Despite alterations, the tiny palace of Mondragón retains many of its original Moorish features and is more authenthic than the misnamed "Casa del Moro", also in Ronda. Once the private home of the Moorish king Abomelic, the palace suffered after the ‘Reconquista’ in the 15th century when it was adapted to house the Reyes Católicos – Ferdinand and Isabella.

As a teacher, I can see how this museum would be a useful teaching aid for teaching young children about their local history. With the aid of plastic caves etc, it takes you from the earliest settlements chronologically. There are some artefacts, too. Of more interest to us was the house itself with its perched position jutting out into the... More

Magnificent building with lovely external garden that gives outstanding views of the valley and peaks west of Ronda. Museum itself is focussed on the ancient history of the region prior to the Moorish rule, the displays, which include English versions, are quite wordy and the sheer amount of text ultimately wears you down I found. Not a museum for young... More

A very good museum exploring the history of mankind from prehistoric time into the 16th century housed in one of the old mansions with both Spanish and Moorish influences

Unfortunately no information about the city itself. Neither about the history nor about the trading. Nice general information about the development of human mankind. For a free exhibition ok but for 5€/p - I would have expected a little bit more than that

This place undersells itself as the grounds and views are stunning it is an oasis of calm. The coolness of the gardens and gentle tunes of the fountains make it a place to stand and enjoy the views It was never crowded and the building itself which houses the museum is an architectural gem of the medieval muslim period with...

The Palacio de Mondragon was a former Moorish palace, and evidence of this remains today in the horseshoe arches and stunning gardens. The view of the rolling Andalusian countryside from the gardens is stunning.

Ok, at first had mixed feelings about this museum. The initial content about pre-historic man and the rise of multiple civilisations in the area were a bit simplistic (specially if you have been to some of the larger museums in the world) but there are a few diamonds of information and it gives you an interesting perspective in terms of...

There was loads covered in this museum. Would have been good to have an audio guide as there ended up being loads of reading involved. Would recommend a visit

I have attended a wedding here which was stunning, so I came back to visit and I wasn't disappointed! It's breathtakingly beautiful views are a must see! And it's attention to detail as a mini museum is fab!! Make sure you leave enough time to take everything in, I spent 2 hours wondering around this little gem! The gift shop... More
