This cave was very cool both figuratively and literally. We went as soon as it opened in the morning and it was already very warm outside so it was lovely to be in the cooler temperature. The view at the bottom was well worth the climb back up the stairs, absolutely beautiful.

La Casa Del Rey Moro brings back the memory of the Christian slave labor from the Moorish times. Especially the so-called Water Mine section. In 14th century, using Christian captives as slave labor, Ronda's Moorish king, Abomelik, ordered the cutting of steps into the stone walls of the gorge to enable the bringing of water from the Guadelevin River below....

We found the cool of the caves a welcome escape from the hot summer sun. Carved into the walls of the gorge, you climb down a steep series of steps through various rooms and tunnels to the water. Natural light shines in through small windows and openings. Many of the rooms are constructed from brick and have arches and vaulted... More

Spectacular, but you need to be in good shape to master all the stairs! The descent is spectacular and the river at the bottom reminds you of paradise.

Nothing really interesting here. A small garden and a steep and wet staircase, which takes you to the bottom of the gorge to see... well - the gorge from the bottom. Disappointment. Definitely to be skipped.

It’s a very odd and beautiful place, for sure it one of the highlights of my visit. The Water mine is beautiful, but there are many stairs and it can be physically challenging. Besides, there is not a single safety measure. Nice but not very safe.

Ronda is a beautiful little jewel located high up in the mountains north of Marbella, Spain. Take the short bus ride ( just over an hour) as it climbs and winds it's way through the mountains near coast of southern Spain. The views are spectacular...sit on the passenger side of the bus! You can easily walk down across the Puento... More

The gardens, apparently visited by Michelle Obama, are very pleasant without being spectacular. But more exciting are the steep steps down to the bottom of the gorge where you can see the buildings reflected in the lake below. I didn't get the chance to walk down the gorge due to poor weather so I am glad I saw this. And... More

Be prepare to claim stairs like crazy if you want to visit the Hidding bath in this place. I went to visit and I count more that 300 steps down to the bath... It is very humid and slippery. Go with close tennis shoes or walking sandals (you may get wet)
