What’s fascinating little museum with nothing to do with Ronda. It’s a nice distraction if it is raining or to spend a hour or so. Starting out with miniature watches, onto clocks and then pistols, guns and swords. Typewriter and sewing machines next, followed by...More

It was raining so we stopped in the Museo Lara. We spent an interesting hour looking at their eclectic collection of artefacts. Well worth the 4 euros each that we spent.

I would recommend for sure. A good overview of the Spanish culture. Had many things of interest, from weapons to cinema. The cost is very reasonable and the museum is nicely done.

After having wasted 5 euro on a ticket to the water mine which was underwhelming to say the least, we walked past the Museo Lara. The friendly attendant encouraged us to enter and the entry fee was reasonable. This museum was fantastic. It had so...More

An odd collection put together by a private collector who obviously acquired things he liked. Lots of vintage everyday things like typewriters, watches and telephones. Plus a cellar full of inquisition torture tools such as a head crusher, still used in interrogation today (I think...More
