La Casa Del Rey Moro, Ronda
(3.4/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Of the must-sees in round. Gardens with views of the Tagus, the Arab baths and the other two spectacular bridges. And on Arabic mine are unnecessary words, unique in its genre (was a 14TH century Arab Fortress), to lower good Footwear is recommended, are 80 meters of descent by damp and wet steps, but the end result is worth (and long) worthwhile. Very sad that the Palace after so many years still walled closed.

  • There by accident came along, and talked to us right away! Costs 5 € person but is really worth it. The garden is not so very much for, now you have a beautiful view. But on the other hand, the mines are super! Is a real descent that you definitely feel in your legs! But once you are down, you forget all this. Is already a fun experience to go down by these old mines, and if extra have you down another fantastic views of the gorge with from under clear blue water! Really surprising!
