Hans and I drove up into the mountains as we wanted to visit the beautiful town of RONDA, which is located north-west of Marbella. We passed through the magnificent Ronda Mountain-range.
Many civilizations formed its history. Several prehistoric findings around Ronda document this region's early history. The most important are CUEVA DE LA PILETA, a cave with splendid wall-paintings.
Its most impressive monument is of course PUENTE NUEVO (the "new bridge") which spans over Tajo River in a height of almost 100 metres. It looks like an old Roman aquaduct, but it was built in the 18th century by architect Jose' Martin de Aldehuela.
