The gorge and the bridge

The town is built across the gorge of the Guadalevín River. The gorge, also referred to as “El Tajo de Ronda” is 40 meters wide and up to 120 metres deep at some points. The Tajo divides the city of Ronda in two parts and it has 3 bridges that span it. Most noteworthy is the New Bridge, “El Puente Nuevo”, built at the end of the 18th century. This is the biggest and most famous of the three bridges and is an icon for the city of Ronda.
