The king Felipe V loved hunting in the forests right outside of Segovia. And at the begining of the XVIII he decided to build a summer palace at the foot of the Guadarrama Mountains. Having been raised in the French Court he brought French architects to design the beautiful gardens. The result was a small copy of Versaille. Our healthy walk takes us from one of the hills inside the gardens all the way down to the Palace while we admire the vegetation, some of the fountains and we talk about the king’s life in La Granja. Get your hiking shoes on and join me in this romantic garden walk!

Thank you for a great tour Jesús . I apologize for confusing your name. I had just spoken with my cousin Jorge in Asturias and his name slip out “sin pensarlo”. You know I know you and love your tours. La Granja is a magnificent place and you took us around some beautiful spots and then, you finished with un “broche de oro” when they opened that incredible fountain. It was a glorious end to a great and very enjoyable tour. Gracias Jesús.

A fascinating, beautiful place, and the tour was delivered with Jesus's customary charm and flair. I wonder if Jesus might talk next time a bit more about the history of Philip V, and of some of the later kings and queens who inhabited the palace.
