‪With wonderful city views, this estate a great place to visit. The tour is interesting as is the history of the family who lived there. Well worth the visit...‬

‪This is a must see in Medellin‬
אוג׳ 2021
‪I was impressed with with the quantity and quality of pieces of art in this museum. They were not collected from other locations and placed in this home. It is a well-preserved step back in time of a wealthy family with roots back to Germany. Do not miss an opportunity to visit the museum‬

‪Stunning and Beautiful‬
יולי 2021
‪What a Beautiful and Stunning place. Each room was a work of art. The grounds are well maintained and the fountain is the shining star. Our guide was well informed and gave so much interesting information I am so sorry I didn't get her name she was great.

Truly a Charming Place‬

‪Demeaning !‬
זוגות • יוני 2021
‪When we arrived we were told there no guided tours, but that we could enter the house, which was okay with us. However, as we entered through one door that was open, we were approached by a completely rude guide. She didn’t even greet us, but just asked us why were there, we explained the situation and that we had seen a door that was open, yet she just had a very threatening attitude telling us “you’ve better not taken any pics” and kicking us out with an impolite tone of voice. Not only was she rude, but also told us to close the door when leaving, as assuming we were the ones who opened it. It’s a shame that a touristic place has such discourteous and untrained staff. We paid two tickets to be treated in a really demeaning way, not the way most people here treat tourists.

Needles to say this is not a real castle, but a copy of one. So there’s no point losing your money, there are other places with much better customer service in Medellin.‬

‪A grand interior & A "garden-like" front :)‬
ינו׳ 2020
‪An "imposing-sized" castle with a number of beautiful red turrets (about 5 of them both at the front & at the back of the building), just as impressive as the outside is also its inside where on the three floors (except for the top floor just with one small library room) are a number of rooms which simply put are in "luxuriant settings" (elaborate furniture, sizeable paintings actually including a "Mona Lisa replica", intricate tapestries & just various decorative objects) and also where at the time of my visit (but which may just have been for the Christmas & New Year season) were two big rooms each with like a "sprawling miniature" (taking up the whole length of the room) of the scenes related to the birth of Christ which were just quite awesome to see. And on each floor is also one or more "outdoor parts" to go out to for some nice views of the castle grounds below especially the 1st floor with a "big terrace" (quite a spacious one although you can only come up to it from outside and yes the 1st floor on the front side is actually above ground) & also a small courtyard to go out to from the back side.

And yes, also a nice time had after coming out of the Castle was at its "garden-like" front grounds which is not one in the sense of a botanical garden or such but a "huge lawn" on which are some nice arrangements of tall trees & smaller shrub-like plants beautiful with various colors (not many flowers to see overall though except for some scattered ones). Personally though, more than the plants & flowers, what I actually found more enjoyable is just capturing this great castle from different angles while walking around these front grounds (really some "awe-striking" views of the building!).

If coming from the "touristy neighborhood" of El Poblado, it's about a half-hour walk south pretty straightforward along Carrera 34 or 35 (the two merging at some point) although there are stretches along the way that are "somewhat uphill", and yes also enjoyable to see along the way (actually just soon after leaving El Poblado) are some number of streetart scenes in a "long row" on the left side of the street.‬

‪Fantastic place to visit ‬
חברים • פבר׳ 2020
‪You would think you are somewhere in Europe. Absolutely a most see while you visit Medellín, right from the gate the gardens are impressive and breathtaking. It’s history and story leaves you breathless.
If you do not speak Spanish...... you are going to miss out as they do not have any guides that are bilingual. This was a total shock as there are many foreigners in attendance. ‬

‪Enchanting Castle and Grounds! Interesting Tour!‬
זוגות • פבר׳ 2020
‪Our favorite tourist destination in Medellin! An enchanting castle/ home, filled with antique treasures, baccarat chandeliers, Meissen vases, Ecuadorian and Colombian antique paintings! Beautiful grounds and overhead scarlet macaws and screeching parrots ! Entrance on the hour; no photography inside exhibits; breathtaking views! Highly recommend!‬

‪Very interesting and unusual ‬
זוגות • פבר׳ 2020
‪A mock European looking castle build in the 1930 by a rich family. The gardens are very nice and peaceful. Be mindful that you can visit the interior only on a guided tour, therefore check when they take place to avoid sitting around to wait for one. ‬

‪A pleasant moment ‬
זוגות • פבר׳ 2020
‪This place is built in the 1930’s. It’s a imitation of a classic European castle. It’s located not far from downtown (10 minutes by taxi). Place offering to visitors the opportunity to see a fully furnished Resident of a rich family. The garden is very pretty as well. ‬

‪A must if you like art.‬
לבד • פבר׳ 2020
‪I was pleasantly surprised by the Museo del Castillo. To start with it’s more of a country house than a museum - think National Trust if you are British. The art and decoration inside is really high class (eg Sevres, Limoges and Meissen porcelain and some good Art Deco sculpture) and the gardens are a very pleasant place to while away a few hours watching the flycatchers and tanagers.

My only regret is that the staff don’t seem to recognise what a gem they have, so all you get is an hour’s tour reciting from memory a list of “things”. There’s nothing about how the art got there, why the builder decided on the French chateau style and how the final owners were inspired to buy so cleverly.‬
