My wife and I visited the Palace in July 2013. We took a cab from Segovia and it is about 20 minutes away. This place is beautiful. We went into the Palace first and it was great. Many rooms to see with painitngs, statues, ceilings, walls, fountains. Each room is unique and beautiful. There is a placard in both English and Spanish telling you about each room. There are many rooms so it probably takes an hour to tour. Out to the gardens. Beautiful. The roses were in bloom so lots of color. The gardens/grounds are huge and there are many grand fountains all through the property. Very nice. We spent probably 1.5 hours walking around. Very cool and very pleasant even in July at midday. We were suprised that we did not see any advertisement for this place in Segovia. We came accross it by accident. It was one of our favorite places in our month long trip to Spain. There were little or no crowds. The fountains only run when royalty is in town staying there. The folks at the Palace said it is not realistic to run them on a daily basis due to cost. I can see why they would do that. It does not matter the place is awesome. Don't miss this place. And the little town seemed very nice with Cafe's and a nice square.

This is a wonderful place to visit over vast area lots to see in the palace and gardens and monuments are outstanding . Before you go check to see if the fountains are going to be put on this is a must see. The next date for this to happen is on 25th July you must pay 4 euros well worth it.

Gem of a palace and beautful gardens. Best to visit from May to October. If coming from Madrid make sure your car is suitable for snow, as you have to go via pass up to 1900m altitude.

I just had the chance to visit the gardens, is winter time so all is with snow, is beautiful aswell seeing all white, the fountains and sculptures. The gardens were inspired in the gardens of Versailles Palace in France and i really suggest a visit, is a very nice town! :)

We took the tour which was informative. Unfortunately the fountains weren't on because it was winter and thus the gardens were not in bloom either. Though I imagine the would be spectacular when they are. We hoofed it up to the little lake that is part of the palaces property, very tranquil. Nice idea to take a picnic with you and make a day of it if you have the time and the weather is right.
