  • The Palace is very beautiful. The guided visit lasts an hour and is fine. The visit to the gardens is free and worth seeing them. The penalty is that the sources were not in operation.

  • Beautiful place, although it is worth visiting it the 25th of July and August to see active sources. The very interesting Palace with a display of art and tapestries real as well as the lamps made by the Royal factory of the same place that we must not fail to admire. Recommended for all types of visitors.

  • The gardens are fantastic. Worth the entry fee alone. The palace exterior is beautiful. We found parking easy in local streets. There are no facilities at all to purchase a drink so on a hot day take fluid with you. Worth the drive from Madrid which is roughly 90 KM. There is a toll each way of 8.25 Euros. Roads were a pleasure to drive on.
  • Absolutely worth a visit. Their fountains are enormous and extravagant and are only turned on 3 times a year, once in May, once in June, and once in August. Incredible to see the fountains going, but an impressive and beautiful place when they're quiet as well!
  • Great place for a visit. The palace and its interior is really worth a visit. The rooms are magnificent. The tapstries are awesome. The surroundings are also very nice and peaceful.
  • Fountains were not working. Such a pity. Some parts of the garden are well look after while some other ones look like abandoned. I felt very sad and I still wonder what the ticket income is used for. There are obviously too many guardians and not enough gardeners.
  • I love this place and the fact that you can actually walk around the gardens. Its gorgeous.
