Really enjoyed our tour here. The rooms were incredible and there were plaques situated throughout to provide more information. Be warned there are quite a few stairs so definitely not good for anyone with limited mobility.

Entrance costs 5 euros per adult . You enter the mine from the gardens and descend down many many steps. The way down is a bit damp but when you reach the bottom it is well worth it. Peace and tranquility overlooking the water. Heading back is not so easy but think it is worth it as quite unusual. There... More

The building/castle was little bit dilapidated. Most of this kind of place have been restored in Andalucia. When you go to bottom of castle you will find amazing view! There is so many steps and inside castle is also little bit wet. Also the garden and view there is beautiful.

You could enjoy the gardens on a nice sunny day and the views from here are of course spectacular. The trek sdown to the bottom involves a lot of steps and would not be for the unfit or people with disabilities. You have an interesting view back up the gorge from here nad it is worthy ot the walk down... More

The place is under renovation. It is only a garden and a secret mine that goes down to the bottom of the canyon, using stairs build within the mountain. It is a fun excursion especially with kids. There are old rooms that were used by the soldiers to defend the place from potential invaders.

Be prepared for stairs, and to not be blown away by the upkeep of the place, and you will have a nice time. It is an interesting decent into the gorge through old mining tunnels. There is a nice view at the bottom, although if that is your main draw you can get that same view for free by taking... More

It is interesting though, since the mine goes down to the valley of the canyon and there you can see the bridge and its surroundings from another point of view. The gardens are not so interesting but the mine certainly is, and in summer a nice terrace opens there.

As long as you can handle steps, this is well worth a visit. It takes you deep down and is very serene at the bottom, despite an exciting eeriness on the way down. Lovely views, I would recommend if you can handle steps.....if you are average fitness, take it easy on the way back up. We went in January, on... More

Even though its disputed whether this was the residence of the skull drinking Almonated this place is interesting. The gardens are nice to explore and gives great views of El Tajo gorge. the premises also gives entrance to the water mine. The structure you'll see today is from 18th century.
