Get ready to see its beautiful white façades made of marble, its Venetian Gothic and Renaissance style decorative elements and the evident luxury and ostentation of its rooms, paintings and furniture.

    The place was very nice, but I expected to find something a little different. Despite this, it was a very interesting visit and I learned a lot thanks to the guide and his explanations.
