    Ronda in Málaga Province, Spain
    Ancient civilizations used this mountain perch in the south of Spain as a strategic location for fortified settlements, with Romans, Moors, and Visigoths each contributing to the modern-day city we now call Ronda.
    Puente Nuevo is the bridge we see on the right side of this picture. It’s one of three bridges that straddle El Tajo canyon, the gap that separates Ronda’s two halves. At the base of El Tajo runs the Guadalevín River, supplying Ronda with water and, these days, another breathtaking scene to delight visitors to the city.

    Fifty workers were killed during its construction. There is a chamber above the central arch that was used for a variety of purposes, including as a prison. During the 1936-1939 civil war both sides allegedly used the prison as a torture chamber for captured opponents, killing some by throwing them from the windows to the rocks at the bottom of the El Tajo gorge...

    Both Nationalists and Republicans are claimed to have thrown prisoners from the bridge to their deaths in the canyon during the Spanish Civil War

    Yeah, the photo has been retouched a bit, but the place is well known for tourists. It's a UNESCO hertiage site.

    here, more realistic photo.

    Oh! The picture isn't at sunset when colors become dramatic.

    I thought the nature was sort of like the Painted Desert in the United States.
