Overview

Built in 1835, this largely Italian marble palace, has an odd conglomeration of attractions: winding stairways, underground cellars, huge verandahs, statues, an impressive collection of antiques, caves with cannons, a zoo and duck ponds.

Slightly idiosyncratic venue, this is still in private ownership so no photos inside. That said, it is an amazingly grand place that in its heyday would have been stunning. There are significant numbers of what appear to be hugely valuable artefacts - Ming vases, other...More
