That bridge/viaduct provides quite a spectacle.

beautiful photos!
I believe it's the town Hemingway talks about in "for whom the bell tolls" where the killing of the regime's men were thrown off the cliff. I was so shocked with all the details I had to stop reading it there.

Actually the novel from Hemingway takes place in the battle of Segovia, in the mountanious region between Madrid, ┴vila and Segovia, even though the characters are imaginary. Terrible things were made by both sides and are dark spots of our history, like in any other country.

That's what make historic places like Ronda so amazing, besides architecture you start thinking why, how, when and what happened in all those buildings and how they evolved to integrate in the beautiful landscape.

By the way, Great shots

But that scene, from what I read and from the description, was in Ronda. Of course there's more around the region, like Segovia and etc. Even being imaginary they can be good metaphores for those dark days. Also in Portugal we had those revenge feelings in the pre and post revolution in 1974.

You are right, even though the action takes place in Segovia, 500 km to the North, Hemingway got inspired by the summers spent in Ronda. Definitely that bridge caused a big impression on him and used it to tell how brutal a human being can be.
