Take a bus out to this castle and enjoy the extensive views. Delightful gardens. The castle is where Maximilian lived before he was made King of Mexico and later shot. Good furniture and explanatory panels.

Wonderful castle in an idyllic setting. The grounds are extensive so you can easily spend a couple of hours exploring the castle and grounds.

Comparing property to property, I think this castle with garden is comparable to Hearst castle of California, some top mansions in Rhode Island. The garden is not maintained as well as some US's open mansions, but still a very fine garden for its designs. In...More

Very nice place to visit all the time. You can go there by car, bus or bicycle. Best place to make a bicycle tour. Inside you can see a castle and around you can experience nature along the coast.
