Beautiful place. Beautiful landcape. A real place where you can touch nature and walk a little bit. Historical place, with some details.

Great hiking with a surprising ancient gem at each turn. Strongly recommend getting a map of the forest before entering. The tourist office closes for lunch between 1 and 3.

We went her as part of our tour. The grounds are beautiful to walk around and take pictures. The drive is even nice getting here with all of the forest. Nice, peaceful location!! Worth a stop!

離飯店很近, 約5-10分鐘的路程, 在皇宮旁有information center. 那有景區的地圖, 一張0.5歐. 要離開當天起大霧, 可惜趕著離開, 否則應該可以看到跟information介紹的照片一樣美.

We have enjoyed one day in this beautiful forest and spend a lovely time. However, the signals inside the forest were too rare and no food was offered anywhere around. Apart from that I do recommend this place. Be careful to leave the forest before...More

With the Palace Hotel as the center of attention, many other attractions exist. The Carmelitas Convent is beautiful. But to find the other attractions is challenging, since the place, although huge, is poorly signalized.
