Spain On The Edge

The town of over thirty thousand people is built either side of a dizzying ravine. There are three bridges which span the gap between the sides. First there is the Puente Romano or Roman Bridge. There is the Puente Viejo or Old Bridge, and then comes the Puente Nuevo (New Bridge – which is the name it was given when it was completed in 1793).

Ronda is not the only place in Spain where people live on the edge (as it were, and without making the country sound like a single, giant, Almodovar movie). If we move towards the French border and visit the Catalan town of Castellfollit de la Roca.
