Simply average. Nothing life-changingly interesting here. I can see where some people would be impressed with it's history, but I found it to be just, okay, when compared to the other attractions in the city. If you skip this place, it would be okay.

This tour was approximately 4 1/2 hours and included a city tour and tango demonstration. The city itself is nothing particularly interesting or worth the time. The castle was nice and the highlight was the tango demonstrations by very skilled dancers. However it was not...More

Mostly every day, it is able to visit inside the building, with a special guide, which will explain, the constructure of each room, since all of them are different. All is very interesting. There is also a nice Restaurant with the posibility to have a...More
