  • An amazing tour. All castles have ample history. This castle exceeds the rest and aldo has more of the property available for touring than most. This is amazing because it is still a "working castle".  more »
  • Amazing Castle! Unfortunately, we was disappointed because only few rooms was open to be visited....the rest of 95% from this Castle was close for tourists.

The exteriors of the place were beautiful already. The interiors offered a lot of interesting history thanks to the well informed tour guide. If you're not in a hurry, also take your time to explore the vast garden areas around the garden.
