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)

Don't pay to walk down some wet and slippery steps when you can walk down to the river on the other side of the gorge for free and get much closer to the water. The gardens are nothing special. The views are fine, but no different from anywhere else in town. I guess it was interesting to imagine being a... More

Lots and lots of steps! But worth the climb down, and up. This is the secret tunnel where slaves went down to the river to collect water and bring it up in large jugs. The view at the bottom is worth it - and with a selfie stick you can prove you were there. The gardens were not so impressive... More

La Casa del Rey Moro offers, besides a nice garden and great views, kind of a cave. You need to climb down (and back up!!!) some 200 steps to the river level.

The gardens are open; the structure is closed for restoration. The neighborhood is quaint and you can access the Roman Bridge and the baths just down the street. Not too steep.

We called in here purely by chance but what a wise decision! The entrance is a bargain €4 and we probably spent 2 hours looking at the view from the gardens and exploring the mine. The house itself is closed and in much need of repair but the gardens are lovely and have some very shy peacocks in them. The... More

This attraction is not to be overlooked, the ruined Palace is not accessible to the public but the gardens and the steps that lead down to the river in the Gorge are, but you do need to be able bodied and wear suitable footwear, the steps can be damp and it's a long way down to the bottom, although well...

This was really cool, provided you don't mind the damp climb down the ancient staircase to the river! This passage provided a secure and secretive water supply during Moorish times.

The Casa del Rey Moro consists of a garden, house (casa), said to have been once owned by a Moorish king (although it was built after the Moor's ruled) and a water mine. The gardens were small and a little disappointing. The house was in need of renovation and was not accessible, but the mine, which was built in the... More

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.
