The castle itself was cool, but many of the areas were not open, which was disappointing. What we saw was nice, though so it is worth a visit. We spent about an hour and a half there.

The castle is an empty shell apart from some religious art work that unfortunately is all very similar, otherwise there is nothing in it. It is not like castles in the UK where there are things to look at such as armour and plaques with...More

There's alot of religious art work, but I have to wonder why it's left unprotected from the local elements. No air conditioning, windows open, dirt, heat & humidity will ruin these lovely pieces. No one seems to speak English. I found that odd in a...More
