  • You spend your life looking for peace and quiet, and it is that you realize that much of that peace and tranquility is in the observation. If they ask me what is the most beautiful place I've ever met, the answer would be very clear: Palacio de Galiana. In this place there are a not is what makes you to be serene, tranquil. A place where you enjoy being, watching, admiring... This splendid palace has left me astonished, is impressive. I was lucky that my company invited me to meet him. I fell in love so much, that I'm going to celebrate my wedding here in November, it is different from what they had seen before. They have also given me a fabulous and very personalized treatment. 100% recommended. Glad that there are still people in the world who takes the trouble to maintain historic places.
