La Casa Del Rey Moro, Ronda

(3.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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. Put La Casa Del Rey Moro and other Ronda attractions into our Ronda vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Use lots of stairs, there is adequate information of the place and its history, the stairs end up to the River, and they don't have a place to sit... on the other hand the views from the River towards the city have a different perspective... There are a lot of stairs... uffff... there is not enough information about the place you go all the way down to the river and when you get there..... .not even a place to seat... on the other hand the views from the river to the city are from a different perspective...

  • We could not but in the Casa, but also the visit of the beautifully landscaped garden. And also the somewhat grueling way through the secret Santana to the water source is worth. I liked it!

  • Here is are two different attractions, on the one hand the so-called secret mine, a surprise with master in step included (more than 200 steps that need to be carefully and down with effort) to find us in a nearly hidden place, intimate and beautiful... deserving of the torment of the stairs. On the other hand is the so-called garden of Forestier (BIC) to sincerely this rather soulless (not decadent, that would give a romantic aura) for that cataloging and being full spring... the garden I feel poor, stripped, scarce, despoblado... I do not have neomedieval poorly used as excuses (that gardens and history is a little).. .the garden is not in peak (and is spring!) and is also a source of income... will that of the $ 5 entry... gives me rage replant should be continued that wonderful garden! buy plants! who if not the damn stairs... the visit would be no PD interest. I have visited this place as about 5 times over the years.
