  • Beautiful place. A good view of palace however nobody is allowed inside. The guards are friendly. Beautiful garden with pretty flowers outside and an iconic place for photographs. Walk through the side corridors also feels good. Parking space is ample..
  • Fascinating place that tells you a lot about the wealth of this country. Incredibly well maintained, marble pavements and very nice gardens. Also the seaside is beautiful although more difficult to view.
