  • Although this is a local history museum (focusing more on general geology/archeology) the most impressive part was the palace itself. Amazing!
  • Beautiful building. Felt like a home and the family had just stepped out for a bit. Now used as a teaching resource for schoolchildren. We visited in late February when it was quiet. Beautiful views from the garden across the plain.
  • Very nice palace to visit. Best one in Ronda
