We went in here just by chance as the sun came out as we were walking past. Lovely little gardens, just enough information for the size of the place. The mines were really good - great to get down to the bottom of the gorge. Don't do it if you're not great at walking though, the 200ish steps were not... More

Followed by a long, wet, hike down through a cave. First the garden - small but stunning! The layout, the water, yes. But, mostly the setting of this hanging garden on the edge of the gorge overlooking a timeless white village and the velvet green countryside with looming mountains beyond. Go for the garden - I could have sat on... More

Amazing climb down to the base of the canyon. A hefty climb back. But well worth the trip. Relaxing garden. Must do. Also excellent clean toilets.

This is a great place for climbing down to the river while experiencing the interesting mine architecture. As others have mentioned, not recommended if steps are a problem for you. The quaint gardens, and resident peacocks, at the top and on the overlooks add to the elegance of what must have been a beautiful Palacio.

The 14th century Moorish castle sits on the edge of the deep ravine that bisects Ronda. It is now derelict and closed to visitors and is likely to stay that way for years as renovations seemed to be proceeding at a snail's pace. Luckily, the site has some other features. Firstly, it has some pleasant little gardens with fine vantage... More

The castle is being renovated so is a no go zone. The gardens are small but well looked after. The 200 stairs down through the mine to the bottom of the gorge is the key attraction here. The water was pristine and reflected the cliffs above to give a spectacular photo. You can relax in the garden with the water... More

What a lot of stairs!!! The children loved the adventure of it all. The gardens were nice to sit in to rest the jelly legs from the walk back up again!

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours this time of year. The Gardens were nice but could have been better. Finding out about the history of this fascinating place was difficult. The walk was certainly a good workout and the view at the bottom good but again the staging over the water was a little damaged and rundown.... More

Worth the 4 euros entrance. Prepare yourself to climb 200 stairs. It´s a shame that the main house is in ruins.

I liked it, but the main draw is hiking first down, then back up the numerous stairs within the mine to get to a pristine small body of water at the bottom. The gardens were very pretty, the time of year I was there, I would say they were not spectacular, but being on a high carb diet in Spain,... More
