  • Don't miss this wonderful chapel during your tour. You will probably have to wait your turn. Do not be impatient .Well worth a few minutes delay.

  • Saw the chapel while doing the tour of the palace. Was unaware that you can get a chapel tour on its own. But it was still amazing to see inside. The was so much detail to absorb.

  • Beautiful chapel within the palace. You can view from two points but not enter.
  • It was under refurbishment when we were there so we didn't get to go in. It was covered with a printed tarp on the outside. We were able to have a quick look of the interior once we had entered the palace. The painted ceiling looked amazing but the chapel was mostly dark so we weren't able to fully appreciate it.
