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.

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
