Palace was really beautiful. Could not go in as it was closed for the season. The gardens and the exterior of the palace was really stunning.

The walk to the palace was long but it deserved the effort. The palace and the garden outside are very nicely kept. It would have been even nicer if there were tours inside ...

Large square with evergreen shrub garden in front. At night need to be careful as it did not appear very safe to wander around

We actually enjoyed our visit! It was not only interesting but very informative. We went in with a small group which was well worth it.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure at that time of year but usually everything is open.
