We casually walked in through the entrance gate expecting nothing more than a large park and were completely blown away by the gardens and the fountains. Even with the fountains not playing, and many dry,it's still worth a visit. Sadly we only went in about 7:20 pm so had very limited time to walk around and admire the gardens. The... More

While it is a bit difficult to get to, it is definitely worth the time to visit. From the spectacular fountains to the gorgeous palace and gardens, it is an excellent spot to visit.

La Granja is a lovely visit. An opulent palace and simply stunning gardens which we had almost to ourselves ~ a lovely contrast to the iPad wielding throngs at the similar Versailles. The tapestries were incredible!

Not very spectacular at the present but they are improving them. These are not particular well planted and have large compartments of wilderness which you have to pass to visit all the fountains. I would recommend that if possible visit on the days that they are playing there are over twenty fountains to be found. With the more spectacular nearer... More

Take the time and go visit the palace a copy of Versailles . I would recommend to start at the glass museum to see the history of glass and glass in Spain and how it furnished the palace from Windows to chandeliers. Then walk the park there is a maze it takes about 45 min to do it. Too many... More

If I were short of time I would skip la Granja, as Segovia has more to offer. But on a sunny day it is a pleasant walk around the gardens. It would be much enhanced by some explanations about which statue represents what - the labelling was sparse. The fountains were not on when we visited - if you want... More

This palace always serves as the pseudo Versailles of France, but why not? It was designed with that one in mind. It has fountains, statues, huge spaces, and the best collection of tapestries from 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. It is a great place to see the fountains shoot up water 25 feet or more in the air and get... More

This was one of the most beautiful Paliace and gardens in all of Europe. The furnishings and restoration of the room, all 53'of them were overwhelming. Allow a minimum of three hours and go in the morning. Have lunch in La Granja.

Wow! Even though they did not have the fountains on the day we visited, the gardens are magnificent and awe inspiring. The fact that there are water features throughout is an amazing feat. I guess not when you have the money of the Spanish crown when conceiving the gardens. The gardens seem to go on forever. Even bigger than those... More
