Create an itinerary including Casa Del Rey Moro
Although Casa Del Rey Moro claims to have once been the home of a Moorish king, in reality the house wasn't built until the 18th century, and the "Moorish" garden wasn't installed until 1912. However, the water mine (steps leading to a well) is a relic dating back to the Moorish period. The entry to the well is in the gardens. The steps get slippery and narrow in places, so use caution when descending into the rooms below. When in the well, or the "Room of Secrets," stand against one wall and ask a fellow guest to stand against the opposite wall, then ask another to stand in the center of the room. Whisper a secret message while you are standing against the wall, then listen to the response from the person opposite you. You'll hear each other, but the guest in the center of the room won't hear a thing. Make Casa Del Rey Moro part of your personalized Ronda itinerary using our Ronda trip maker tool.

  • Take your time, go all the way down, feel the agony of those poor Christian slaves. Absorb the ancient history emanating from the walls and stairs. You do not want to miss this mind-blowing...

  • A must in Ronda but too expensive because the palace is closed. Very instructive and excellent audio. Blablablablablablablabla Blablablablablablablabla Blablablablablablablabla

  • The water mine is a must see in Ronda, amazing experience and great audio guide in the app.
  • This is an unusual place that will make you appreciate the history and human ingenuity. It's an extraordinary place that will make you go down the stairs to reach the river. Only for people in a good shape! The gardens are nice and offer good views around the city. It's a shame that the house itself is in ruins and cannot be visited. I wish it had been renovated and reconstituted to its past glory.
