  • THE fact that this visit would have won more, in spring gardens the part which teach you Palace, we did it with guided tour, was correct the different tapestries and paintings on the ceilings, you are describing them through the halls, as well as some of the paintings. They differ the restored part, as well as the different types of marbles sculptures collections are in plaster, since the originals were transferred

  • Inside the Palace offers many rooms with their respective pieces of art. Yes. However what is really worthwhile are the gardens, this time the sky does not help since that was not clear and snowy gardens. I recommend going in the spring, but snow called attention. Must-see in La Granja!

  • As all the palaces of the artistic heritage, i.e. a true wonder. Note, the gardens with its numerous fountains.

  • 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.
