  • A small but worthwhile palace museum, with original room decor & furniture from the 18th century. Visitors have access to the palace rooms as well as a large balcony with views of the port & the sea, and an inner courtyard and garden below. You can buy the tickets online and bring them on your phone!
  • Well worth a visit. We almost gave it a miss, but glad we decided to visit. Some lovely rooms and the dining hall with the chandeliers was the highlight.
