Museo Castillo Serralles reviews
We did the house tour only. Enjoyed seeing the family's gift to the city and opening the hacienda to the public. The more we saw, the more we enjoyed the tour.

This is a historical home for the area that is very well maintained. The Don Q drinks are available for purchase and the prices seemed very reasonable. The guided tour was very fascinating and lots of really nice pieces inside that are up to 400yrs old. The dining area inside is really beautifully preserved and decorated, so worth a walk through. If in the area definitely make this one of your most stops. Tour only took about 30 minutes
Nice view overlooking the town. Drive up was a bit different, the neighborhood around the lower part of the hill almost seemed abandoned but once we arrived, the mansion and the grounds were very nicely kept. Road is curvy. Purchase tickets up the hill, before parking, $15 for the interior tour, $10 for gardens only. The tour was thorough and began with a film featuring the history of the property and the founding family (film in Spanish with English subtitles). Interesting and worth the drive if you're into historical architecture.
