This palace is the summer residence of the kings of Spain. It is located at a distance of 48 kilometers from the capital.
In the 16th century, the king of Spain ordered the creation of a project for a summer residence. Famous architects Juan Bautiste de Tolede and Juan de Herrere took over the design. The construction of the palace took a hundred years. Later, 2 more wings were added to the palace. In the 18th century, it was so badly damaged by a fire that it had to be rebuilt almost from scratch.
A garden was laid out around the palace so that the king's family would not suffer from heat and dust. The fact that the residence is right next to the Tagus River also contributes to the freshness of the air.
