It’s a french castle in the middle of Medellin. The architecture is the same of the castles of Loire valley in France. The gardens are beautiful where you can have a pic-nic. You can buy the pic-nic menu in the coffee shop. The museum tour...More

Interesting sort of private and underground story behind this place. You will be stunned by the gardens and vegetation. Inside the mansion you will go through some interesting antiques, but what is truly magnificent is the story behind the whole thing. Not what I was...More

Incredible views of the town from the gardens. We did the interior tour as well which was Spanish only but still worth it. About 45 min long.

Superb little mock chateau and gardens in the middle of the city. Highly maintained gardens surround the building. The "castle" itself looks a little concrety from the outside but the inside is a quirky gem, made poignant by the tragic story of its inhabitants.

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.
