Once over the New Bridge turn right and up the steep narrow lane passing the "Palacio de Marques de Salvatierre" (Note the wrought iron balconies that are typical of Ronda. This Palace dates back to the 16th Century.) The street now passes the "Casa del Rey Moro" (18th Century Palace). At the Casa del Rey Moro you can now visit the beautiful gardens and the "water mines"; descend 300 steps right and emerge right down inside the taj itself. Continue up the street you are back to the top again. Turn right and cross over the tajo by "Puente Nuevo" to return to "Plaza de España".

If you wish to descend the Tajo to the West and perhaps take the classic "Ronda" photograph for yourself (best in the afternoon with the sunlight on "Puente Nuevo".) From "Plaza de España" cross the Puente Nuevo and turn right down a street called Tenorio, keeping to the right when the road divides after a few minutes you will notice at the start of a cobbled path which drops steeply back towards the Tajo. Follow this down to ruins called "Arco del Cristo". From here are the best views of Puente Nuevo and the Tajo. Well worth the walk back uphill.
