Ronda is a city located in a mountaintop in Malaga province, Andalucia. The city is built to the edge of beige stone cliffs which attracts visitors from all over the world. They come for the new Bridge name Puente Nuevo, the most famous landmark.
New & Town part of Ronda
The Puente Nuevo is an architectural gem built in the late 18th century, it took almost 40 years in the construction to build the span bridging the 98m El Tajo Gorge. The gorge separates the city into two-part, old and new.
Hidden Gem between Granada & Seville
We are on our way to Granada from Seville and Ronda make a great stop between these two cities. Ronda city is small but it is a hidden gem in the Andalucia region. Since the city is small, you can actually walk around on foot.
White houses built at the Cliff Tajo Gorge
See from the bottom of the El Tajo Gorge
The best views of the Puente Nuevo are from the bottom of the El Tajo Gorge. We were shooting the picture from the top where Rondo city is. Go hike to the bottom of the gorge and it took about 30 mins if time permits. The stairs down to the El Tajo Gorge can be found at Plaza de María Auxiliadora.
Street Named after GT video Games Creator
I accidentally saw a street named after a Japanese guy, Kazunori Yamauchi in the busiest district of Ronda. Who is this guy? He is the creator of Grand Turismo series game or GT, a racing simulation video games by Polyphony Digital. The beautiful surroundings of Ronda were used in the game. Hence the Mayor of Ronda honored the street name to this Japanese guy.
There are many viewpoints of the Puente Nuevo but Mirador de Aldehuela is the busier than other viewpoints. You may want to visit the oldest bullring – Plaza de Toros de Ronda.
