Between the Royal Palace and the river Tagus this 18th century Prince's Garden is decorated with sculptures, fountains and lofty trees from the Americas. It also houses a number of historic buildings.
Definitely worth while taking the time to slowly walk these gardens to better appreciate the atmosphere.

We were able to see most of the extensive gardens on the little train that covers most of the town and corners of the royal gardens. They pinpoint to secluded statues, museums on the premises and rare plants. Do take the train to get a very nice birds-view of these gardens.

Stayed at Le Jardin overnight on our return trip to Santander. Was greeted by same receptionist as last week, who instantly recognised us. She was very kind and efficient. Although breakfast does not start until 7, we were offered a drink and full choice of continental breakfast at 6.30. Great customer service.

This garden was beautiful and it has a lot of potential; it is such a relaxing place and the huge peacocks make for an even nicer experience.
However, when it's not Spring or Summer time, the grounds look very sad as the vegetation is directly impacted by the weather and it looks really dry and lonely.
The pictures you find online only reflect the beauty of this garden during the right seasons, otherwise, avoid!

This "Prince's Garden" is located a few hundred yards from the main entrance to the Royal Palace and Gardens. I preferred this larger park/garden, with distinct areas and attractions, to the ones surrounding the Palace. There is a second, smaller "house" that a prince had built in this location, and you pay 5 euros for admission (I didn't visit the interior, just walked around as I passed through the park). The Chinese Garden is charming. You might get lucky and see peacocks around the hedge-lined gardens! I loved the long, tree-lined pathways.
Put this on your list for when you visit Aranjuez!
