“Watch your hat!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

This elegant bridge spans the gorge which dissects Ronda, and forms an excellent viewpoint to see both the rock formations at the bottom, and the countryside beyond. The architect who built it lost his life whilst reaching for his hat which had blown off as he leaned over the edge to admire his handiwork.

“Hemingway's Heart”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Hemingway spent a lot of time here. It's the center of Bullfighting. One of the oldest places in Spain with a bullring. It also happens to be extremely high and is a great place for honeymooners to take pictures. This bridge is the reason people come here now. You can see it from the top or the bottom. To see it half-way up you need to be fit. You can tour it's insides and catwalks for a price.

“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Looking out over the Tajo is a treat both during the day when you can enjoy the masterful views or at night when it is beautifully lit. A wonderful alternative view of Spain.

“WOW!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This really is remarkable. How was it built? People were so taken by this bridge over the gorge that they were standing in the traffic to take photos. The road to get here is long and winding, not for the faint of heart. If you are at all uncomfortable driving on narrow winding roads find another way to get there. We were in Spain for 2 months and Ronda was one of our favorite and most memorable places. We were there on a chilly day in March and it was still busy. As well as the many attractions there are lots of places to eat and buy souvenirs.
