Great outside walk around the building with excellent views in all directions. A must to participate on the guided tours inside the building. Guided tour is in Spanish.

The palace itself is absolutely stunning and the view from the top is also gorgeous. It is a nice walk to the palace and around as well. You can go through the small forest or up the path. Either way, it is very nice. What...More

Gorgeous walk up to the palace in time for the last tour of the day. Guide only spoke Spanish and no audio translation available but for €3 still worth it.

Get there early as place gets packed and parking near beaches fill quickly. No tours in English/ French so passed on seeing palace. Takes about 45 minutes or longer if stops or picnic.

Even though we did not enter this building, just seeing it up close was a treat. We arrived to observe the bride and groom zooming away on their motorcyle! What fun!

Unfortunately they did not offer any tours in English or French and would not let you tour without a tour and tours it seemed only happened on the hour. To bad looked like it would have been good to go through. Missed opportunity.
