“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

Nice gardens, beside a river teeming with Trout? Impressive building particularly from the front. Go and see it if you're in the area.

“You Need a Full Day to See it All”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We enjoyed touring the beautiful rooms of the palace and walking through the Gardens de la Isla. There are so many things to see in the other set of gardens, Jardin del Principe, and we didn't have time to see it all. We visited the Museum of the Royal Barges and that was a unique museum in a beautiful park setting. Just wish we could have seen more of the sights in the Jardin de Principe, but we ran out of time.
The tourist information office in Aranjuez was very helpful. They give everyone a great map.

“Peace and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed four hours touring and then walking here. Take the tourist mini train first and you will see the town and the gardens and understand how big the latter are!

Yes it was still not spring and no fountain was working but there was great peace, clean air, the river, some wonderful topiary. Take your music with you. Take a picnic. Imagine the scenes when the Hapsburgs were the dominant power in Europe. This place and the Escurial cry out to be visited. Do it.
