Casino In Marino Trip

We visited the Casino in Marino on the 16th of April 2013.We went to the Casino and found out it was not a gambling establishment. The Casino means little house in Italian.This house was built for Mr James Caulfeild. He was 1st Earl of Charlemont. This house is an illusion. From the outside it looks totally different, as it appears to be one room. When we went inside we were shocked.The house had 16 rooms over 3 floors.It is a good example of Neo-Classical architecture. My favourite part was the entrance hall as again it was an illusion. The back wall was a semi-circle and the doors were curved.I was upset when we were not allowed into the tunnels under the house.In my opinion, it is well worth a visit.
