The prince-bishop house in the 17th century. It is built over some Roman rests and on the Palatine Basilica of Constantine. It is really nice its Rococo face that looks over a really big garden with some water mirrors.

This is a stunning building from the outside, beautiful statues and well kept lawn. A lovely piece of Artitecture. I only saw the outside.

If you know Versailles or Schonbrun...well, ypo will feel like home! Very nice castle, impressive garden, perfectly cut grass and a lot of statues. You will spend some nice moments of silence and beauty.
