Immediately after lunch time at the Physical Sciences building, we will go by bus to Aranjuez (see here for city information in Spanish). Aranjuez was a Spanish Royal court residence from the 15th century. During the 17th century it prospered as the spring annual abode of royalty, a place of pageantry, hunting, and a source of inspiration for the patronage of some of the greatest Spanish writers. During the Age of Enlightenment the city reached its maximum splendour and musicians, composers, painters, architects and other artists surrounding the court left their imprints in the town, gardens and buildings.

There will be an English guided visit to the Royal palace and a guided walking tour around Aranjuez historical gardens (Isla, Parterre and Principe) and the fountains they contain.
