Puente Nuevo Closed to Traffic

From the end of January 2018, and for the foreseeable future, it is important to note that vehicle access across the Puente Nuevo is restricted… The bridge is CLOSED to traffic from 10am to 1:30pm and 5pm to 8pm. So be warned if you are arriving in Ronda during these times and need to get to your hotel in the centre of town…

The easiest way to get to the old town and hotels on the other side of the bridge from the Parador by car is to take the Algecirus road and enter Ronda via the area known as Barrio San Francisco… The junction for this and your main reference point is the new hospital on the road from Ronda to San Pedro… Once you find the hospital roundabout you will easily find your way to Barrio San Francisco and the old town…  If you are at barrio San Francisco and need to get to the parador bullring side then stay on the road towards Jerez/Seville untill you come to the main roundabout into Ronda.
