Aranjuez : Michelin's recommendations
The royal site at Aranjuez, appears as a peaceful oasis on the banks of the Tagus. The palace, embellished by the Bourbons in the 18C, houses a majestic staircase and a large number of decorated rooms that echo the design of Versailles. Outside, there is a magnificent formal garden embellished by sculpted fountains. The palace’s shaded avenues are a popular place for a stroll on Sundays for Madrileños escaping the Spanish capital.
