Ronda, Spain

Ronda is one of the oldest cities in Spain. The Plaza de Toros (this bullring) is the oldest bullring in spain. Many bulls have been killed here in the past!

This is the new bridge that was built in the 18th century. The oldest bridge here in Ronda was first built in the 12th century by the Arabs, there are still some archaeological ruins left from them. On our hike down the gorge we saw some of the ruins. It was so much fun hiking!!!

On our hike down the gorge, their were caves like this along the way. Some of them were little holes like alley ways that went in between the mountain. I wanted to go explore in them, but no one would come with me! ;o)

This is a breathtaking view of the famous Puente Nuevo (New Bridge built in the 1800s) It goes straight across the mighty gorge that we hiked down to the foot of the cliffs.
