Upon entering , one encounters a series of vestibules and corridors finished in lush decor with symbolically painted ceilings-quite palatial- and on one floor (petit). The adjoining rooms are filled with paintings and furniture and the corridors and larger areas have sculptures (See next Tip). One easily reaches a large central courtyard encircled by a classic peristyle from which one easily sees the beautiful dome (also visible from afar) decorated with metal sculpture and attractive caryatids.
