Ronda is famous for its location and the Guadalevín River which runs through the city. Due to this river there are three impressive bridges, Puente Romano ("Roman Bridge", also known as the Puente San Miguel), Puente Viejo ("Old Bridge", also known as the Puente Árabe or "Arab Bridge") and Puente Nuevo ("New Bridge"), span the gorge "El Tajo". The term "new" is a bit of a misnomer, as this bridge was built in 1751 and took until 1793 to complete. The New Bridge is the tallest of the bridges, towering 120 metres (390 ft) above the canyon floor (El Tajo).
The Plaza de toros de Ronda is the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain. It was built in 1784 in the Neoclassical style by the architect José Martin de Aldehuela, who also designed the New Bridge.
