Amazing Feature of Architecture, Great scenery with great stories about its ancient history provided by your guide. Worth a visit at night for the fantastic light show.

We went on a Saturday evening to see the 21:00 show, it was so busy, "a 3m line around the fountains", if you plan to see it, better go early and wait in front of the fountains.

We spend most of a hot day just lingering around here in the parks which are very nice. The tower itself can be seen from all over. getting in to the courtyard is expensive and not very fulfilling.

We were on a guided tour so unable to say how much the tickets are. Sometimes one can get combination tickets which are more economical
