  • Nice to the eyes. Did not go in because it was expensive. Around 10 euros per person. Thought it was quite expensive. A peculiar castle. It was the Marques of Comillas’ little present to himself. You can see it from the outside for free with no problem. That walkway takes you up to the main castle and to a gorgeous view of the Pontífice University. Hard to take pictures because there’s quite a good amount of people walking in front of it. However, it is a must see if you’re there.
