We visited this place on Sunday around 1:30pm, mind you, there's an entrance fee for tourists. The place itself was like gem and worth visiting. It was bigger than expected with a pretty garden and fountains, the pine trees were shaped and groomed so nicely....More

Worth a visit, but nowhere near as stunning as the Alcazar in Seville. Probably why it is less expensive to enter.
