Discover The Royal Palace of Aranjuez Spain

29 mi south of the capital, the town of Aranjuez is located in a fertile plain through which run the Tagus and Jarama rivers. The Royal Palace, with its luxurious interior, typical of the 18th entury, used to be the spring and summer residence of the Bourbons and it is one of the greatest architectural works of art in Spain. It is part of the select club of Spanish Royal National Heritage Sites. You will be able to admire the throne room with its beautiful Flemish tapestries, the Porcelain chamber, a work of art brought to us by the Royal Porcelain Factory of Buen Retiro, the Chinese drawing room with over 200 water colours on rice paper (a gift from the Emperor of China to Queen Isabella of Castile) and the smoking chambers, in the Mozarab style, inspired by the smoking chamber in Granada's Alhambra palace. The palace is also famous for its superb and vast gardens and its beautiful fountains on the edge of the Tagus; a welcome, cool oasis in the scorching summer of the Castilian Meseta plateau.
