Casa Del Rey Moro, Ronda

3.5
Historic Site · Architectural Building
Although Casa Del Rey Moro claims to have once been the home of a Moorish king, in reality the house wasn't built until the 18th century, and the "Moorish" garden wasn't installed until 1912. However, the water mine (steps leading to a well) is a relic dating back to the Moorish period. The entry to the well is in the gardens. The steps get slippery and narrow in places, so use caution when descending into the rooms below. When in the well, or the "Room of Secrets," stand against one wall and ask a fellow guest to stand against the opposite wall, then ask another to stand in the center of the room. Whisper a secret message while you are standing against the wall, then listen to the response from the person opposite you. You'll hear each other, but the guest in the center of the room won't hear a thing. Make Casa Del Rey Moro part of your personalized Ronda itinerary using our Ronda trip maker tool.

  • There is a little garden with water right through it and a very impressive vertical gallery where the water was brought up to Ronda for centuries. It’s amazing on the way down but very tiring on the.....  more »

  • Because the house itself is closed due to renovations at the moment, you can only see the beautiful gardens. And of course the famous La Mina, the 330 steps partially inside the mountain to the river down deep, to always ensure a water supply even if beleaguered. This is quite a sturdy walk in very damp circumstances, be wary! For these two items the entrance fee of 6 euros is a bit steep.
  • One of the most interesting attractions of Ronda! The mine is really an adventure with a special view as reward for the journey through the mine. The garden is nice and the terras also offers you a great view over the canyon.
  • This is an absolute hidden gem. Don't be swayed by the lazy ignorant people who complain about having to walk down some stairs to the river. Make sure you take the handout at the entrance - it does an excellent job of succinctly explaining the huge historical significance of the water well. For us the gardens and the house were a distant second to the hugely interesting trip down the well to the river.
  • Only 6 euro's to get in. Lovely garden & the view's are spectacular. Lots of steeps down the Water mine to the gorge below, so not suitable for disabled people. The steps were also a bit slippery in places with the water dripping on them. But worth the effort of walking down & back up.
  • Very interesting place. A simple palace for the royal family but nicely decorated. The visit takes no more than 30 minutes
