The Royal Palace is next to the Cathedral. It costs 3 Euros to go in and takes about 30 minutes to walk around at your leisure. There is also a Tourist Information Office inside the entrance. It is a series of interconnecting rooms, It's not...More

Of course this is not Royal anymore, but the seat of the province or something similar. Having said that, it is a stunning building, on the edge of the city wall, with beautiful interiors, and some nice exhibitions.

An extraordinary viceregal palace filled with some quite famous painitings (in the sense that these are usually reproduced in the guide-books). Wall fabrics and painted ceilings most interesting.
