What a fantastic experience! We saw the castle and all the art galleries inside, the gardens, and all the domain with the ticket. It included everything. The structure of the court is impressive, and the view is magnificent. We saw all the rooms, and then we had a great lunch near the hammock where you could enjoy a great lunch outside. I recommend the strawberry tart with the whipped cream, which the legend says was invented in this region. Overall we had a great day. We visited the gardens afterward, which are unique. Near the hammock, there were sheep, horses, and a playground for kids near a lake. The view is fantastic! Great experience
