  • We went last year (2016) in late August / early September, do not remember the exact date. With the entry (of payment), they give you a map that tells you where to walk and go through the gardens. The gardens are worth because they have different styles and areas of gardens. I am Asturian, so if it rains, you can not see it in its glory but you can see. Also say that although rain has many interior to visit that are worth. We entered without audioguide and not miss it because there are explanatory posters throughout the entire visit. To see it well and calmly, I would recommend at least 2 hours.

  • Only open it every 2 years and plays the 2018 we will do everything possible to see it. On the outside it seems a very nice site and gardens cool that resemble the Austrian palaces

  • After a long trip, having consulted your website for schedules and prices, we arrived there and they tell us that it is closed to the public. Since no report of this close and we have done many km to visit him a lack of respect.

  • We were two families visiting from the Netherlands and US with five children from ages nine to 16, all well-behaved international travelers. We were the only ones on the grounds at the time and the staff literally followed us everywhere on the grounds, inside and out, tailing us as if we were common criminals. Since there is no way they could do this with a normal population of visitors we can only conclude that we were given "special" treatment. We have found the Spanish people to be wonderfully polite and welcoming - but not the Fundacion Selgas Falgade, unfortunately.
  • Visited the Palace and gardens today..my second visit. Firstly the weather was glorious, a rare and welcome event on the Green Coast! Secondly you can walk around without being herded and chivvied by a bossy guide. We didn't hire the audio guide and to be honest you don't need it. The furniture is not spectacular, nor are the oils. There are only two decent oils. A portrait by Goya and a 'miniature' by El Greco . (Which is very rare, apart from being an El Greco). There was another Goya...the famous missing painting from his Italian trip, where he went to take part in a competition, the prize being money which he desperately needed. He came second and no one knew what had happened to the painting. When an art expert from the El Prado museum was invited to the Palace to assess the paintings, all dross and copies to be honest, he asked to visit the loo (toilet/bathroom). To his astonishment the missing painting was there..hung on the walls of the 'smallest upstairs room' in the house. 'Hannibal Crossing the Alps". It is on loan to the Prado museum in Madrid, and in return a selection of paintings are sent for a short exhibition to the Palace every now and then. I was lucky enough to see it...it is incredible. .. all bright pink and blue and with elephants! There are 10 paintings in the temporary exhibition at the moment. This ends the 30th of September. There is also a tapestry exhibition and an exhibition of the materials supplied by the Selgas family for the school they set up for the local children. The school building now houses the state run secondary school. The gardens are very pretty and on a hot summer's day, it was a very pleasant walk. Well worth visiting. By the way you are not allowed to take photos, either inside or outside.
  • According to internet the Palace is open to visit but the instructions are incorrect. This summer is closed to the public. On the web they should indicate this to do the trip in vain.
