Portraits and information placards help you gain a deeper understanding of Spain’s royal history. The palace gardens are large, built to relieve royal residents from the dust and drought in this part of Spain. An onsite museum features a collection of Spain’s royal pleasure barges.

Tour lasted 50 minutes and was worth it, especially for someone with trouble walking a lot.
An absolute surprise. My expectations from outside were low, not due to the size or impressive architecture, but due to a lack of knowledge about the significance of Aranjuez to the Spanish Royal Family. It seems the palace.qas well loved and used as a Spring time retreat and the details of the palace and decoration we gorgeous and impressive. No photos allowed so very I can't show you except for the entrance which only hints at what is inside.
Worth a visit. The building itself is quite impressive and a couple of the rooms are quite stunning. The garden is free to wandering around.
