#Garden, #Landmark, #Must See
Three kings played a role in the construction of Royal Palace of Aranjuez: Philip II, Ferdinand VI, and Charles II, all of whom are commemorated with statues at the site. Appreciate the building’s grand façade, then stroll through the interior, with its opulently decorated rooms. Portraits and information placards help you gain a deeper understanding of Spain’s royal history. The palace gardens are large, built to relieve royal residents from the dust and drought in this part of Spain. An onsite museum features a collection of Spain’s royal pleasure barges. Audio guides are available, but a guided tour grants you access to some additional areas.

  • The park is an adobe of peace and tranquility amid the hustle and bustle of city dwelling. The fountains are quite fascinating, relaxing; the promenade makes for calming stroll. Boasts of a couple of peacocks and a number of water birds.
  • Beautifully preserved palace. Definitely worth a visit
  • More history regarding Spain. Having visited here in August, I see why it was the winter palace.
  • Beautiful palace and gardens. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit, not overly expensive. V helpful staff.
  • This Palace is a must see. The decor is stunning. Pity they don't allow photos.
