An amazing building in itself, with the added bonus of incredible views over the town and surrounding countryside. The entry fee of just 3.50€ is very reasonable. The plan of the palace, in English, was easy to follow and was extremely informative. Lots of stairs...More

This interesting building is devoid of all furnishings which might have given you an idea of what it was when inhabited. Some good views, and definitely worth a visit if you are in Olite, but after a while empty room after empty room seemed repetitive.
