Ronda: Bridge


RONDA, Spain » You wind on pedestrian paths past a bullfighting ring, a bust of Orson Welles, and a sign marking Paseo de E Hemingway. Then a gorge plunges 300-plus feet from your hilltop walkway. Between the edges of civilization on either side runs the Puente Nuevo, its massive center arch seeming like it might never find the canyon bottom. Across the bridge is a lookout, where a Spanish guitarist plays his version of “Michelle” by the Beatles.
