  • A must see for Medellin. Stunning views of the city, beautiful grounds with exotic flowers and trees from around the world, as well as history. Truly this experience is for everyone. The castle is unique and stands out with great mystique against the green landscape.
  • Very nice castle with beautiful views of the city. Good place to see if you are visiting. Worth spending around 2 hours.
  • Beautiful home to a wealthy business man. Sadly he was murdered at the entrance if his very own castle. The tour is very informative if you speak spanish. The home is mostly all original and has been kept period time correct. It does need some restoration on the outside as i noticed water seepage is a problem at the front of the house and at the young daughters balcony. I do hope the home gets a restored as it is a beautiful estate.
  • Beautiful grounds. Lovely place for a picnic. A tranquil oasis in the city.
  • Pristine grounds and an amazing view make this an excellent place to have a relaxing afternoon picnic. The gardens are great with plenty to see and the inside of the castle is very well kept. A hidden gem in Medellín!
