We loved all the beautiful wood that was used throughout. The palace itself is very sturdy, obviously, since about 200 people used it for shelter during Hurricane Ike. The downside, although owned by the Catholic Diocese in Galveston, they contribute zero dollars for the upkeep; so the palace/mansion is dependant on money from the tours, plus any additional donations people might care to give.
