We visited on a Saturday and the palace and castle were reasonably quiet. The frescos were stunning, although at 12 euro each the entrance fee seemed on the expensive side!

The Palace and the Fortress are nice and the paintings are very nice and worth a visit. The place could be kept in a better state.

I’ve visited in may , not in the peak season. The castle itself was OK. You couldn’t really get to the top and there was not really a lot to see. I was semi-disappointed until I continue the rest of the tour. Overall I would...More

We walked through room after room of the palace observing artwork on the walls and the odd statue. I liked the perfectly positioned steps best which allowed you to glide effortlessly up and downstairs.
