My favorite attraction in Aranjuez! This neoclassical building, situated at the far end of Jardin del Principe, houses a collection of priceless treasures. Silk lined walls, painted ceilings and stone fitted floors form the background scenario against which countless works of art are displayed: paintings, original greek busts, some italian sculptures, furniture and a collection of rare and almost priceless...

After a pleasant hike through the park the exterior of the house looms and is impressive with statues and a courtyard. Alas, only group tours in Spanish entertained. No information in English and rather grumpy staff. No facilities.

Walking through the galleries is like walking the past in history. Immense corridors, with hundreds of dwellings, large gardens and big plaza area.

After walking 3km in blistering heat to get here I am met by a rude man who tells me guided tours only and that the next is at 7pm...it is currently 5.30pm. Very disappointed about the lack of information given.

The guided tour was well beyond my expectations. Having the opportunity to explore the hunting palace almost as it was 200 years ago is a rare privilege. Some of the rooms were as magnificent as Versailles, with the added bonus that all--paintings, ceilings, floors, silks, draperies, furniture, is the original one!! A must see.

We had a lovely walk through the gardens along the river and past numerous fountains to find this delightful palace. There are English guided tours daily (check times with your hotel or on website) but we turned up in the morning and English tour was late afternoon. Althought the guides spoke good English the tour we took was in Spanish... More

Being retirees we cannot walk far so opted for the Chiqui train tour of the gardens. It proved a wise move as the weather was not kind. Would like to see the gardens again in summer.

You have to visit this place on a guided tour and this has to be booked in advance. In late March I visited the Royal Palace at 10am as soon as it opened. They booked the ticket for me to see Casa del Labrador at 3.30 the same day on the English speaking tour. It cost 5 euros and there... More

This small palace was built for the pleasure of the king, using the most expensive materials (marble, silk, precious wood and other). There are no bed rooms as it was not meant for living there, but only for amusement activities. Unfortunately, the moment we visited it, the surrounding park was closed for improvement reasons. Tickets may be bought from the... More

What really calls your attention is the park garden, and then you discover the building. They both play an important role amongst the old district of Aranjuez.
