Spain

Ronda, Spain – Puente Nuevo

The Puente Nuevo is the “newest” bridge in Ronda which was built in 1793. The bridge took 40 years to complete, is approximately 325 feet and cost the lives of 50 builders. The bridge bisects the new and old towns of Ronda and both the bridge and the views are spectacular.

Ronda is located between Malaga and Seville and is an easy day trip from either city. To be honest I do regret not spending the night as thee was so much to see and do.

Ronda, Spain…A Bicycle Moment

Oh how I love to find these moments…finding a bicycle leaning against a fence surrounded by beautiful old buildings and incredible landscapes.

Malaga Port

Another beautiful place to spend an evening in Malaga is at the port / marina. It’s a great place to eat, shop and of course do some night photography. The beach, port and old town are all within a 10 minute walk from each other. If you’re planning a trip to Spain make a stop in Malaga, you won’t be disappointed.

Old Town Malaga

Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the word. It was founded in 770 BC by the Phoenicians and was originally known as Malaka. In addition to its long history, Malaga is also the birthplace of painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso, Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and the actor Antonio Banderas.

Day or night the beauty of this city is hard to resist.

Malaga Sunset

I was fortunate to be staying at a hotel that had a rooftop swimming pool. Never did use the pool but it was a perfect spot to capture the sunset over the old town of Malaga.
