We found the entrance to the Secret Mine caves in Ronda. You need to cross the Puerte Nuevo and head down the first street on the left. It costs €4 to enter which was a surprise seeing as though it doesn't take long to explore the site. Once you get to the bottom there isn't any way of accessing the... More

As others have said earlier, the gardens at the top are nice but the views of the river and gorge from the bottom are the reason to come here. There are a lot of steps, but it was worth it.

There was a nice garden when you enter the area, but the main attraction was the caves in the side of the gorge. These leads down to the water below and consists of many small rooms for different purposes on the way down. The caves was cool and gave some shelter from the warm sun, but the body quickly heats...

The garden itself is small. The main reason is to take the 200 hand carved steps to the bottom of the chasm to see the river.This is where the city received water during sieges. It is the best place to see the chasm. There were peacocks in the garden and seating. It was a cool place to relax.

Lots of stairs climbing down to the bottom of the gorge. They can be wet and slick, but definitely worth the trip! Very interesting history.

Don't do this if you have trouble with stair as there are about 200! You cannot go in the actual palace, which is falling into disrepair but these are the gardens and Secret Mine under the palace. the stairway goes right down the cliffside to the river. Dates back to around the 15C. Something a bit different and worth a... More

It seems the Ronda coach trips and guided tours miss this out because at its heart is a long hidden stairway cut into the rock face, it leads to the river at the bottom of the magnificent gorge. It is a long hard walk both up and down but worth the effort, the views a unusual and superb. In addition... More

Great place to enjoy an unusual view to the Tajo. My 5-year old daughter loved the adventure of going down all the steps and running around the lovely hanging gardens of the house. I hope they finish restoring the actual palace one day as it would make it even more interesting to visit.

This Morish inspired garden was created in the 1940's by a French landscape architect, J.C. Forestier. It is composed of three terraces with formally arranged mediterranean plant and flower borders. Many details reminding on the period of Al Andalus. The view over the Tajo valley is spectacular. The house o the king itself being restored, it is impossible to visit... More

These stairs are cut into the stone and the passageway twists and turns down to the river, with water seeping out of the walls and archways opening into secret little rooms. It can get a bit muddy at times. Wear sturdy shoes with good soles -- it can get a bit slippery on some steps. But it's worth it!
