La Casa Del Rey Moro, Ronda

3.3
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Ronda
Although La 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.

    Was a bit dissapointed to see that the house was closed, but I guess it's good they are renovating. A small garden at the entrance with peacocks walking around freely, some nice views over the cliffs ...  more »

    the most interesting part is the internal staircase carved into the rock that leads down to the river. And a staircase steep and tiring. I thought you got under the bridge but it isn't. You can't see it. the river is an emerald green but I don't know if it's worth it.

    Beautifully landscaped hanging gardens connected by paths. You can walk along the narrow stairs all the way down to the bottom of the digital divide. There should not be time hassle or second. At the bottom you could collect water during the siege. There was a long queue for the toilet.

Where to stay in Ronda

Consider a room with a view over the El Tajo gorge from one of the hotels built along its plateau edge. Accommodations near the Plaza Duquesa de Parcent are another scenic option that is an ideal home base for walking tours.
