It's not a house, but a garden and a mine

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.

This is a secret path of the arabic king in ancient times. A beautiful and silent scenery is waiting for you after 10-20 minutes wonders. The cave are wet and slippery, make sure you wear comfortables shoes.

Sadly the house itself is under long-term renovation, but the gardens and caves are certainly worth visiting. The gardens are charming with great views of the bridges, chasm and the different sides to the city. The trek down through the caves to the bottom of the gorge is not for the faint-hearted - but definitely worth doing. Make sure you... More

Don't skip over this attraction! It might not look like much (especially since it's well camouflaged into the cliffs) but it's spectacular inside. Pictures cannot truly capture the experience!

Ticket can be bought at the entrance for €5. It closes at 6pm. Wet, steep and dark staircase heading to the water mine. And the handrail alongside the staircase is rusty as well - probably because of the dripping water from the ceiling. Once you arrive at the mine, you'll see the emerald blue water and how magnificent it is... More

Walking down the staircase was so much fun, walking up was a completely different story. However, it is a must see and totally worth it. You have to be in shape to walk down and back up again so don't go if you tired easily or have any concerning injuries.

The stairs are high and drippy, it's true. But you get a great quad and glutes workout! Breathtaking view of the gorge at the bottom.

The 'hanging gardens' and 'Secret Mine' are rather fanciful descriptions, but nevertheless we enjoyed the experience of descending down the rocky staircase to the river at the bottom - and then back up again!
