  • Alone the almost white square building with the huge brightly painted rooms is impressive. Especially the chandeliers I liked. Beautiful views from the Windows on the old city.

  • We visited on an overcast day to "fill in time" but were impressed by the magnificence of the place. Free entry. The artwork and decorations were incredibly detailed, and there were good descriptions ...  more »
  • Enter ... admire ... be surprised by beauty from a place that drips with history, steeped in art ... a journey through the centuries ... is food for thought.

  • Very impressive palace. Entrance is free. Highly recommended for those who love wall paintings.
  • Very disappointing, half of the tour is filled with absolute rubbish abstract paintings or whatever they are with not even a signature so you don't even know who's that from. The better part maybe is for the paintings on the walls but even there most of them are badly remade and the ages are incorrected. Very naive paintings. Not something really that great....Not recommended
  • Oh dear! The temporary exhibition of rather dreadful paintings did not inspire, at all. The presence of an attendant, breathing down our necks, didn't help the appreciation. The 'state rooms' are lavishly painted with, what are claimed to be 18th century paintings - nothing could be further from the truth! Whatever dates have been scrawled on them, they are most certainly not - they may have been painted by a blind, primary-school child (no offence intended) but they are not highly professional and, judging by the pigments and style, they may, may, be 19th century at the earliest. Walking through the rooms, one has the feeling of a great and important place, and a cursory glance at the walls 'tips a hat' to that, but no more than that. However, there is one room which does have really authentic 18th century wall painting - it's on the right, just half way through the exhibition rooms - dash in and see something quite special.
  • Definitely worth a visit, maybe with a guide ...
