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.

When we visited the palace we went through the side gates and to the rear where we found magnificent gardens. Laid out formally and kept to perfection, they were a pleasure to see. There are fountains, cascades and statues of all kinds. Well worth a visit.

After reading reviews decided to visit. The park is really different with lots of amazing fountains. Having toured northern Spain this was something unique and a change from castles and cathedrals. The approach is lovely and the gardens are quite large so there is a fair amount of walking involved on rough paths. The only disappointment was that most if... More

We took a side trip to Segovia to visit the gardens at La Granja and were not disappointed! We were lucky to arrive just in time at 1pm on Sunday as the 15 metre high water fountain springs into life. Unfortunately to see all five fountains working you need to visit on a Saints day which I am sure aiming... More

We went on day indoor access was closed, and even in 3 hours only saw part of gardens. There are many shady walks so even fine on hot day. Make sure stop off at restroom at entrance beforehand. Each garden has different layout with beautiful fountains and canals with locks.

The fountains were off, it was freezing, no one was there, and it was super muddy. I love gardens and this was a major disappointment. I'm a world traveler who almost always feels an urge to return to all the places I have been to. I will never visit this place by choice again.

We enjoyed walking around and seeing the landscaping, fountains and statues. Interesting to see how they do repairs on the fountains. Recommend going during the summer.

Only 15 minutes drive from Segovia is this famous ,historic,opulent palace and gardens.Designed by the eccentric Filipe 2 of Spain. Well worth a visit.Be aware the spectacular garden fountains only operate at specific times .When we went it was 5.30pm,so time your visit to coincide.Also there isn't a cafe or restaurant.We took a short walk into the town and found...

Well worth a visit for a relaxing walk. We went on a Wednesday afternoon. No charge but quite a walk from the bus from Segovia - about 20 minutes. Beautiful gardens with some seating. Fountains visible but not turned on and place has an air of being refurbished. If you want a walk in lovely surroundings this is a good... More
