Lovely gardens and a fantastic setting to stop for a break. We had the advantage of being with Spanish friends so although some of the building was inaccessible due to an exhibition we were told lots of salacious gossip about the family and their history which made it all the more interesting for us. Because it is part of a... More

This palace and its gardens are an excellent place to relax and look down over the town. The garden is well maintained and it is possible to sit there and enjoy the peace over a coffe or drink.

Every time I'm with friends or family in Sanlucar, we have a coffee and cake stop at the Palace garden. Such a beautiful place. Especially for people who like to make photographs.

Regret we were not able to take the guided tour while staying here. The building is fabulous and the staff most friendly - drop in for a coffee and cake even if just passing the town.

The garden are exceptionally well maintained and you can also visit more sections of the gardens and also a visit to the palace if you so wish (times and dates vary during the year). The Palace...

Before I start a note of warning: the address given on tripadvisor is not entirely correct, so neither are the directions given by Google Maps, which had us milling around for more than an hour without finding it! So, here's the correct address: Plaza de los condes de niebla 1, Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Once we found this out, it appeared... More
