These gardens are only 5km east of Segovia and are truly a gem. Many Trip Advisor contributors are urging that they not be missed. We took that advice and are exhilarated as a result. The gardens and grounds are incredibly well maintained. They contain a combination of formal and informal areas set on a vast amount of land. Water features... More

Put aside a considerable amount of time when visiting here, as there is so much ground to cover. Importantly make sure your camera is well charged and there is plenty of space on your memory card because you will need it. It is like a garden within a forest with loads of fountains and statues. Takes about 25 minutes from... More

A few miles away from the town of Segovia, the Royal Palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso is a beautiful palace and gardens and definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. In addition to a stunning palace, equally as impressive are the gardens and fountains that surround the palace. Planned like something you would see from... More

In winter the parking is not difficult. The Royal Palace is impressive, the gardens are clean and they run some three fountains. The shop in the Palace have some nice objects, like the replicas of cristal vessels made at the Real Fábrica de Cristal.

These are exquisite gardens in the hill-foot of the Somosierra area, very near the city of Segovia. Cool air, steep walk through beautiful alleys that are crowned by the "reservoir": an artificial lake that fed the very many fountains present in the grades (beware: the fountains only work 2 or 3 days a year; but the walk is totally worthwhile)....

these gardens were designed to be a spanish Versalles-like version of royal gardens. The hydrodinamics are awsome. There is a lot to see and walk around, like a full day if you like to explore. Several fountains are scattered around the different arrangements of gardens, fake caverns, and statues.

You can spend all day wandering through the gardens. They vary from manicured to wild. I only wish the fountains had been flowing.

Set upon the mountain ranges and in a quaint little town, the 30 minute bus ride from Segovia is well worth it.The palace is beautiful and the gardens and fountains are well kept. It offers a tranquil and serene opportunity from the bustle and aching feet of walking Segovia.
