Ironically this is the second banana to the Aranjuez palace when this is the real main event. It is as the title indicates "magnificent". Almost every room is not merely lavishly decorated, but exhibiting exquisite craftsmanship and good taste. Simply put, for the size of...More

This palace is the most well preserved place in Aranjuez. It was built at the beginning of the 19th century as a place for receptions and celebrations, that's why the decorations are excellent. It's not easy to visit the place because only a few people...More

You’ll walk a long way in the Prince’s Park wondering if you’ll ever get there, but be brave and walk on, for it’s worth the effort! The advertising says something about “labourers,” and maybe even “cottage,” but don’t be fooled. This is the most amazingly...More

Well worth a visit to see the beautiful furnishings that have been untouched and kept as they were. Guided tour is very interesting. 5 euros to enter. Tour lasts about 45 minutes. I would recommend this place

Half September this year I visited Aranjuez for a whole day, combining the royal palace, the gardens and the Casa del Labrador. Before I travelled to Madrid some days earlier, I did order a ticket for the Casa del Labrador through the website of Patrimonio...More

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,...More

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.
