This is a real castle - built almost a 1,000 years ago with a rich history that is well documented alongside some great archeological work done in the last 40 years AND it’s in the centre of a great city - you don’t even have to drive out of the city to see it.
So why is everyone ignoring the museum next to the cafeteria while hawking at the Peacocks running around??? Peacocks I said? Yes - Peacocks, there is a whole muster (amazingly that’s what they call a group of Peacocks) of Peacocks around and people JUST CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THEM. Once you had your fill of them, go see the castle, see the museum, read about the Moors and go home happy.
The walk to the museum is half the fun (take the #28 Tram and walk the rest of the way), the walk back is even more so - eat enough pastries to make the whole exercise a break even proposition and Instagram the Peacock pictures. More
