Not quite on the same size level as Versailles but just as beautiful and much more quiet. They gardens go on forever and what makes them unique is the copper coloured fountain statues. Most statues around Europe tend to be stone so, visually, it is exquisite. It's a shame that the cost to run the fountains is high. It would... More

These gardens are absolutely expectacular and can give you a taste of how the old Spanish monarchy used to live. There is lots of space to walk and take beautiful pictures. The environment is really relaxing and the air is clean as oppossed to the cities we usually lived. This is a must see attraction it is really one of... More

Reminds you of being at Versailles. The grounds are spectacular with 40 plus fountains throughout. In the fall you can see all the changing colors and in the spring the fountains are turned on.

This place was made with peace in mind. You can just wander through the gardens an let the cares of the world pass you by. It was so peaceful and quiet.

Such a gorgeous place to wander around and gasp at the sheer beauty of it all. We didn't have time to go in the actual Palace, but wandering around outside was enough. Beautiful architecture, built when the French Kings reigned in Spain so very similar to 'The Palace of Versailles'. Fantastic fountains, walk ways, hedges etc and all against the... More

These gardens are incredibly beautiful with the mountains behind. I could have easily spent a whole day there. Unfortunately most of the fountains were off in October, I should definitely go back in summertime. This is a recommendable place to visit on your way to Segovia.
