I am not normally a fan of museum type visits but I very much enjoyed this one. Exhibits are well laid out and explained - some, at least, in English ( I can read some Spanish). Audio guides available. Free entry for EU citizens for a few timetabled hours each week, when I was there. Recommended.

The Royal Palace of Aranjez is the last of the royal palaces in this area. A favourite residence for Spanish royalty due to the temperate climate of the area, it was used as a Spring / Summer residence. As well as a beautiful palace it is full of fine paintings, tapestries, furniture and sculptures. A visit here will not disappoint.

We came to Aranjuez to visit the Royal Palace because I had been told it is one of the finest palaces the National Heritage keeps in very good conditions, gardens included. And so it was!! We were walking around the neverending gardens, all of them plenty of the full spectrum of brown coloured trees. There is also a lot of... More

Start your day in Aranjuez with a visit to the Royal Palace. It's not that luxurious or magnificent but there are a few awe inspiring rooms. Keep you ticket because you'll need it to enter the "Museo de Falúas Reales" (Museum of Royal Vessels, free translation), situated in the garden known as "Jardin del Principe". Besides this, there is another... More

The gardens are beautiful and pleasant to explore, especially since there two goddesses doing a photo shoot while I was there. Gardens are free. The Palace is very interesting as each room is decorated in a different style. All of the decoration and furnishings appear very fresh - well maintained. Was not crowded in early Nov.

Very nice place to walk around and relax in different terraces having a nice glass of wine or beer and admiring the beautiful buildings of the Royal Palace and surrounding areas.

What great photos you can get here, a very friendly town, all sights within walking distance. Nice and quite when we visited on a Sunday morning.

An impressive palace set in fantastic grounds but the security staff are so stern and scowl from the shadows, quite oppressive. Usually, in a place like this eye contact is returned with a smile or a nod. Not here, must have been on one of their bad days! Over shadowed the splendour of the visit.
