We parked the car and made our way to the ticket window and got in line for our tour. The first part of the tour is a 15 minute bus ride along a winding road that makes it way up to the house. Along the way a guide gives a history of the grounds and the surrounding area. Part of the land is a working ranch.
|If you look closely you'll notice not just cattle but zebras as well|
|Another tour bus making its way up the mountain|
The "castle" really is amazing.
|A grand entrance|
|The tapestries hanging in the house are hundreds of years old|
|Ornately carved ceilings brought from Europe|
|The dining table is all set for a casual meal at the cottage|
The last area we toured was the pool. The pool room as well as the whole pool are covered with intricate mosaic tile designs.
