The grounds around the palace is huge and great to explore. The Mexican gardens was a particular highlight for us. But the palace itself is an empty palace and isn't really that impressive. I can't really recommend the palace but the grounds is highly recommended...More

Both the interior and exterior were amazingly crafted. Had a touch of Indian and Arabic designs too. Didn't want to leave the palace but had to, due to shortage of time. Best part was the hop on hop off car that made the visit possible...More

It's a couple of miles outside the town, but easily reached by bus or on foot, but there isn't much parking. We walked there, and took the bus back. It was the only palace we visited that wasn't crowded. The Palace is undergoing renovations, but...More
