THE ROMANTIC ARANJUEZ.

by breughel

""Concerto of Aranjuez""

Listening to the "Concerto of Aranjuez" by the Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo, written in 1939 for guitar and orchestra, I remembered the wonderful discovery of this city and its royal palace.
To all those who want to visit, only 55 km south of Madrid, one of the most charming towns in Castile, I recommend Aranjuez with its castle and parks.
I deeply regret not being able to return. I found some pictures of our visit in 2005 while we stayed in Chinchon.
Aranjuez is certainly less known than Toledo, but well worth a detour.

"ARANJUEZ LA ROMANTIQUE."

En écoutant le "Concierto de Aranjuez" du compositeur espagnol Joaquin Rodrigo écrit en 1939 pour guitare et orchestre je me suis souvenu de la merveilleuse découverte de cette ville et de son palais royal.
A tous ceux qui veulent visiter, à 55 Km au sud de Madrid, un endroit des plus romantiques je conseille Aranjuez avec son château et parcs.
Je regrette vivement de ne pouvoir y retrourner. J'ai retrouvé des photos de notre visite en 2005 alors que nous logions à Chinchon.
Aranjuez est certes moins connu que Toledo mais vaut vraiment le petit détour.

Which peaceful place!

"Palacio Real"

This location is renowned for being a Royal Retreat with an impressive "Palacio Real" and the surrounding magnificent gardens. Although recorded as being inhabited since Roman times and later by the Order of Santiago, the Palace built on the order of King Philip V has been a residence of the Spanish Kings since the 15th Century. Plagued by a history of fires and subsequent reconstructions it still continues to maintain its original architectural unity.

The "Jardín del Parterre" garden is adorned with numerous sculptures, while the "Jardín de la Isla" stands out for its classical fountains. The "Jardín del Príncipe" is a Spanish version of a typical English-style garden of the same period. The "Casa del Labrador" is an unashamed imitation of the "Petit Trianon" at Versailles. This hunting pavilion was constructed by order of King Carlos IV and is to be found in the "Jardín del Príncipe".

Aranjuez is located in the south of Madrid, near the Tajo River for this reason has a special vegetation and weather conditions.

It is a modern, well-developed town, with typical restaurants on the banks of the Tajo River, where you should not miss the opportunity to try the typical asparagus and strawberries in the magic surroundings of the palace, gardens and fountains.

I love the view of this building. It is actually the extension of the police station in Aranjuez. I could not leave without taking this photo.

Look at the finishing touches on the facade..... if you can see them :-)
