We whiled away a few hours in the Gardens of La Granja. They are simply stunning. There is a small chirinquito in the garden where we sat watching the chaffinches over a fizzy water and beer. There are many large water features and flowers are abundant. If you have around an hour you could try the maze. There is a... More

The maze was closed when we went and the fountains were not running but it is free and lots of space to run around and possibly bike (not for me though)

Los Jardines are a nice place to stroll around after you had a heavy lunch in Segovia. It is really worth to go there , only a few miles away. The gardens are lavish and inmense. Unfortunately the fountains work only a few days a year so you only see the skeleton of them. But the sculptures deserve the visit.... More

Amazing place! terrific gardens, one of the most beautiful places I have ever been in my life. If you come to Madrid, please visit it. There are also light shows with the fountains in there. Great places to have real food in the town.

Entrance is free. Immediately after you get there is a place selling drinks with wicker chairs outside. Take a granizado (crushed ice drink) or a horchata (almond milk drink) or whatever you fancy. Easy on the alcohol, because you can walk for hours in the park. Even in July, which should be high season the Sunday afternoon park was nearly... More

A visit to Segovia if you are spending a few days in Central Spain, the areas around Madrid, is a MOST ! San Ildefonso is a 15 minute drive from this gem that transcends millenniums. Beautiful surroundings. Great to walk around the village, one with a variety of tapas bars and good garden side restaurants. Very enjoyable experience !

We came here to see the gardens and the house on a Wednesday. The house was well furnished in period furniture even though much of it was not originally used at La Granja. The gardens are elaborate and filled with fountains. Like most grand gardens, they cannot turn on the fountains often. That day, 1 of the large fountains was... More

This is a MUST SEE in the Segovia area when the fountains are working: Wednesdays and Saturdays the first fountain starts at 17:30 and the last one 19:00 and Sundays 13:00 - 14:30. You walk from fountain to fountain together with hundreds of people which is an event in itself. The fountains and the route of the working fountains is... More

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.
