Puente Nuevo

Puente Nuevo – Guadelvin River in El Tajo

During my trip in Malaga, Spain, I decided to check out a neighboring city about an hour away which was Ronda.  This city is known for its mountainous area and beautiful views.  It was my first time visiting the city and there are a couple of things I enjoyed, and I would like to share them to you.

1.  Puento Nuevo, “new bridge”, this bridge crosses the Guadelvin river in El Tajo and it connects the city of Ronda.  This bridge also provides amazing views of the 120 meter deep gorge of El Tajo.

2.  Central Plaza.  The central plaza in Ronda is a great place to find restaurants and shops.  You can pretty much find cafes nearby and other specialty stores.  Also, the plaza has a particular statue (photo above) that caught my attention, this statue is considered to be an Andalusian symbol (more info).

Plaza de toros

3.  Plaza de toros (Bullring).  This bullring is considered to be the birthplace of modern bullfighting.  You can also visit the stables and museum that are part of the bullring complex.  It was definitely the highlight of my visit to Ronda, as it is my first time ever visiting and learning more about the history of bullfighting.

Tapas

4.  Tapas.  Whenever I visit a new city in Spain, one of my favorite things to do is try out their tapas (variety of appetizers).  This one one in particular is from a cafe-restaurant called ‘Cafeteria Puerta 2’, it is located around the central plaza.  Their tapas included a variety of seafood, meat, veggies, and fries, priced at about 10 euros.
