I was greeted at the main entrance by a very rude and disrespectful woman. She explained that we could not walk through the house alone and she would accompany us. I could tell she was displeased at my level of Spanish. She gave very curt...More

Stunning grounds. Very peaceful and quiet first thing in the morning. Well kept. We can't speak Spanish well and asked if we could just go and see the grounds but we were told no and had to do the tour. The tour is hourly in...More

I loved hearing the history of the family and seeing their collection of medical and musical things. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous

I had seen photos, but they cannot compare with actually walking through this amazing structure. For the Christmas season hundreds of miniature scenes depicting the birth of Christ & Mary and Joseph's journey. The Castle itself has very little furniture remaining, except in the music...More

We enjoyed our visit to the grounds, and thought it was super pretty, but it’s nothing overly special for tourism. I’d give it a 4 if we could have just walked through the house real quick, but they make you do a tour that lasts...More

It was a nice house, not even that old. (1930s) I don't understand the draw. Nice view (describes the entire city of Medellín!), decent grounds. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit. I don't understand all the great reviews.

The Castillo is a villa belonging to a prominent Medellin family in 20s to the 50s. It's museum has an eclectic collection from various periods and European countries. It has a lovely garden with a view of Medellin.

The grounds of the castle are gorgeous, and it was great to see the Castle and learn more about its history. If you have time to see it, I suggest you do.

Beautiful castle and grounds. The gardens are stunning and offer a wonderful view of the city below. There are several fountains also surrounding the property. There is a small cafe for refreshments and they had just finished preparing fresh squeezed orange juice, delicious! There a...More

Learning the history of the Castle is heart breaking, sad story. Oh, by the way please be aware that they only did Spanish tour. I'm not quite sure if they do an English one but the one they did was just in Spanish. I was...More

You are writing to the wrong person. I never wrote such a comment in my review- "egregious proofs of old money in the hands of those who never had to work for" . I do not hold such views either.
