  • I just wanted to see the architecture of the house itself and the small gardens. The view is amazing, but that's true of lots of places in Ronda that are free, like the plazas and bridge.

  • A great public museum. The garden, and ground floor patios are largely as they were during Moorish times. Nice gardens, courtyards, balconies & water features, and providing stunning views of the...

  • At first you wonder if you just got ripped off and charged several Euro just to walk through an (admittedly lovely) couple of small courtyards plus a garden with fountain. Then you go upstairs and get treated to a THOROUGH museum survey of the area from Paleolithic times all the way through antiquity and beyond. There are replica cave paintings, a dolmen, solidus coins from the time of Augustus... the works, all presented with bilingual (if occasionally rough) Spanish/English translation. Hidden gem if you're a museum type, don't miss it.
  • We visited Mondragón Palace around 17:00 and we were the only ones there. Ticket is 4€ and it will not take you more than 30minutes to see it. The building is well maintained, there is a nice view and a very beautiful little garden with fountains. On the top floor there is a museum, where you can have an historical overview of Ronda and Southern Spain from the Neolithic to late Roman Empire. There is no access for prams. However, you can leave the pram at the ticket office.
