    The guided tour was great, we learned quite a bit about the history of the castle and managed to take a lot of pictures for social media. It's a place I wouldn't visit twice, but it was nice to hear its history.

    One of the most beautiful castles I have ever visited. The guided tour was much more interesting than I expected and I managed to learn a lot about the history of the place. Highly recommended.
