  • It is a building built in the 14th century. This is a excellent tile work is reminiscent of the Arab building. Is a blend of Islamic and Christian and oriental atmosphere.

  • A really interesting museum in which you can learn about the ancient history of Ronda, Malaga and the Iberian peninsula. There are a couple of interesting reconstructions of the old age, and there are some old items recovered from the areas around Ronda. However, the most interesting part of the museum is the written information about the civilizations that developed in the Iberian peninsula from the old age up to the start of the medieval ages. The way the information is structured and the examples provided are clear, instructive and very useful. This museum can clarify ancient techniques that are difficult to understand in other museums due to the lack of context. In my experience, it's been really clarifying.
  • The museum offers a very thorough presentation of the history of the area all the way from stone age. There are some lovely gardens with great views. The interior is very charming.
  • Simple exhibition housed in a nice but small Palace. Would be good if it were free but not really worth the entrance fee. Pleasant enough place to escape the heat and crowds.
  • Good if you have some time to spend.
  • Pretty meager museum. I was expecting more about the building's history but it was fairly amateur displays of the lives of ancient people.
