The merienda will be at THE PARADOR OF LA GRANJA, while on Sunday after a full breakfast we can accompany you to a longer tour THAT WILLSIMPLY SAVE YOU TO PAY FOR ANOTHER DAYOF ACCOMODATIONS IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE REGIONAL TOURS OR OTHER CITIES SUCH AS BILBAO, LERMA, AVILA OR OTHERS. which you can choose at whim.. In all 150 euros for the romantic weekend (includes food, tours and gasoline. it also includes the entry charge to any of the museums and or tours not to be paid to us but the cost will be assumed by us as part of the romantic week end. the price of admission to the Esteban Vicente MUSEUM OR THE MUNICIPAL MUSEUM BOTH THE ONLY TWO STRUCTURES THAT ARE OF A MODERN STYLE AND BOTH WELL DONE.The PRICE FOR ACCOMODATION WILL STILL BE 80 EUROS A NIGHT..THERE ARE SO MANY TOURISTS ATTRACTIONS THAT YOU SIMPLY WILL NOT HAVE ENOUGH WITH ONE DAY. I RECOMMEND THE THREE DAY STAY IN ORDER TO SEE MOST OF THE SPECTACULAR SIGHTS: ROMAN ACQUEDUCT, MEDIEVAL CASTLES OF GREAT HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE, THE MUSEUMS OF MODERN ART, GOTHIC CATHEDRAL AND A HOST OF MEDIEVAL CHURCHES AND SOME STRUCTURES AND BUILDINGS FROM THE 16TH CENT AND THE STORES, RESTAURANTS, SOUVENIR SHOPS AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST THE GASTRONOMY OFFERINGS OF THE REGIONAL CUISINE BASED ON QUITE A FEW DISHES : CASTILLIAN SOUP MADE WITH EGGS, BREAD GARLIC AND RED PAPRIKA; JUDIONES DE LA GRANJA; WOOD STOVE GRILLED KID LAMB AND RECENTLY BORN PIGLETS ACCOMPANIED BY APPROPIATE SPANISH WINES THAT ARE GOOD AND DELICIOUS AS WELL AS INEXPENSIVE. THERE ARE ALSO REGIONAL DESSERTS LIKE THE PONCHE SEGOVIANO. AFTERWARDS A WALK IN THE TOWN WILL ACHIEVE A BEAUTIFUL END TO THE WEEKEND. THERE IS A PLETHORA OF SPORTS TO BE EXPERIENCED SUCH AS WIND SURFING IN SELF PROPELLED PARACHUTES; RIDING HORSES SCHOOLS, THERE IS A POLO GROUND; HIKING, WALKING TOURS AND TROUT FISHING. THERE ARE OTHER LESS STRENOUS SPORTS LIKE SWIMMING; AND THE TOUR TAKING ROUTES THAT ARE OFFERED BY YOUR HOSTS AND THERE ARE SO MANY VIEWS THAT YOU WILL NEED EXPLANATIONS TO SORT THEM OUT . THE MANY IMAGES IN YOUR MIND WILL HAVE CONCRETE FACTS TO MAKE THE VIEWS MEMORABLE. AN EXAMPLE WHICH IS PLAIN AND VERY ORDINARY IS THE DIFFERENT ARCHITECTURAL STYLES SUCH AS MEDIEVAL, HIGH AND LOW STYLES, GOTHIC EARLY AND LATE STYLES AND ITS MANY CHARACTERISTICS BOTH INSIDE (THE WAY THAT THE CUPOLAS ARE BUILT IN THE ROOF) AND OUTSIDE (LIKE THE BUTTRESSES THAT KEEP THE WALLS IN PLACE). THOUGH THESE ARE COMMON TO THE FOLKS OF ALL OF EUROPE THEY ARE NOT SO WELL KNOWN TO TURISTS. THE RURAL ARCHITECTURE THAT YOU WILL SEE IN ONE OF OUR TOURS (IE: TO PEDRAZA A CASTLE TOWN), EXEMPLIFIES THE HISTORY THAT IS RELEVANT TO THE TOWN AND HOW IT RELATES TO THE REGION. TO END THERE ARE BALLOON FLIGHTS OVER SEGOVIA AND LA GRANJA. BUT ONCE YOU TAKE YOUR VISITS TO THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS IN LA GRANJA AND SEE THE ONES YOU MIGHT WANT TO SEE ABOVE AND BEYOND THE ONES GIVEN IN THIS DESCRIPTION YOU CAN GET TO VISIT AS MANY TOURS AS YOU LIKE. I HAVE FORGOTTEN TO POINT OUT THAT THE TOUR TO THE NAVACERRADA NATIONAL PARK INCLUDES A TOUR OF THE EL PAULAR MONASTERY AND A MERIENDA AT THE SHERATON 5 STAR HOTEL AND THE VIEWS ARE OF INCREDIBLE BEAUTY, THE PINE TREES ARE NUMBERED IN THE