Sights and Activities

Puente Nuevo

The Puente Nuevo (New Birdge) was built between 1751 and 1793, to span the Tajo Canyon. It replaced an older bridge (know as the Puente Viejo). Under the bridge a prison was built. The bridge is one of the most photographed sights in Andalusia.

Plaza de Toros

Since the 18th century bullfighting became more popular in Ronda. The led to the built of the Plaza de toros de Ronda, which is the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain that is still used. It was built in 1784 in the Neoclassical style by the architect José Martin de Aldehuela, who also designed the Puente Nuevo. Nowadays the ring is only used 4 times a year, as the fights are becoming less popular. In the Plaza de Toros is a museum.

Post

If you want to post a card, you can head to the post office (Correos). The Spanish post is not yet as efficient as colleagues in other countries so receiving a card can take a bit longer than the number of days that it should take. On the website of Correos, you can find the locations of nearby post offices.
Post offices are generally open from 8:30am to 2:00pm, although times can vary and the main post office usually is open until the early evening. Most will also open again on Saturday mornings, but in the smaller towns will close as early as 12 noon. When posting a letter, look for a yellow box and, if possible, post at the post office itself where there will also be divisions for local, national and international mail. Be prepared for long queues at the post office. This is why tobacco shops sell stamps and many will also have the facility to weigh packages.
Standard letters/postcards of up to 20 grams sent within Spain are €0.34. However, non-standard letters/postcards of up to 20g are €0.39. Letters/postcards of 20 to 50 grams are €0.45. In the case of international shipping, the price is €0.64 to most countries within Europe for standard envelopes (letters/postcards) up to 20g, for a few European countries and outside Europe it is €0.78.
