Puente Viejo (Old Bridge), Ronda
Despite its name Old Bridge, it is newer than the Roman Bridge (Puente Romano). The 33 feet bridge is a basic single-arch and 102 feet above the river bed. The bridge parapet niches and balconies were redone in an 18th-century renovation. There are four viewing balconies mid-span, and the road is paved.
On the north side of the Old Bridge is a stepped garden leading up to the New Bridge. On the south side is the ornate Gate of Philip V. On the east side are the remains of the 13th-century Arab Baths ("Hammams").
