This place is usually used to host parties, wedding receptions and other functions. Our main objective here is to view Casa Santa. Please note that there is an entrance fee to be collected for you to view the Santa Clause museum.

We also went around and checked the different areas of Jardin de Miramar. I will be sharing pictures of several items from the Santa Clause collection and also show some parts of the Jardin de Miramar in a few.
