Royal Site of Aranjuez
Located between the Tagus and Jarama rivers, was used as a royal residence in the time of the Catholic Monarchs. Philip II started to build the palace with the same architects of El Escorial, Juan Bautista de Toledo and Juan de Herrera. The building was completed during the reign of Ferdinand VI, with the addition of two wings under Charles III.
In the outbuildings of the ground floor is the "Life Museum in Palace" with curious pieces about everyday life in the Royal Residences.
