Only the main square has its charm for tapas or dinner.
It is the largest tourist attraction of Piedrahita, now converted into a college. It cannot be visited and is a pity all a Palace of the Dukes of Alba to stay closed to tourists (although it is not hours, when there are no classes, such as weekends). The building is very nice.
Iconic point of interest in Piedrahita, featuring the building, magnificent outdoor Park gardens, a pool and the front courtyard of the Palace. It is a beautiful place where you can spend much of the day in their gardens. Its surroundings make this a special place.
It is a beautiful building. A little Versailles.
It is only on the outside. The restoration of the gardens at the front is a pity. The environment is beautiful and worth a walk.
The Palace is closed. We went to a swimming pool on the side, very familiar and bar-restaurant. A great discovery.
