The palace itself is being restored, or so they announce, but the gardens ar really beautiful. You can have a taste of moorish esthetics walking around this garden and terraces. Th views are also magnificent

The garden is quite and very beautiful. The sight is amazing! When you descend to the mine, there are lots of stairs but in my opinion it worhts the effort, as the sight to the river in the lower part of the mountain is really awesome

Of all the attractions on Ronda, this is the most expensive to get into (and is not included in the tourist pack that you can buy at the tourist office) at 5 euros. The gardens are small and very badly kept up. The walk down to the bottom is not for people with bad backs or knees (wet, slimy and... More

Well its certainly not the Alhambra palace. My garden at home which is about 30 Sq metres has more flowers than this place. Probably the worst garden you will ever pay to go in. The mine has some historical interest but its a long trek down and back up again. They have a cheek charging anything for it but 5... More

We ambled around the gardens, then descended the 300 or so steps of the 'Mine' - actually a covered staircase that leads down to the level of the river at the bottom of the gorge. This staircase apparently was built by the Moors to enable them (or rather, their servants) to bring water up to the top of the gorge.... More

While 'La Casa del Rey Moro' (House of the Moorish King) was never actually occupied by a Moorish King, it is still well worth a visit when you are in Ronda. As well as the 'Moorish Gardens' (actually constructed in 1912), there is the secret 'Water Mine', which was used to obtain water from the river at the bottom of... More

The mines are interesting (be prepared to go down 100 meters in narrow stone stairways and then up again!) but the garden is not well maintained and all in all I felt it is not worth the entrance fee.

Lovely oasis of green calm and the chance to climbs down ancient stairs to the bottom of the gorge. House itself is under renovation.

For public E5 but seniors and students E3. Not worth the money. Very disappointing small garden with wonderful views. Nowhere to sit and relax! Built in 'benches' typical blue and yellow Andalusian styled. Hard on the bottom so one can't stay too long! Forestier's gardens. Not for people with mobility problems to clamber down steps galore to view The Mina!... More

Currently only garden at various levels accessible and 80 metres deep in-rock staircase with iron handrail down to river level. Interesting enough.
