Normal place, nothing special. You can go there because is closer to other good places but if you don´t have much time just take few minutes there.

Marvellous palace to explore. Beautiful architecture - a delightful place to explore. Please remember to get an audio-guide - which is very informative.

My husband and I visited on a day trip by train from Malaga - which is quite “do-able”, being just under three hours each way. We booked a guided tour in advance on the internet which was a good move because it means that you...More
