Just reviewing the palace itself(the garden not included in this) and it is interesting and you can get a good hour in there. Very interesting architecture with a good guide which explains well and answers your questions.

You will find a shady tree inwhich a residence had been built for ladies( because a tanned skin was not permissible for the ladies) and a kitchen where there was running warm water since XVIIth century- recycled from the oven - through an ingenious system....More
