La Casa Del Rey Moro, Ronda

3.5
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 .

  • Wonderful gardens that need a little maintenance. Wonderful views. You can get to the mine, it is worth. The penalty is that like everything else, the Palace is very bad and in restoration. The person who was at the box office gave us tickets and or good morning. The entry seems ub cara pelin, but well, must maintain and contribute to the restoration. The descent to the River, when you arrive, is wonderful.

  • If you are in a good physical condition it's interesting to descent to the river and the bottom of the gorge through this ancient castle. It's a nice walk down (and back) with 200 steps. You will see beautiful gardens also in this house of a former Moorish King from the Arab Andalusian era.
  • Awesome place, and great legend about the place. You must to visit, but you have to be in condition, as there is 200 stairs + 200 to come up.
  • Great place to visit, and if you decide to visit the mine you will do some cardio also! :)
  • Amazing gardens, very quiet in the mornings - feels like you have a whole place to yourself! Do walk down the long staircase - takes you to the very bottom of the Tajo gorge.
  • Ronda breathtaking place some steep climbs be prepared loved the views and all the visits
