While I love La Granja de San Ildefonso, going there on the day when the fountains were on (4-5 in the year) was a real challenge, and also quite stressful to be honest. For background, the palace, modelled after Versailles, was the summer palace of...More

We walked through the gardens and toured the fountains. They are only turned on for 10 minutes three times a year, which is quite a sight to see (check it out on YouTube). They are still worth seeing without water, and the different type of...More

These gardens were designed by the same person who did Versailles Gardens, before Versailles. Beautiful work. Worth visiting and detour when visiting Segovia. There is a crystal factory with very beautiful things to buy.

The gardens are amazing, much more beautiful than the royal gardens in Madrid. Don't miss the lake on the top for a serenity break.
