Beautiful Palace. A marvel of works of art. I went with my mother in a wheelchair. Inside you can access without problem but what was not good was the access through the garden of the chair. As they are small stone paths, the chair got stuck and I couldn't push it. The employees in charge of the visit had to help me.

10 is not enough, Alberto our guide was pleasant, fun, dynamic, pleasant and dominated the subject and the place. The truth is that we were with two children and they did not protest for all the walking. We recommend it at 1000*1000. Thanks Alberto (those from Lleida)

A beautiful place to visit, with paintings by Rembrat, Goya, Titian and old documents, such as letters written by Christopher Columbus. It's worth it

The Liria Palace is gorgeous, the wonderful paintings and the great guide. Highly recommended

Excelente la atención del guía y una maravilla el palacio
