The Lara Museum is a great place, you can have hours of entertainment for only €2! The first thing they told us on entry is that you are allowed to touch and play with any of the exibits that are not behind glass but we didn't expect this to include the Spanish Inquisition implements of torture. The museum itself is... More

For just 2 euros each we spent nearly an hour gently exploring this very interesting museum. Clock, watches, guns, cameras, typewriters are just a few of the many ranges of items to llok at. There is an interesting section on witchcraft and the Spanish Inquasition too. Best Museum for us in Ronda.

Housed in a beautiful mansion, this museum has a wonderful collection of just about everything, from watches to weapons, even including a rather lurid exhibition on the Inquisition. It is just the place for a lengthy browse on a rainy day (and they do happen in Ronda!) Well worth a lengthy visit!

Lara Museo has something for everyone - from a history of clocks, bullfighting, scientific and film instruments to weapons, and implements of torture used during the Spanish inquisition. My two daughters love to write and found plenty of source material. The inquisition stuff was displayed in all its cruel barbarism - judas cradles, cat claws etc leaving us all slightly... More

This was in our package Tourist Ticket from the tourist office. So glad I wanted to visit this museum. Much larger than it appears from outside. They have everything, could have spent more time but had only one day in Ronda. Well worth your time when visiting Ronda.

this is a quirky little museum with everything from a film section to a inquisition, to plates to weapon etc. There is something there for everyone.It is located just across the bridge on the old side.I enjoyed it especially the movie/film section complete with old posters.

This is a collection that everyone should be able to find something of interest - historic photographs, old science equipment, handguns, typewriters, costumes, instruments of torture, etc. I didn't get an audio guide, but found some information in English in different parts of the museum. The Inquisition section is a bit chilling, but fascinating. Well worth the visit.

A treasure trove of fascinating items including torture devices from the inquisition. Very cheap entrance fee as well. Well worth a visit if in Ronda.

An unusual collection of items from the past- e.g., weapons, scientific equipment, photography, etc. My wife like the Spanish Inquisition display and the torture devices... should I be concerned?

We discovered this delightful museum on our trip to Ronda in Spain. It was a fascinating collection of everything you can think of from Roman crystal and coins to photographs of the 1940’s and 1950's glamorous film stars. We had great fun trying to remember all their names. Downstairs was a collection of the instruments of torture from the Grand... More
