The Royal Palace is next to the Cathedral. It costs 3 Euros to go in and takes about 30 minutes to walk around at your leisure. There is also a Tourist Information Office inside the entrance. It is a series of interconnecting rooms, It's not...More

Of course this is not Royal anymore, but the seat of the province or something similar. Having said that, it is a stunning building, on the edge of the city wall, with beautiful interiors, and some nice exhibitions.

An extraordinary viceregal palace filled with some quite famous painitings (in the sense that these are usually reproduced in the guide-books). Wall fabrics and painted ceilings most interesting.

No fee. That was a surprise. Even though I didn't know where I was entering. Worth to visit because you get an image how the royal palaces looked like. Moreover, the walls are cover with a cloth and not a paper thing.

Looks plain from the outside, but beautifully decorated rooms inside. Very low key attraction - no charge, no info, no-one to ask about what is what. It was great to see the main room in use for a conference - it meant that we couldn't...More
