In our travels, Mr. M and I visited the lovely and amazing town of Ronda, in the Spanish province of Malaga. It is an ancient village high in the mountains that is divided into two parts by a river in a deep ravine, called El Tajo Gorge.
To join the two parts of the village there are three bridges, the most recently built one is called Punta Nuevo, or the New Bridge, which is a bit of a misnomer. The bridge was built between the years of 1751 and 1793. It is an astounding creation that rises 120 meters (390 feet) above the canyon floor and is a beautiful piece of architecture.
Much of the city lies on the precipitous edge of the canyon.
In addition to this wonderful and amazing aspect of the city there are many other interesting things to see in Ronda. There are churches:
