Ancient city and World Heritage Site, Segovia is to the north-west of Madrid, beyond the Sierra De Guadarrama.
Royal Palace of la Granja de San Ildefonso
Just a short distance from Segovia, in the hills next to the Sierra, is La Granja, the former summer residence of the Royal Family. Modelled on Versailles, the house and grounds are laid out in an idyllic setting beneath the mountains, which provide the water for the numerous beautiful, gravity-fed fountains. A perfect location for a day trip and picnic.
Also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Todelo has a rich variety of ancient and interesting places to visit. The most famous artist born here was 'El Greco', many of whose paintings were painted in and around the city.
Apparently named after the Basque word for hawthorn, Aranjuez is just outside Madrid's southern city limits. The Concertio De Aranjuez, by Rodrigo, made Aranjuez famous the world over.
