Amazing place, be prepared for a long walk down and my advise is to wear waterproof shoes and head covering cause the water is dropping constantly from the top while you proceed down. Recommend for visiting. Spectacular view. Totally worth it.

If you are able-bodied and interested in a lovely view and history, I 100% recommend this destination. The gardens are in rough shape and we're not at all impressive to my husband and I; however, we did just visit in January, so maybe the summer brings forth a lovelier appearance. The mine was really cool though. I will note that... More

The gardens were ok but it was the tunneling steps and chambers down to the water we found most fascinating. They were totally worth the climb!

Not far away from Ronda's Puente Nuevo is 'La Casa del Rey Moro' - allegedly the house of a Moorish King - hence its name. However, the current building is an 18th century palace with beautiful gardens designed by Forestier, the famous French garden designer. Perhaps the palace has been built on the site of a former building because, according... More

There is a staircase from the Casa down to the Gorge. It is a very simple staircase built by prisoners of war and on the day we descende it was very wet and dripping. It was worth going down and seeing the gorge and the river close up. The climb back up wasn't as bad as our guidebook suggested.

Amazing attraction. First, the gardens are beautiful, and you get stunning vistas just from standing in them. However, you should DEFINITELY do the climb down the mine. But make sure to wear sturdy, close-toed shoes, as it is wet down there. It will be a climb back up, but a) it is very cool going down a mine and b)... More

About a month ago, my wife and I visited Ronda and enjoyed the charm and magnificent views around town. We did not know what Casa del Rey Moro was really like, and we decided to try it. This was something of a risky adventure. The gardens on top of the gorge are nice but nothing special, a big part of... More

Lots of steps (over 300) and no elevator. so what goes down must come up he same way. It wet and slippery at times. Take your time down. The safety standards are a bit different than what you'll find in the US. On the way down, you'll see some Romanesque ruins and a wonderful river at the bottom.

I was the highlight of our trip to Ronda. We weren't sure what to visit apart from the Puente Nuevo (the big bridge) and after some hesitation to pay entry fee, we decided for La Casa Del Rey Moro. We were not disappointed at all! Walking down and up the stairs to the Water Mine was unforgettable experience for us... More
