  • We went from the Royal Palace to the Casa del Labrador, strolling through the vast gardens, quiet and beautiful, the House has guided tour, which comes in very handy to understand everything what there is inside, lasts half an hour and really worth for the $ 5 worth. It's all very well preserved and, although it is not a too-big house, it is interesting to visit it.

  • Copy and paste the wiki: La Casa del Labrador is one of the residences of the Spanish Royal family. It is a neoclassical Palace, located in the Spanish municipality of Aranjuez, in the southern part of the autonomous community of Madrid. Construction began at the end of the 18TH century, starting from an initial design by the architect Juan de Villanueva, who was becoming successively in the thirteen years that lasted the works and reforms. His final appearance is due to Isidro González Velázquez, who gave the whole of numerous external ornamental motifs. The interior stands out for its sumptuous decoration, the work of Jean-Démosthène Dugourc, for the most part, and by the paintings of Mariano Salvador Maella, among other authors. The Casa del Labrador is located at the eastern end of the Prince's garden. It takes its name from an old farm house existing on your solar, whose structure was used partially to lift the new building, as well as some architectural elements, such as the service stairway. It is the impulse of King Carlos IV, who had established their official residence at the Royal site of Aranjuez between January 7 and July 7 of each year. It was conceived as a place of recreation and is considered to be the most personal project of this monarca.1 works began in the year 1790 and lasted until 1803. Throughout this period, they can distinguish three phases of construction. The first was Juan de Villanueva, who benefited from the collaboration of two of his aides, Antonio López and Isidro González Velázquez. In the second, is attributed to Villanueva the final configuration of the architectural container and Jean-Démosthène Dugourc treatment of interior space. In the third distinguished stage, Isidro González Velázquez finished building, reforming its external aspect with a lavish decoration. The Palace has undergone two major restorations. Between 1964 and 1968, Martín Gamo replaced external elements damaged by false stone veneer. In 1998 was the second restoration, which lasted until the year 2008, after intense performances both on the outside and inside. Structure and exterior [edit] back of the Palace. The building was built in three heights, with roofs of slate, on outgoing cornice. It is rectangular and two side wings, flanked, on their inner sides, arches paths. In the space between these two axes and the main façade extends a courtyard, which closes in the part which is free through a gate and a wrought iron gate. The main façade is topped in its central point, at the height of the deck, by a Royal coat of arms, supported by two figures of angels. Below this, stands a commemorative plaque for the year of completion of the work, in which the following inscription: Reinando Carlos IV. MDCCCIII year. In regards to building materials, used brick walls and blocks of granite in the sockets and arcades. The plaster was used in the ornamental elements introduced by Isidro González Velázquez. The exterior decoration is profuse. On the second floor, appear between the openings of the main façade, niches with sculptures of classical inspiration. In the third, they happen, on all fronts, different reliefs, combining floral and cherubs. The ornamental elements are supplemented with busts of Greek and Roman figures, located on terraces that Crown the arcades and pillars that hold the iron gate, which overlooks the main facade.
