  • Museum under construction but by the exhibition point of view is perfect; all very neat and clean and despite the presence of more groups are not formed queues. the store offers a good range of souvenirs and books (free admission without tour for those who wish)

  • The Castle sits in a stunning location. My advice is to purchase the audio tour to get a better understanding of what you have in front of you. All well kept and preserved. Amazing even the large park surrounding the Castle.
