... of your way to see this bridge-- and I get to enjoy it on a free stopover! Eager to explore every inch of this place, I cross over to the other side, to a quaint, albeit tourisified, Old Town, and then out to the edge on the other side where I follow a footpath outside the western wall down to the old Moorish baths. Just my luck, on Sundays the visit is free, so I go in and watch a well done documentary-- which seems remarkably respectful of the Moorish contribution ...
... we visited Gibraltar. We were really glad to have the opportunity to go but thought the place "tacky" and would not go again. Worth a visit for the experience. We saw some Barbary Apes and a cave which is used for concerts. We had some rain today but it was quite humid. The drive there and back was eerie in the mist and we saw many opulent houses on the way. Lots of duty free and British shops and F and C everywhere! We will be sorry to leave Ronda ...

After a little more walking I found the hidden path I needed to take down the hill and thought "this isn't too bad" as it was a nice paved walkway with beautiful wild flowers on either side. After about 10 minutes I came to a fork in the road so I looked at my map and the way to the right was a lot shorter so naturally I took that one. ...
... at the amazing bridge from below. I eventually climbed out of the ravine but traversed around the exterior of the old part of the city and could see remaining sections of the towering wall once circling the old town. The early inhabitants of this area were serious about security with not one but two defensive walls around the city itself perched on a raised rocky platform. The old city and its defences were constructed by Moorish descendants who ruled the area until 1485 when Ronda fell ...
