  • It's absolutely amazing how well it's conserved and how many antique objects you can see inside and how much they care about the minimal detail. It has a perfect, wonderful english garden, so beautifu...  more »

  • 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.
  • A unique place. A Palace with gardens and a stunning artwork. They move to their two-hour visit to a dream season.

  • A beautiful place, worthy of visit. I am a lifelong neighbor, I studied surrounded by many pictures that are exposed in the Palace, and with school materials that show, a luxury. In family life, anyone could enter in the gardens and the Palace for taking photos. In fact, all couples who were married in the Church of El Pito, also owned by the family, drew pictures in their gardens. Since the reins of property the Foundation manages them they have banned photos so much around the world. For my is jn full error, since the Selgas family ever did such a thing.
