Go here only if you have time at hand. The castle is not that great. Most descriptions are only in Spanish. The park outside, however, is more lively and better.

Interesting history to this place. You do get a sense of what went on here in the past. Spectacular views across the city.

I visited this place with my children who have lived for many years out of Mexico. They were amazed about the small size of the furniture and all the golden articles displayed.
