Royal Site Of Aranjuez Half-Day Tour | What To Expect:

Located 42 km south of Madrid is the royal town of Aranjuez. The town's prestigious links to the Spanish Crown date back to the 15th century rule of Ferdinand II and Isabella I, when they converted it into an official royal site. It was likely chosen by the monarchs due to its proximity to the capital and the fact that site lies in a fertile river valley. Good soil and easy access to water gave rise to what is arguably one of the most beautiful public gardens in Spain.

Aranjuez's 'Jardin del Principe', is composed of a Botanical Garden, a Chinese Garden, the Real Casa del Labrador, and the Museo de Falúas Reales. The latter houses a wonderful collection of royal pleasure barges and will feature as the second highlight on the tour after the Royal Palace.

The town centrepiece, its Royal Palace on the banks of the Tagus River, was constructed by order of Philip II during the second half of the 16th century. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, you will explore various areas of the palace such as the Porcelain Chamber and Throne Room, as well as the Museum of Royal Feluccas*.

*NOTE. The Museum of Royal Feluccas cannot be visited on October tours for technical reasons.
