“Once Fabulous, and still worth seeing”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Incredible piece of property in the old town adjacent to the gorge. The garden is like a little maze. The water mine is spooky, cool. The home is (fortunately) under repair and can't be visited. If they can restore to it's former glory, this place will be spectacular.

“Worth the 400 steps!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

When we entered the Casa Del Rey Moro, we had to think twice whether to pay the 4 euros to visit the Casa. When we got in, we saw the small garden, and arrows guiding the way to "the Mine".

We had no idea where we were going as we didn't prepare ourselves to visit Ronda, we just drove up there and walked where-ever we felt like.

After a 100 steps down we started to wonder if this was a good idea or not, as we saw people sweating and walking back. In the end, all I can say is that go for it. You'll have a hard time walking after a few hours in case you're not fit, but so worth it! Grab a refreshment in the bar when leaving the place (even though the steps might look terrifying :) ).

“Lovely, simple diversion in Ronda”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Worth the time and money - a very cool, old mine, supposedly owned by the Moorish king of Ronda. Descend a few hundred steps down to the river at the bottom of the gorge. Afterwards, come back up and wander around the lovely (and not "over-preserved") gardens. Spend a few hours here - you won't regret it.

“The Castle That Never Was”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

It is unfortunate that the reconstruction of the Casa has not been completed so that all we could view are the gardens and the water mines. The gardens and the views of the structure from outside gives us the impression that the interior would be grand. However, visitors are not allowed inside. A pity!

“It is very pretty, but unfortunately poorly conserved”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

The most interesting thing about La Casa del Rey Moro is the descend you take to come down to the river. It is very nice. The gardens are small, and there is not much to see. The bar is average. It is a pity that the house itself (La Casa) is not open to the public as it is in ruins and poorly conserved.
