We enjoyed our visit to the grounds, and thought it was super pretty, but it’s nothing overly special for tourism. I’d give it a 4 if we could have just walked through the house real quick, but they make you do a tour that lasts...More

It was a nice house, not even that old. (1930s) I don't understand the draw. Nice view (describes the entire city of Medellín!), decent grounds. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. I don't understand all the great reviews.

The Castillo is a villa belonging to a prominent Medellin family in 20s to the 50s. It's museum has an eclectic collection from various periods and European countries. It has a lovely garden with a view of Medellin.

The grounds of the castle are gorgeous, and it was great to see the Castle and learn more about its history. If you have time to see it, I suggest you do.

Beautiful Castle and gardens, located in Loma los Balsos in El Poblado. You'll learn the tragic history of a affluent family in Medellin. You can take great pictures of the outside of the castle and its beautiful gardens, but no pictures inside. The entrance is...More

It’s a french castle in the middle of Medellin. The architecture is the same of the castles of Loire valley in France. The gardens are beautiful where you can have a pic-nic. You can buy the pic-nic menu in the coffee shop. The museum tour...More

Interesting sort of private and underground story behind this place. You will be stunned by the gardens and vegetation. Inside the mansion you will go through some interesting antiques, but what is truly magnificent is the story behind the whole thing. Not what I was...More

You are writing to the wrong person. I never wrote such a comment in my review- "egregious proofs of old money in the hands of those who never had to work for" . I do not hold such views either.
