to Casa Museo Don Bosco
“Casa Museo Don Bosco” is a historic building in Ronda, Málaga, Spain. This stately mansion was built around 1850 and remodelled at the beginning of the 20th century, when modernist elements were added.
The house showcases the rich culture and history of this region. Walking through the doors of the modest facade is like travelling back in time roughly a 100 years. There are beautiful examples of local craftsmanship from that period, such as tapestries, ceramic tiles and hand carved wooden furniture.
Visiting “Casa Museo Don Bosco” is an authentic experience of Ronda’s historical and artistic heritage. Come and discover this hidden gem in Ronda!
The house carries the name of Don Bosco – Saint, Italian priest and founder of the Salesians.
Originally the house was a private mansion. In 1939 it was donated to the local Catholic Salesian congregation. Until 2008 the house was mainly used as a sanatorium for members of said religious order.
The house maintains a completely original interior in modernist style from the early 20th century.
The mansion is very representative of the architectural palatial style in Ronda where Mudejar, neo-Gothic and classicist elements harmoniously coexist.
The garden at the back of the house is situated on the edge of the city’s famous gorge (“el Tajo”), therefore it offers wonderful views over the valley.
Furthermore, on the balcony there is a unique viewpoint towards the “new bridge”; the most iconic monument of Ronda.
In the upper part of our garden we have a terrace, exclusively for museum clients. Ideal to sit down and have a break whilst overlooking the Ronda valley.
Why not sample some local Ronda wine or try the regional cheese and jamón?
