I found strolling around the gardens very relaxing. The huge ponds and gorgeaous flowers were stuning even on a rare rainy day in Spain!

Nowhere near as good as the Real Alcazaar in Seville but still well worth a visit. The gradens are pleasent and the buildings are nice and easy to navigate and explore. You might not need more than 90 minutes for this place though.

The gardens are beautiful! The Palace wasn’t much to see but once you go outside you will be amazed. The late afternoon is best.

The gardens are the star, the building pales in comparison. Lush gardens with lovely topiary and beautiful fountains.
