Additional Links

The New Bridge
The Puente Nuevo is over 200 years old.

The New Bridge connects the old city (known as the La Ciudad) with the newer parts of Ronda and its suburbs. Taking some 42 years to complete, the bridge dates to 1751. The bridge dramatically transverses the El Tajo canyon.

To view the New Bridge, as seen in the photographs here, you will need to find the Plaza Maria Auxiliadora; it is not far from the Palacio de Mondragón. At the south end of the Plaza Maria Auxiliadora there is a pathway leading down to the Arco del Cristo, a deteriorating city gate which dates from the 13th century.

 

Photos below - the view as we started down the path to Arco del Cristo. Lower level photo is of the Arco del Cristo.

In 2006 the path to Arco del Cristo was being converted from a dirt trail to a walker friendly path. During our visit the path improvements had not been completed all the way to the Arco del Cristo. In October 2006 it was still possible to continue past the Arco del Cristo but the path became more onerous.
