We were surprised that there were so few people here. It is uphill but you can take the bus and the walk from the stop is not far. Don't miss this beautiful palace with no crowds.

We have visited Palace,Monasteries,Castles-the lot. And whilst we are continually amazed by the opulence and indulgence enjoyed by the Royals over the decades, this is the best example and display. It is huge, extremely well preserved and fully furnished that therefore provides a much better...More
