  • Absolutely stunning outdoor space. The expansive gardens and grounds could easily consume an entire day if not more if you were dedicated to exploring it all. Unfortunately the labyrinth is not practical in the winter months and the fountains are only in full display a few times a year. As for the palace it contains lovely tapestries along with busts, paintings, and frescoes in addition to several plaster casts. There is not of furniture and the rooms you can visit are limited but the gardens more than make up for it.

  • My husband and I took a train from Madrid to Segovia, then had a taxi take us to the Palace. We walked through the gardens first, then the Palace. The gardens are massive and beautiful, with impressive giant sequoia trees . The labyrinth was closed when we visited (December) and there was a little grotto at the back of the gardens that was closed to people. Inside the Palace it was mostly tapestries, art, statues, and beautiful crystal chandeliers. In my opinion, there weren't many rooms open for the public viewing, considering the size of the Palace. The Royal Pantheon's entrance was outside of the exit gate to the left. A guard was inside the door to confirm you have a ticket. Getting back to the train station was a bit trickier. We ended up going to a local restaurant and ask the bartender to call a taxi for us. He called a local driver for us (more of a personal driver for hire vs taxi; the same price as taxi) and it worked out without any problems. Overall it was a fun and interesting day trip from Madrid.

  • We only had one hour to closing and opted to just enjoy the gardens (they are free!) rather than rush through the palace. They are gorgeous. I can only imagine the splendor when the fountains are operating (they’re only turned on in August I believe). It is well-worth the stop. When I come back, I’ll give La Granja a good 4 hour block for the palace and gardens. The town looks cute and quaint too.

  • Calm and quiet place. Perfect for taking walks all over the gardens. The garden's fountains are often on, I recommend to check the timetable to ensure you can see the fountain's track

  • Worth a visit just for the sheer opulence and magnificence on show. Good audio visual guide available for hire. Fully accessible inside the house for wheelchair users with the staff making every effort to make sure you get full value out of the trip. The wall hangings are immense and the scale is breath taking. We didnt go on a day when the fountains were operating which was a shame because I would imagine it is even more impressive then.
