The Puente Nuevo (Шаблон:IPA-es, "New Bridge") is the newest and largest of three bridges that span the Шаблон:Convert-deep chasm that carries the Guadalevín River and divides the city of Ronda, in southern Spain. The architect was José Martin de Aldehuela, who died in Málaga in 1802. The chief builder was Juan Antonio Díaz Machuca.

The bridge started being built in 1751 and took a total of 42 years to build and claimed the lives of 50 builders. There is a chamber beneath the central arch that was used for a variety of purposes, including as a prison. During the civil war (1936 to 1939), both sides allegedly used the prison as a torture chamber for captured opponents, killing some by throwing them from the windows to the rocks below at the bottom of the El Tajo gorge.Шаблон:Citation needed One enters the chamber via a square building that was once the guard-house. It contains an exhibition describing the bridge's history and construction.
