Very beautiful palace, gorgeous rooms and the terrace from which you can see the city and the port. The entrance is 6 euros. more »
This palace and museum was built in the 1600s and redeveloped over time. It has 18 rooms open to the public, all of which are phenomenal. This is a gem, a kind of little Versailles hidden in the Old City and overlooking the busy port. The surroundings and entrance-façade are not so great, but the palace itself is just amazing, you cannot miss it.
Amazing place! Definitely worth going! It is a stunning palace of royals. A lot of rooms, wonderful garden, magnificent pieces of furniture. Pay attention to the ceilings - they are true masterpieces. Ticket is 6€, for people under 25 it's 2€. You will be asked to leave your backpacks and jackets in case you have them.
