Incredible views of the town from the gardens. We did the interior tour as well which was Spanish only but still worth it. About 45 min long.

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.
