Travel Tips for Aranjuez

Ayuntamento in Aranjuez

by El_Sueco

This main square is an important meeting place for people living in Aranjuez. it was decorated with christmas tree and lamps and a Nacimiento (the stable with newborn Christ, Maria and Josef).
Plaza de la Constitución, s/n.

Jardín de la Isla

by El_Sueco

This "island" is formed by two currents of the river Tajo. During the times of the muselmans this was a cultivation, later on the royal family made it to a garden, whose walking paths was decorated with fountains. The first one you will meet is La Boticaria, then comes Hércules, Apolo, la del Reloy (the Clock), la del Niño de la Espina (the Christ child with the thorn), Venus, Diana and Baccus. To the left of the last one you will find the Plaza de Neptuno.
Further into the park in front of the open space there is this construction, that I so far can´t find any information about.

Palacio Real - Royal Palace Interior

by breughel

The interior of the Palacio Real of Aranjuez is well worthwhile to be visited. There are two tours possible: the "Salones Oficiales" official rooms and in addition the private rooms.
We visited the official rooms which were nicely decorated.
As the palace burned twice in the 17th c. and was each time rebuilt the décor is mainly from the 18th and 19th c.

The visit starts with the Queen's guard's hall in the west wing.
Most rooms show an often elegant furniture and decoration, the Bourbon monarchs of Spain had a good taste from what I have seen. A number of paintings are from the Italian Lucas Jordan.
The Queen's Chamber shows a tapestry belongs to the series Dido and Aeneas, woven in Brussels in the sixteenth century.
The Throne room, in the center of the north wing, has walls lined with red velvet. The furniture in the room belongs to the reign of Isabel II (19th c.).
Remarkable is the Porcelain Room considered as the masterpiece of the Royal Porcelain Factory of Buen Retiro in Madrid. The entire length of the walls and ceilings has a rich relief decoration of porcelain, a blend of rococo and chinoiserie styles, performed by Giuseppe Gricci between 1763 and 1765, by order of King Carlos III.
Other fine rooms are the Arab Saloon, modeled on a Hall of the Alhambra in Granada, and the Saloon of the "Papeles Chinos" decorated with more than 200 Chinese delicate watercolor paintings on rice paper (gift from the Emperor of China to Queen Isabella II).
In the east wing of the palace is the best preserved room of the palace, the Hall of Mirrors.
The visit of the official rooms ends with the vast King's Guard Chamber.

I remember the visit as a very pleasant one with few visitors although it was free on that Wednesday.

Open from Tuesday to Sunday 10 h - 17.15 h or 18.15 h from 1/04 - 30/09.
Closed on Mondays, 1 & 6/01, 1 & 31/05, 6/09, 1/11, 24, 25 & 31/12.

Official rooms price: Guided (Spanish) 5 €, free 4,50 €; reduced 2,50 € (5 - 16 yr),
Official + Private rooms: Guided 7 €, reduced 3 €.
Free on Wednesdays for EU citizens and Iberoamericans.

The Palace of Aranjueez

by ranger49

"So near - and yet so far.."

We arrived too late on a Saturday afternoon to make a worthwhile visit...

"...tomorrow is another day..."

...Never mind we would come back in the morning...

"... but it was Election Day.."

... in Spain all Royal Palaces were closed on Election Day!

So we only walked around the perimeter and spent a little time in the town near the hotel where we stayed . A few interesting looking shops and more tourist shops.

To make up for the disappointment we listened to Rodriguez's Concierto for Aranjuez in the car - all the way to Santander!

***ARANJUEZ***

"The Royal Palace and the Tajo River"

Aranjuez is not far from Madrid. You can make a one-day-trip there. With the train from Atocha you go there 30 minutes. There is the summer palace of the King`s family. There are a imposant palace and very beautiful gardens on the Tajo River. So when you want to take the rest of Madrid go to Aranjuez and enjoy it green and peace.

"the Garden of the Prince"

I have been here in summer, but I think there must be most beautiful in spring, when all bloom.

The lavender on the Palace courtyard.
