Welcome

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 History

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 Interior

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

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.

The Terrace

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?

The house is interesting, but the €2,50 entry most importantly buys you a wonderful view of the Puente Nuevo bridge far removed from the crowds in the rest of town. I recommend perusing the house (check out the tile work!), strolling through the garden, taking a few pictures from the cliff edge, and then having a glass of wine on the patio. It's a perfect way to spend a couple relaxed hours!

Came here for a flamenco guitar show and not only is the house incredible; so is the view, and the music was also something so special in such an intimate setting

Dies ist ein Herrenhaus mit Garten, das direkt an der Schlucht El Tajo liegt und schöne Ausblicke bietet. Das Herrenhaus ist gut möbliert und die eine oder andere Kostbarkeit zu finden. Im Garten sticht sofort der riesige Brunnen, verkleidet mit Azulejos, und Fröschen ins Auge. Lohnt einen Stopp.

Quaint House with Stunning Views Definitely worth visiting this small museum for its stunning views on the valley and mountains while enjoying a glass of something cold or maybe a coffee from the terrace bar. At only €2.50 it is definitely worth it.

Head here for a better Ronda experience! We found this place after heading for the path that heads down the valley in order to take photo's of the viaduct from below but it turns out (fortunately!) that it was closed for works! So we thought we'd give this place a try. Whilst you have to pay a token couple of Euros to enter the property - it is worth every penny. Beautiful old house in Calle Tenorio with stand-out views away from the madding crowd. To boot there is a bar and terrace from where you can sip a gin and tonic whilst drinking in the marvellous views.

A little gem. A small but interesting house, museum and garden that we found by chance. A few minutes from the New Bridge. Spectacular views of the gorge and an excellent bar/cafe in the grounds. We had a bottle of the local red wine and shared freshly cooked omelettes. All good.

Un très bel endroit Nous y avons passé un moment musical, avec un guitariste flamenco. L’endroit est magnifique, l’accueil est parfait. La vue du magnifique jardin est absolument à ne pas rater. Visite intéressante

A tranquil house and garden away from the madding crowds We stumbled across this place almost by accident whilst looking for somewhere for a cold drink - and to escape from the tour groups. I spotted a sign which mentioned garden terrace and bar/cafe and discovering it was only 2.5 Euros entrance (& only 2 for retirees) thought it was worth it. So we dived in and headed straight for the garden terrace and of course were rewarded with spectacular views - and yes there are lots of places to get great views in Ronda but here there was no jockeying for position with lots of other tourists all trying to get the best angles. Refreshed by cold peach juice and sitting watching siskins feeding at a bird table we had a wander around the garden and the open rooms of the house and thought about what a lovely place it would have been for those who were patients there in its years as a sanitorium.

The view Apart from the view which as anywhere on the northern side of Ronda is spectacular there was little to admire apart from the story of the building.
