Travel Tales: La Granja, Spain

The Royal Palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso


After touring Segovia we hopped on a local bus filled with grandmas and
school children and headed into the hills to visit La Granja.


We arrived at the Palace with a large group of Spanish senior citizens and requested a tour in English.  We were the only English speakers so we had a private tour of the palace.  It is a restrained baroque style building with a large collection of beautiful tapestries.


The palace is surrounded by extensive French style gardens.


Our guide told us not to miss the gardens but be sure to exit the grounds before the gates were locked because...



...there are wolves.

We kept an eye on our watches.
