“Great gardens to enjoy strolling & gasping at sculptures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Quite extended park, so if you like walking & cooling down on a hot day or, as we had to do, staying warm on a cold day, this is the perfect place. Especially the big trees, the big pond/lake at the end (look for the wonderful wooden bridge), the (sometimes really bizarre) sculptures in the fountains and the labyrinth are very enjoyable.

“beautiful french style gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

very beautiful gardens with amazing fountains and carvings, woodland areas, old chestnut trees, acres and acres of forests and stunning features, well worth going to (free).

“Fountains off!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

So disappointed that fountains were turned off at the end of the summer! It must be spectacular with the water on, but I had to use my imagination.

“The Gardens of La Granja”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Lovely gardens and so many fountains but I think they would have looked so much nicer if the fountains were on, maybe there was a shortage of water? The maze was a bit dissappointing.

The fountains in the palace gardens were just amazing - even though we were thoroughly soaked!
