  • Really cool experience. I wish we could’ve toured more of the house, but it seems that a large portion of it is blocked off and they only tour you through designated sections. That said, it was...

  • The docents were helpful and for those of us who were limited in our Spanish, spoke English well. The museum is truly a period piece, showing off the wealth of the owners, and is very well...

  • This one of great places to visit. Local historic castle. All tourist guide is lovely and friendly. what i like most inside the castle was the first time i able to see made in gold dining ware from 1930’s. Also, the interior design and furniture was stunning. Must see it in person, since photos are not allowed during the tour inside the castle. For me its all worth it. The price for tour was cheap too. Also, They have souvenirs shop and bar that have a lot of choices.
  • Nice tour of home built in 1930's. Short film to start explaining history etc... Then a guide escorts through the home highlighting era specific items relating to life of very rich people and how they coped. Must have been tough indeed. Photos forbidden inside. Our ticket also included Japanese garden and Cruceta across the road. Spectacular views. Breezy would be an understatement. One can purchase Don Q Related products.
