  • We took this fun hike on a rainy day and enjoy a private view from the top. It was quite slippery but worth it! Very beautiful. Not recommended for anyone with mobility issues as it is a moderate.....  more »

  • we went in the heat of an august lunch time so didn't walk all the way up to the top but still the views are pretty epic. Next time we are in the area I think I would stay a night in the village and.....  more »

  • For me, it was a challenge to climb up to the fortress. Rugged and steep! Along with incredible outlook, my heart was still filled with joy. Turquoise lake is a shining beauty, just like a soft gem lays comfortably surrounded by rough stones. A real Nature contrast!
  • Perched on the highest point above the town giving fantastic views in all directions. The trail and shrubbery needed attention however and a few more informative signs would have been nice.
  • We could see the town off in the distance from the road on our way to Ronda from Seville. We turned around to go check it out as we missed the exit and we are so happy we did. So interesting and the incredible castle and it's views from the top are not to be missed.
  • Steep hike up to the top, amazing views from there, very informative information centre and helpful staff. Avoid the restaurants in town.
  • As with most of this area, it's difficult to find a terrible view, especially if you're in a castle. Having the luxury of climbing to the top and not having to pay to get in was a fantastic experience and the 360 views at the top were definitely worthy of the light climb. Be warned that it can be quite windy up top, so make sure you use your strong denture and toupee glue that morning!
