This palace is over an hour drive away from Madrid. It is huge!! Could not see the interior since it was close when we arrive, but the exterior is inviting. You must search diligent for times and entrance cost, since it a a long drive...More

Just pay the money and walk round, it is truly awesome. It cost 9 euros but there are concessions. It only takes around and hour and a half.

Not sure if marketing is something that they simply don’t do in Spain, but this palace received only scant mention anywhere I looked despite being a large, well-preserved Royal site with as much as 8 hours of interpretive materials loaded onto a mini tablet. The...More

The trip on the train is nice enough, getting to Aranjuez takes about an hor from Madrid. The palace is the centerpiece of town and well worth the trip. The palace is huge, the gardens equally big and peaceful, a nice getaway from the city....More

In contrast with the constant crowds in Madrid, Aranjuez is surprisingly quiet despite of its proximity to the capital. The palace is an often overlooked sight that has almost no tourists. Apart from the huge garden, the former royal residence is elegantly decorated and lavishly...More

Not the best Palace we've seen but a solidly nice one. Well decorated and preserved rooms, but not so many that you get overload. "Oriental" rooms were our favorites. If you are passing by its a good stop.
