Yes, Aranjuez is a music!
As a matter of fact one of the prettiest ever made, but it is also a small and quiet town 50 km from Madrid or Toledo, marking the entrance to La Mancha.
A royal palace (that I had no time to visit) and its gardens are a reference to romance, and to a fabulous music that... you know!
Well, once a month, on the first sunday of the month you can catch an aerial display of some beautifully restaured and maintained vintage aircraft. Before the aerial display there is a guided talk through the aviation museum (in Spanish) and then comes the aerial display which lasts about an hour. This is something that tourists don't find out about, it doesn't seem to get any publicity but it's well worth going along on a clear day. It's located about 5 minutes outside Madrid.
