The Palace used to be the summer residence of the Spanish Bourbons. The gardens are beautiful especially in spring and autumn. The precious fountains are put in place only 2 o3 days a year one of them is on 25 August, day of Saint Louis. There are wonderful walks.

The gardens of La Granja palace were the last stop of our visit to Segovia. Very beautiful place to visit in a summer evening. Wide avenues lined by trees, fountains, sculpture, and the view of the Palace at some turns.

The place has potential to be one of the most beautiful gardens I've seen... The problem was that it did not seem well kept. Some places looked dirty and it just took something away from this amazing place. I will hopefully be going in summer and hoping it was just the case because it was February.

After hearing so much about this place it really was a let down. Don't get me wrong there is notjing wrong with it (apart from a severe lack of parking at peak times). It just didn't rock my boat. Will not return.

On our way from Madrid to Segovia we stopped at this amazing place. We walked thru the garden (park) around the main house and where amazed about all the fountains and sculptures. It's all very well maintained and even though it was Jan 1st, so winter time, we were lucky to have a sunny day and be able to enjoy... More

The gardens were neglected, very little blooming, and none of the fountains were working. In season, in good weather it could be a beutiful place to stop and visit.

Yes we really toured on a rainy, windy day and still loved these gardens! That is how wonderful they are. This is well worth the 6 mile drive from Segovia (city). The wonderful fountains are only operating during certain months- but are still so lovely. Really the huge, stately trees at the entrance to the grounds are alone worth the... More

We spent 2 hours walking around the grounds. If it hadn't been raining we'd have lingered another hour. The park is full of broad tree lined avenues, statue filled fountains, and sculpture. at any point we had trouble deciding what to see next as there is something to see in every direction. We finally decided on a zig-zag approach trying... More

Think you are 17 and born in Versailles, grandson of the "golden king" and suddenly you are told you are the king of Spain. Think you are a refined an educated person, lover of culture and Nature in its more pure sense. Think of the wilder area you can find near where you have to "work": Madrid's Court, and not... More

Wow! What an incredible place to visit! Think of Versailles and this place is just as good, the fountains and sculptures are amazing! Free entrance! We got there early to avoid the crowds, plan your route to ensure you see all The best places! Just wonderful!
