The Royal Palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso is an eighteenth-century palace, situated in the small town of San Ildefonso in the hills near Segovia, 80 km north of Madrid. The palace is in a restrained baroque style surrounded by extensive gardens in the French manner and sculptural fountains.
Only three times per year all twenty-six fountains are set to play, providing a memorable show:
- 30th May
- 25th July
- 25th August
Remember to follow the man with the Spanish flag, because he is showing the route to the next fountain that will play.
So, this year, as 25th July was Saturday, we took the chance to go to "the fountains show". And after that, and a magician show, we went to Segovia in order to make a little visit (I have to wait for Cochinillo to the next visit).
