This is ideal for those hot midday siesta times. The tour is up to an hour and a half long or a shorter 45 min and self guided with an electronic guide. I strongly recommend bringing headphones as if on a budget you can just but one guide per couple and split an ear plug each as you stroll through... More

If you can time your visit to avoid the swarm of cruise ship passengers you can have a very peaceful time here. The audio guide is very helpful (extra charge).

At a cost of €7 entry it was a pleasant walk round the castle style palace. Good views over the to the sea and quite grand feeling. Wasn't a massive amount to read or see overall. Worth a visit but wouldn't go as far as amazing. Maybe would have been better if we got the talking guide to tell the... More

We went here late afternoon, and the crowds had seemed to have died down. We paid 4€ each as we were students and have our student ID with us. Also fully recommend the audio guide which is 4€, we chose the recommended tour which lasted around 45minutes. This guided us through the palace, giving a fair amount of detail about... More

This is a really interesting couple of hours visit. I would suggest that you get the audio guide as it greatly compliments the visit. For only an extra 4 euros you get a tablet with commentary and pictures and it really brings the visit alive. You need to leave some form of identification at the booking area to use the... More

I really enjoyed this visit, its free entry with passport on two nights during the week, there are guides on hand to tell you about anything you might want to know, beautiful gardens & views & very relaxed atmosphere

Definitely worth a visit, especially near closing time when there are few people. Rooms were amazing and well decorated. It was like we were immersed in an episode of Game of Thrones.

I've read lots of reviews on here which are a bit negative about lack of stuff to see- highly recommend audioguide as this really gave you the background and insight into the palace. Definitely worth a visit with the audioguide, probably a bit boring without!

When you visit the cathedral, don't miss the top view, especially in a sunny day, since many stone stairways are closed.
