  • The castle is very beautiful and well furnished, with many information in each room inside. The gardens are also very nice. The animations that they offer are great for kids and adults. The place is suitable for families.
  • On the way to ... we stopped by. A fantastic family experience. Right balance between culture, fantastic view over the city, activities and animation for children. The stop took a little bit longer than expected 😁
