Lovely family trip with enough space for the kids to run, but unfortunately we could not enter the building. We were told that the palace is only open to public on the weekends. Disappointing, really.

It is a lovely walk around the grounds and all for free outside the castle. Cool animals, mermaids, gardens and suitable for all ages. Really nice place to have a picnic too!

Well worth the time to visit this palace, there was an international symposium being held there when we went to see it, all I can say is they were very lucky people to have had that chosen for them! Beautiful.

Located at the top of the hill of the Magdalena peninsula is this beautiful palace, which was used by King Alfonso XIII to spend the summers with his wife and children. The palace was restored to the good old days and it's worth visiting.
