A lovely palace with some nice gardens . In fact the whole of the town is pretty and full of parks with plenty of places to walk. Getting in was difficult as the ticket machines failed to work and there were long queues at the desks. Once inside it was fairly average and no photographs > loved the arab room... More

We visited the palace in the early afternoon and it was not crowded, the rooms and furnishings are beautiful and well worth a visit. There is detailed information in each room if you don't want to use the audio guide. The gardens are well worth a visit and the fountains are fantastic.

It is worth visiting, if you like this type of palaces. Luxury at the extreme, no matter if the citizens were starving. It was a sort of summer palace. A lot of chambers and rooms were built and rebuilt through the centuries, following the european fashion at each time. Lots of wasted money. Anyway, a look at the past and... More

Worth the visit - room after room of very cool artifacts, pictures and furniture. Very similar to Madrid's royal palace (but much less crowded!)

If you have 9 euros to burn then maybe ( but only maybe) it's worth the hour just to see how some Spanish culture didn't develop very well through the centuries! As with lots of history run by ' national patrimony ' the building is a lost gem that got buried and once found , someone forgot to scrape off... More

So, it looks like the Royal Palace from Madrid, it has beautiful gardens where you can relax. You need 3 - 4 hours if you want to visit the palace inside and the gardens.

I did not enter the palace itself, but I strolled the beautiful gardens around it. Well maintained, an ideal place to love nature and enjoy the sun in early spring.

We visited on a rainy March day - not many visitors. The overall impact is dramatic especially when you think that this is not the main residence of the Royal Family. Some of the rooms are special - others bit ordinary. The Arab rooms was exceptional. Annoyed that photographs are not permitted so we have no memories of the visit... More
