Behind the modest façade an unexpected discovery. The palace houses spectacular rooms decorated with frescoes and silks. The yellow Bedchamber features original silks and massive alcove wood carvings, in addition to a grandiose king-size bed. Upper floors accomodate the collections of paintings and textiles.
