And then the Royal Palace, the Hall of Honor, the Royal Arsenare and the Church of St. Mary, will be a dive into the past that you will not forget. Did you know that in the Royal Palace, in one of its rooms, Maria Stuarda‘s son Giacomo IV was born? Around his birth, however, there is a macabre story because it is said that in reality small bones were discovered behind a wall, and it seems that the one who was crowned king of Scotland, as the legitimate son of Mary, was actually an imposter and that the true James IV had been killed when he was still in swaddling clothes.
It’s just a legend, but who can ever find out the truth?!
