La Casa Del Rey Moro, Ronda

3.6
#2 of 16 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. Make La Casa Del Rey Moro part of your personalized Ronda itinerary using our Ronda trip maker tool .

  • This place really does make you feel like an explorer. Slightly damps steps down through eerie caves with magnificent arches and many small rooms and windows of to the side. Definitely worth a look. F...  more »
  • Here are implemented children's fantasies: pass the secret way to descend into the Valley, bypassing fortification halls, reaching a depth of more than 80 meters. Understand the life-support system with full siege. Be in the depth of the Canyon and see the reflection of the houses above. Look around and understand in what turned out to be the secret place-invisible due to bending of the Gorge. And feel the bliss. Not in high season, there are few people, and you can do a lot of unique photo. In Ronda is the most romantic place. Do not go past the invisible gate is in the Center.

  • When we were here the River was not fully accessible by the many rain of recent days. The Palace was also closed due to renovations. Still interesting to descend into the mine and just to walk through the gardens. Nice view of the Ronda.

  • There are steps that go from inside the house down through solid rock all the way to the bottom of the ravine where you come out to a landing surrounded by water. Very cool. Warning: if you are not physically fit, or have asthma or suffer from claustrophobia, you could panic on the way up. The steps seem endless going back up and you're surrounded by rock and it's dimly lit-not to mention physically taxing. The only way out is up, or to go back down and try again later. Going down is a breeze. Going up is a different story.
  • The water mine is interesting. You will have to climb a lot of stairs but luckily there is a nice cafe with great views just next to the exit.
  • This would have been pretty cool if the scenery at the bottom wasn't so underwhelming. The garden isn't much, but the views from the top and during the climb are neat though.
  • Nice gardens, with lots of steps down the water mine to the bottom. Has good views, but have to exit to access the cafe.
  • Great historical mine and a lovely garden before hand. Get your climbing shoes ready
