Royal Palace of Aranjuez, Aranjuez

4.2
#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.

  • It is a must, really spectacular. We hired a guided tour (about €4 more) for the interiors of the Palace, is worthwhile if it is the first time that you visit. Sources, the garden, the Lake, the waterfall of the river Tagus... take a walk and get lost... beautiful! I do not know for the rest of the year, but in August sources have a schedule of ignition, it is worth to learn.

  • We bought tickets online, and I downloaded the audio guide on the tablet (for something more than € 2). TOTALLY recommended. What Nice and neat is the heritage. The gardens also deserve your ride and devote your time to see the sources your history. We will come back any weekend. We loved it. One day "five-star".

  • 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.
