Ronda: Day 3

We visited la Casa del Rey Moro! It had a lovely garden and an underground network of caves that was used to store arms and weapons, and the caves extend all the way down the cliff to the water at the base of the gorge. It was a bit of a hike, and on the climb back up everyone was out of breath. Worth it, though!

Afterwards we had lunch in the gardens and enjoyed our view of Ronda.  After Katherine and I ate our sandwiches and fruits we had sneaked away from the hostel’s free breakfast that morning (don’t judge, we were so broke!), we decided to explore more of the town. It’s so beautiful! Lady Luck was with us that day and we learned that the Arab Baths were free to enter on Mondays, and we climbed up a steep road that gave us spectacular views over the city and surrounding land.
