We were visiting Segovia and someone there told us there was an old summer royal palace nearby so we decided to drop by. It was a pleasant surprise! We did not go into the palace but we were roaming in the enormous garden with numerous status and fountains. it was very beautiful! If you are visiting Segovia and you have... More

We stayed at the Parador de la Granja and walked to the Palacio in the morning, although we didn't visit the palacio itself since we were limited on time, we did visit the gardens which were well worth the visit. If you are visiting Segovia I highly recommend a side trip to see Palacio Real de la Granja

This is a must see. Smaller crowd and extensive gardens. I recommend taking the tour. There are many statues, fountains; inside there is an interesting clock collection and you will understand the lifestyle of the royals who occupied the palace

We visited on a Monday afternoon in September. The palace itself and several amenities (gift shop, cafe) were shut but the benefit was it was really quiet and it felt like we had much of the extensive gardens to ourselves. It's free to enter the gardens when the fountains aren't on. Being early autumn the leaves were beginning to change... More

We did not visit the palace interior but the surrounding village and extensive grounds are worth a visit. There are numerous large fountains and a cascade so try to visit when these are operating. Still a pleasant shady walk even if you visit at the wrong time!

We were not planning to stay in town too long, but the palace and the gardens were so nice we decided to spend more time there. Strongly recommended.

If you are not that used.to glamorous palaces and gardens you may enoy this one: palace is pretty good maintained it keeps quite a lot of the decoration, mainly paintings, escultures and some furniture. Gardens are huge, really huge and provide a sense of the wealth kings enjoyed in the past. This said, there are some things which require improvement:... More

This is a mini Versailles. The Gardens are lovely and you have a backdrop of mountains. Fabulous tapestries in the Palace. If yo are lucky when you buy entrance ticket to palace they give separate tickets for later to see the Water fountains turned on in garden. A man with a flag walks you round 5 separate fountains. They are... More

We stopped in La Granja to break our journey and visit the palace. The collection of tapestries is amazing. The building is lovely as are the gardens. Given the depradations that the place must have suffered in a land that has too much history it is inevitably restored and in some ways looked too new. This is of course much... More
