3.4/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • The only thing that you can visit are the gardens, hung over the Tagus River and down to the mine's water. The views are welcome and it is the best offering garden. The descent to the mine's water is an adventure in semi-darkness, puddles of water and through approximately 200 steps that are anything less ergonomic. NOT SUITABLE for travelling with children, elderly or mobility-impaired people. They should let him. Expensive for what they offer. Totally dispensable.

  • Hefty stairs but absolutely worth all the way down at the water. Nice and cool and fun floor of Ronda!

  • A small castle, a secret move to the bottom of a quiet canyon with fresh water. It is a pity that the house itself is closed (restoration).
