The hydraulic system, the boiler area and the water wheel structure have arrived to our days almost complete. Located at the San Miguel Quarter the old Arab Medina.


 The Casa of the Rey Moro :Belonging to its Arabic origin is a water mine. It is a complex work that descends to the bottom of the gorge “Tajo2. It was built inside the rock consisting of 365 stones steps descending vertically about 10meters. This water mine  has being built by slaves  bringing back water at the top of the city. This palace offers beautiful gardens designed by the famous Forestier garden architect and an amazing view to the gorge, the bridge and the New Ronda city.


 The bullring next to the New Bridge was built  in 1785 and is Spain’s Oldest. Built with sandstone, with a monumental sketch, its architecture is noble, with a double gallery of arches and the absence of uncovered sections. It shows more the spirit of a cloister than the one belonging to a place for bullfighting. The elegance of the bullring's interior cannot be compared to any other place for this purpose in Spain.
