An amazing collection of artefacts from the Spanish Inquisition era and objets d'art. Worth a visit!

I have been taking friends and photography students to the Lara Museum in Ronda, Spain since 2010. This is a really interesting museum that covers the history of this area and also cultural history over the course of time. There is an area devoted to clocks, watches, and other ways of keeping time, sewing machines, telephones, coins minted in Ronda la Vieja (a nearby Roman site), and carriages. I was really surprised (and delighted) to find an entire floor dedicated to the history of photography and motion pictures. The most unexpected area of the museum however contained objects of horror from the Spanish Inquisition--who knew? Visit and see for yourselves what else is here.....

There were a lot of things of interest to see. The museum is very central. It opens at 11am and if you are staying in Ronda try to get there early before the tour trips arrive. All exhibits are well set out. If you are of a nervous disposition avoid the witchcraft and inquisition section.

No matter what your interest, from opera glasses to torture devices, this museum provides you with a little bit of everything. Well worth the price of admission. They also have a discount for seniors.

We bought a "five-museum" ticket in Ronda and saved the Lara for the last. We thought--mistakenly!--that if we had to miss one museum at the end of the day, it should be the Lara. It just didn't sound very interesting. But with an extra one euro investment to take the audio tour, we were taken on a delightful tour in beguiling British accent to see all sorts of curiosities. And do NOT run straight to the witchcraft/inquisition rooms. Let the "guide" charm you through items like the brace of ladies' dueling pistols and a gun for ship captains facing a mutiny and you'll find that when you get to the hideous tortures of the Middle Ages, she is STILL charming you with the same casual, beguiling tone. It's fun!
