to Casa Museo Don Bosco
“Casa Museo Don Bosco” is a monumental building in Ronda, Málaga, Spain. This stately mansion was built around 1850 and remodelled in a modernist style at the beginning of the 20th century.
The house showcases the rich culture and history of this region. Walking through our doors is like stepping back in time roughly a 100 years. You will see various examples of local craftsmanship from that period, such as tapestries, ceramic tiles and hand carved wooden furniture.
At this hidden gem you can be ensured to get the best authentic experience that Ronda has to offer.
At first the house was a private mansion. It was then donated to the local Catholic Salesian congregation and named after Saint John Bosco.
Between 1939-2008 the house was mainly used as a sanatorium.
The house maintains a completely original interior from the early 20th century.
The mansion is very representative of the architectural style in Ronda where Mudejar, neo-Gothic and classicist elements are mixed.
The garden at the back of the house is situated on the edge of Ronda’s famous gorge (“el Tajo”).
It offers wonderful views over the valley and towards the bridge; the most important monument of the city.
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 try one of Ronda’s wines or the regional cheese and jamón?
