Beautiful, quiet, So huge that it seemed like there were not many people when we were there. The use of cork is fascinating.

While everyone is up at the palace come here for some quiet. There are a series of lakes nestled amongst the trees. This is part of the park and free to access.

Do this in conjunction with the palace and Moorish castle. Really this and castle and palace - throw in the chalet and lunch at the restaurant and you have a full day! 20,000 steps plus. If you are counting!

Found on the internet and finally got to visit. Didn’t see any ducks the time we were there and it’s early spring, so not much in the way of flowers yet. I’d like to visit in the summer and enjoy it on a warm day....More
