On other's advise, we did not tour the inside of the Castillo but the surrounding gardens make the entrance fee worthwhile. The grounds are well maintained and its a peaceful setting to enjoy a cafe con leche while taking in the mountain and city views....More

There are a lot of thing happening at this place. Food festivals, picknicks in the garden, great shopping if you like the local arts and crafts. Check them on Facebook to see what's going on.

The house and the gardens are very beautiful. However to tour the house you have to go with a guide. The tours are only given in Spanish. 12,000 pesos entry fee. About $4 USD

The small pies in the coffee shop are a bit expensive but really tasty. Take the guided tour if you speak Spanish! The garden is beautiful and the building is filled with interesting (mostly European) culture, collected by the equally interesting former owners. Take a...More
