Casa Del Rey Moro, Ronda

3.5
Although 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. Make Casa Del Rey Moro part of your personalized Ronda itinerary using our Ronda trip maker tool .

  • A friend told us about how nice and special this garden was and we just had to visit it. It is done so nicely and is a very special place. Worth the fee to get in. I had just done a three hour walk so...  more »
  • For the price of 6 euros not worth it. The house is not available, the garden is poorly kept and the descent to the mine offers little excitement. Maybe the audio guide is fine, but it's through an app and we couldn't install it on our phones. Not recommended.

  • This is an absolute hidden gem. Don't be swayed by the lazy ignorant people who complain about having to walk down some stairs to the river. Make sure you take the handout at the entrance - it does an excellent job of succinctly explaining the huge historical significance of the water well. For us the gardens and the house were a distant second to the hugely interesting trip down the well to the river.
  • Only 6 euro's to get in. Lovely garden & the view's are spectacular. Lots of steeps down the Water mine to the gorge below, so not suitable for disabled people. The steps were also a bit slippery in places with the water dripping on them. But worth the effort of walking down & back up.
