Cet endroit est magnifique et dégage un charme fou! Ce promener dans ses jardins, près de la fontaine et la rivière a un effet apaisant et vous libère de toutes pensées superflues, c'est magique. A visiter et revisiter!! This place is really something, you discover...More

This palace has been lovingly restored, and is a joy to visit. It's also a stroll from the pretty town of Aranjuez.

The palace tour is worth paying for and seeing the history inside. The surrounding gardens are filled with peacocks and other bird life in addition to "moat carp" which were being caught by small children! Its well worth the drive up to Aranjuez to see...More

Just pay the money and walk round, it is truly awesome. It cost 9 euros but there are concessions. It only takes around and hour and a half.

The trip on the train is nice enough, getting to Aranjuez takes about an hor from Madrid. The palace is the centerpiece of town and well worth the trip. The palace is huge, the gardens equally big and peaceful, a nice getaway from the city....More

In contrast with the constant crowds in Madrid, Aranjuez is surprisingly quiet despite of its proximity to the capital. The palace is an often overlooked sight that has almost no tourists. Apart from the huge garden, the former royal residence is elegantly decorated and lavishly...More
