All the rooms were amazingly decorated! Such attention to detail is amazing and also the Palace is not too big to walk around with children! I enjoyed this house but take a jumper as it can be cold inside.

This palace is much nicer than the other one at El Escorial or even the one in Madrid. Its a massive place with wide spaces outside with ample parkland. Many rooms furnished with period furniture heavily influenced by Isabella II. The Royals also laid out the town of Aranjuez with its wide boulevards and ample space. Half an hour and... More

This was an average palace. The arabian study was the best room but of course it was stocked with security to make sure you didn't take photos. Keep your coat with you, its freezing inside the palace!

Well worth taking a train from Atocha and visiting this palace. A lot smaller than the capital's but still an amazing place, it has lots of different themed rooms and is like something out of fairytale. The surrounding gardens are also beautiful and there's also a river that you can walk along. Afterwards you can have lunch in any of... More

We stop in Aranjuez by chance. It is worth while going and visiting the royal palace as well as the Casa del Labrador located few kilometres away in the attached gardens. The various rooms give a good idea on how life was for the kings; very impressive. Rooms (and related decor) in the Casa del Labrador are even more impressive... More

I went to Aranjuez on the recommendation of a colleague from work, and was blown away by the palace and the gardens. It is so different from the Royal Palace in the centre of Madrid! For a start I did not have to wait in a long queue to get in, and the surroundings are stunning. In fact, the palace... More

The sheer size of the place and a couple of the rooms are just amazing. The surrounding gardens and garden fountains are just a pleasure. Just up the road (short drive) is the Cortijo de San Isidro which is another Spanish Patrimonio well worth a visit (I went there several years ago).

My stop in Aranjuez was accidental - I didn't even know the palace was there. However I was glad to have had the chance to visit it. There were very few tourists there so the stroll through was very relaxed. With audioguide I spent about 1 hour. I enjoyed the Casa del Labrador (separate review) even more. Note - the... More

I didn't idea that is place was so wonderful until I visited. Near Madrid, 30 minutes by train at Atocha station. Was a nice one day trip because there there was coffee shops and typical spanish restaurants. Beautiful palace and small city!
