Beautiful mosaic floors brought from an archeological site in Italy are the backdrop to this "Italian style" medieval castle. Besides the many mosaics that were brought here from the site in Kos (Italy), there were many other pieces of art and sculpture that have been put on display. If you like art, it's definitely worth taking an hour or two out of your day for a visit.
