Will be fantastic when restoration complete

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.

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.

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.

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
