A nice bridge at the bottom of the gorge near the Arab Baths. A stroll from the old town gate Puerta de Almocabar to the Arab baths and just 10 metres to this bridge gives good views of the old city wall, the baths, the Roman bridge and then walk uphill past Puente Viejo 16th century bridge to Mirador de Cuenca. Time well spent covering many good sites.

Just as Puente Viejo ("Old Bridge") isn't Ronda's oldest bridge (Puente Romano is), Puente Romano ("Roman Bridge") isn't Roman. It's just called that because there MAY have been a Roman bridge here once. The most accurate alternate name? Puente San Miguel, because Puente Romano does lead to the old San Miguel quarter.

TIPS:

* For a nice view of Puente Romano, stand on Puente Viejo.

* You can get another nice view of Puente Romano from Jardines de Cuenca, where it's possible to frame Puente Romano in the arch of Puente Viejo.

This bridge is to be found at the lower level of the city on Calle Molino de Alarcon where the river Guadalevin passes under it. It is a very simple structure, composed of a single, centre arch supported by solid piles. From this bridge the river links the Puente Viejo and the Puente Nuevo. Also, just around the corner from the ‘Roman/Moorish’ Bridge are the Arab Baths and, on the other side of the road, steps that enable you to walk up to the Puente Viejo. There are good views of either bridge from the other. The ‘Roman’ Bridge still carries traffic so remember to breathe in when sharing the bridge with a vehicle.

Although commonly referred to as the Roman Bridge, this bridge has nothing in its construction that indicates this. However, it is more than likely that there was a bridge there during the Roman period, since crossing the river by bridge here is just about the only place that the city could be accessed from the North.

What you can see today is also not entirely Moorish, but there are Moorish parts evident within its structure, probably built originally around the 11th Century when Ronda was an independent Muslim kingdom, called a Taifa. More recently, the bridge has been repaired several times due to repeated flooding of the river Guadalevin.

The denomination ‘The Bridge’ was also given to the gate between the Hermitage and the Arab Baths, which served as an entrance gate to the old Artisan Quarter and an area that was originally encompassed by the city walls at that time, but was destroyed at the beginning of the 20th Century.

If you have enough time while you're in Spain, it is definitely worth a trip to at least a few of the White Villages; Ronda is one of them. These towns are not nearly as well known as other major cities in Spain but they should be! They are so picturesque and give you an entirely different impression of life in Spain. The Roman Bridge is ancient and beautiful. It connects the 2 parts of Ronda to each other. Many great photo opps!!

there is a trail that leads you to the view point of the bridge as shown in the picture. It definitely worth it. There is also a museum/palace near the entry of the trail.

Down by the Roman baths, this is a neat stop, one of so many great spots to take pictures in Ronda. Go to Ronda, you will not regret it.

Ronda has three famous bridges: Puente Arabe (Roman Bridge) Puente Viejo (Old Bridge) and Puente Nuevo (New Bridge). We visited all of them. I think it’s worth. The most popular is the last one, but this historical one (from 16th century) is interesting, too. We enjoyed the view with the Arab bath and landscapes.
