Beautiful palace (islamic architecture influence)and a great park - big, with many interesting plants. My favourite was Mexican Garden, with really impressive exotic plants. Really worth to be visited.

Beautifully renovated palace with intricate details and a unique architecture. On display are old photos and interesting fragments of the history of the place. Also the gardens are well worth a visit. Tickets can be paid with card as well. There is a parking lot right outside.

Moorish- Gothic-Indian style palace of English millionaire Sir Francis Cook . This place is beautiful and park with subtropical trees and plants it’s worth a visit. It’s a pity, but when I arrived here was a wedding party and part of the building and park was closed .
