Home to the Palacio Real, Aranjuez has been a Royal Estate since Philip II in 1560. Located just a few miles south of the capital city Madrid, the town has a strong Basque heritage and many historical landmarks. The town will appeal to those who want to experience Spanish culture and history without the hustle and bustle of larger metropolitan areas such as Madrid and Barcelona. In 2001 the town was declared as a World Heritage Site, and earlier in 1983 was declared Conjunto Histórico-Artístico ("Historic Artistic Junction").

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Aranjuez
The local Spaniards live by a routine which is very much dominated by the climate, preferring to head indoors (and in many cases closing shops) during the very hot midday sun. For this reason you should ensure that you carry around some bottled water. The close proximity to Madrid means that many locals and shop clerks will speak English, however it would be considered polite to carry a phrase book and attempt to communicate in Spanish. Aranjuez has a centralized location, allowing you to use the town as a springboard to jump start an adventure into Madrid or further afoot into Spain. You can use the Venere website to see exactly where your hotel is situated, allowing you to have a virtual tour of the area via Google maps so that you can plan your holiday in advance.
