The Royal Palace of Aranjuez (SpanishPalacio Real de Aranjuez) is a former royal residence of Spanish royalty. Located in the town of Aranjuez, it is open to the public as one of several Spanish royal sites in the Community of MadridSpain. It was established around the time Philip II of Spain moved the capital from Toledo to Madrid. Aranjuez became one of four seasonal seats of government, occupied during springtime (from about holy week). Thereafter, the court moved successively to RascafríaEl Escorial, wintering in Madrid.
In 1931, during the Second Spanish Republic the area was declared an Artistic Historical Monument and opened to the public. - in: wikipedia
