This was one of the most happy places I ever saw. We were lucky and a wedding was about to start, so we could here music from the park. The park is charming, especially the cactus part where you see the ruins of the old...More

The main palace was abandonned for many years but has been opened to the public. In a mauresque style, popular in the 19th century, it is an original building with plenty of charm. The most amazing thing is the park. Incredible gardens with many different...More
