This is an easy train ride. The walk up the hill was long. No matter we took lots of photos. The castle is beautifully situated on the hill side. It is huge! We enjoyed walking around and the history. On the way back we stopped for snacks in the town. Wonderful day

Although you must pay to enter this small palace, the gardens are beautiful and free. The HUGE cedar trees around it are in excess of 200 years old (I asked). If you arrive by Cercanias train, it is worth a stop on your walk up the palace/monastery.

It is absolutely an amazing park. Paths are just beautiful where you can walk for an hour at least enjoying the nature there.

Well maintained and beautiful park and museum provides visitors a chance for quiet reflection and meditation. Lovely spots for photos throughout the park. These grounds are also a direct path for walkers from the Train Station to the Monastery. Gorgeous.

Lovely house with stunning gardens. It is situated in a park, on a way to Monastery from a train station. The house itself is small and the entrance fee of 5€ is a bit too much (gardens are free). The ticket can be bougt at the Monastery only or online. We had a luck that the blind were open, so we saw the rooms through the windows. Suggestion: visit the gardens, skip the entrance to the house, unless you are passionate interior lover.
