We walked around the palace and the garden and took some photos. The pictures did not come off well as lighting was not at its best 😦 .JpegOnce we decided to go back, it started pouring down and we waited at the beautiful corridors for the rain to stop.

It is  small yet a beautiful palace. It’s worth a visit if you are in a mood to relax on a random mid week holiday or if you are in the city with a less hectic  tourist schedule 🙂
