  • Through an avenue that runs through the garden leads to the large pond that reflects the twenty columns of the building. Interesting also the interiors with frescoes worthy of attention.

  • Huge and beatiful garden surrounding this palace. The palace itself is not that big. But the highlight are the six big paintings on the inside walls. The collors and the details really standout. 
  • It is a private residence with beautiful paintings, probably the only facility in the country with this quality of art left. unfortunately other palaces housing most likely similar art were destroyed
