Puente Viejo (Old Balmaseda Bridge), whose name means "old bridge" in Spanish, is the older and smaller of two bridges that span the 120 m deep chasm that divides the city of Ronda in southern Spain. It was over the River Kadagua and built in 12th century; the larger, newer Puente Nuevo was built in 1751.
