful buildings, nice panorama views, restaurant with fine food and many more to see. If you go to Malaga never forget to pay a one day visit to this town.

I have visited the Tajo Gorge on 2 occasions, travelling by train from Algeciras. The train journey itself is quite interesting as the train weaves its way through the mountainous terrain making occasional stops at remote Spanish villages. You can make a similar journey by train from Malaga ( about 2+ hours) or by bus from Marbella. The town of... More

El Tajo bridge in Ronda is breathtaking and beautiful both in itself and the view from it. If you suffer from vertigo it is advised to admire it from the side. If you don't mind it is great fun to look down into the ravine, river and waterfalls, and not least the views of the mountains surrounding Ronda. The old... More

This gorgeus view in the middle of Ronda is really worth to visit. We walked across the edges, around the city and of course at the old bridge Puente Nueve and enjoyed very much the breath-taking sights. I think Ronda is one of the world's most beautiful places and really want to go there again.

This gorge and the amazing 'Puente nuevo' is unique. The views are stupendous from above and below. Well worth the walk down to the bottom, where you'll be able to take a taxi back to the top

Everyone visiting Ronda should explore and walk the paths and Bridge and view the magnificent Tajo Gorge. You should also visit the apparently largest Bullring in the world, said to be used only once a year when the King of Spain and his entourage would visit.

Coming from Ronda you can do great walks down to the river and back up. Signposts are missing altogether, but you cant get lost with such landmarks as the bridge and the river. You can see them and hear the waterfall for miles. The views are spectacular, the paths are rocky and steep and safety barriets are broken or were... More

This gorge is the heart of Ronda and should be explored. There is a lovely parkside path from Jardines de Cuenca north of new bridge that is an easy walk down to the older bridges and Arab baths. It's beautiful and not to be missed

Everybody who comes to Ronda probably already have seen a Photo of famous bridge, but the views for el tajo are so nice! You can also go down with many ways and everything for FREE.
