The town

Ronda is a mountaintop town set dramatically above a deep gorge, which separates the town’s circa-15th-century new town from its old town, dating to Moorish era. Since the the Roman times, Ronda has held an outsized role as a regional crossroads thanks to its scenic and strategic location at the lip of El Tajo Gorge. A stone bridge spanning over the gorge, Puente Nuevo, is one of its symbols, along with the new bullfight arena – dating from 18th century. The three bridges where aimed to create a bottleneck for armies, bandits and anyone else trying to travel through the area.
