Puente Viejo (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpwente ˈβjexo], "Old Bridge") is the oldest and smallest of three bridges that span the 120-metre (390 ft) deep chasm that carries the Guadalevín River and divides the city of Ronda in southern Spain. It was built in 1616, and currently only carries pedestrian traffic.
