The Royal Palace of Aranjuez is a former Spanish royal residence. It is located 50km south of Madrid in the town of Aranjuez.
It was established around the time Philip II of Spain moved the capital from Toledo to Madrid. Aranjuez became one of four seasonal seats of government, occupied during the springtime. Thereafter, the court moved successively to Rascafría, El Escorial and wintered in Madrid.
Several international treaties were signed there and several members of the royal family died there, including:
Oct - Mar: Tue - Sun: 10 am - 6 pm
Apr - Sep: Tue - Sun: 10 m - 8 pm
Closed: 1 and 6 January, 1 May and 24, 25 and 31 December and days of official events announced on the National Heritage website.
