  • Beautiful place. Very well preserved buildings. Beautiful redwoods. However no tourist information and staff (security guards) arrogant and rude. I won't be back to this place.

  • Not sure what happend but i visited the palace after 3 years and its in TERRIBLE STATE!!! The garden which was amazingly beautiful is now looking abandoned. No fountain is working.... grass starts to cover the pools. What a shame.
  • The palace itself is almost OK but the gardens are great.
  • Amazing gardens, but not in good conservation state.
  • A must! Beautiful gardens!
  • Fantastic palace and gardens that can be visited all through the year. If you visit the gardens find (and get lost) in the 19th century "labyrinth".
