At 3 Euros the place is worth visiting. But what a waste of a wonderful building. It could be a fabulous place if only they had left it as a mansion for the public to visit and get a feel for. Instead they have placed ill-fitting and, very amateur looking archeological exhibits that could really be in any building. Hence... More

This Palacio was an Andalous masterhouse, now a Museum; typical andalous architecture, archs, inside balcony to trail around; antique beam, a romantic spanish atmosphere of a rich palace with a wonderful quit garden, fountains, and a wonderful view to the cliffs and the surrounding valley of Ronda.

The house and garden themselves are the main attraction rather than the exhibits which are unremarkable. The two rear gardens are delightful with amazing views. Buy the combined ticket for 4 attractions including the arabic baths.

The building is nice and at the time of our visit there was an ongoing exhibition about the development of humans which was interesting. Make sure to visit the garden which is very well maintained and the view is just unique and impressive.

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