MILLIONS. I CAN NOT REALLY EXPRESS IN WORDS THE BEAUTY AND THE EXTRAVAGANCE OF OLD STONES AS THEY REVEAL THE SECRETS FROM THE PAST AND IT WAS HERE THAT THE MODERN STATE BEGAN AND THAT THE RECONQUEST AS ONE OF THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF EUROPE VS ISLAM AND A SURE FIRE WAY TO BIND THEIR REGIONS INTO A CENTRALIZED GOVERMENT. If you wish to see the photos of attractions in Segovia and the palace and gardens and the attractions of La Granja LOOK AT THE PHOTOS OF OUR OTHER LISTING: TWO BNB SUITES NEAR LA GRANJA PALACE, AND YOU WILL SEE THE MANY ATTRACTIVE MONUMENTS IN SEGOVIA AND LA GRANJA. FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE A MAP AT HAND, THE CITY OF SEGOVIA WHICH IS THE SEGOVIA PROVINCE´S CAPITAL, IS ONLY A 15 MINUTE BUS RIDE FROM LA GRANJA AND IT IS LIKE A SUBURB OF THE CITY OF SEGOVIA THE BUS RIDE COSTS 1 EURO EACH WAY. AND IT TAKES YOU TO THE CENTER OF SEGOVIA. THERE YOU CAN TAKE A SPECIAL TURIST BUS THAT WILL TAKE YOU AROUND TO ALL THE MONUMENTS AND THUS GET A PRELIMINARY ALL AROUND VIEW TO ALL THE SIGHTS AND MONUMENTS.PREVIOUS TO YOUR OWN VISIT TO THESE EXTRORDINARY SIGHTS AND YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR OWN FAVORITE. CHILDREN ARE SPECIALLY TAKEN BY THE ROMAN ACQUEDUCT WHILE BOTH PARENTS AND CHILDREN PREFER THE ALCAZAR WHICH IS THE MEDIEVAL CASTLE ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND LADEN WITH HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE. THOSE MORE INTERESTED IN THE ARTISTIC ENDEAVORS CHOOSE THE GOTHIC CATHEDRAL WITH ITS TAINTED GLASS WINDOWS AND IMPRESSIVE ARCHITECTURAL ACHIEVEMENTS. I HAVE NEVER MET ANYONE WHO HAS VISITED SEGOVIA WHO HAS NOT BEEN IMPRESSED BY THE VARIETY OF THE MONUMENTS AND THE BEAUTY OF LA GRANJA.More
THE AREA OF LA GRANJA AND OUR NEIGHBORHOOD IN PARTICULAR IS OF EXTRORDINARY BEAUTY. YES, INDEED THERE IS A SMALL GARDEN AT THE END OF CALLE MELANCOLIA BAJA THERE IS A NICHE OF OLD HOUSES THAT SORROUND A SMALL GARDEN LIKE A MICROCOSM OF L,A GRANJA.. THE BEAUTY OF THIS NEARBY ABSCONDED LITTLE GARDEN IS QUITE SIMPLY LIKE OUR CASTLE AND ITS GARDEN. IT WAS BUILT BY THE WIFE OF PHILLIP V iSABEL DE FARNESIO.. SHE BUILT IT TO BUILD THE CASTLE TO GIVE THE KING A PLACE AWAY FROM THE COURT OF MADRID. BUT AS IT WAS THE KING WOULD NOT LEAVE LA GRANJA AS THEY HAD MADE SUCH A PERFECT WORLD FOR HIM WHERE EVERYTHING HE LOVED WAS AT HAND.THE KING LIKE MOST KINGS LIKED TO HUNT AND FISH AND THUS THE BEAUTY OF THE COLD COUNTRYSIDE GAVE THE KING PEACE OF MIND. SHE ALSO BROUGHT THE KING THE MOST FAMOUS CASTRAT...
How to get there
THE WAY TO COME TO LA GRANJA BY CAR IS DOUBLE . ON THE ONE HAND YOU CAN COME BY CAR THRU THE NO A-1 FROM MADRID. THEN AT VILLALBA YOU CAN DO TWO THINGS A) DECIDE IF YOU WANT TO GO THRU THE NAVACERRADA PARK WHICH IS DIFFICULT DRIVING BUT BEAUTIFUL AND EVEN IF I DO NOTRECOMMEND YOU GET HERE SO LATE YOU WILL GET OFF THE MOUNTAIN AT THE ENTRANCE OF LA GRANJA. ON THE OTHER HAND IF YOU WANT TO GO FOR A VISIT TO EL ESCORIAL (THE EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD ) A MONASTERY, CHURCH, PALACE AND MORTUARY FUNEREAL PLACE FOR THE BORBON KINGS. THIS CAN BE SEEN ON YOUR WAY HERE AND THE VALLEY OF THE FALLEN A MONASTERY ,CHURCH AND TOUMB OF THE DICTATOR FRANCISCO FRANCO, FOR 45 YRS. IT IS VERY MUCH A FEAT OF ENGEENERING AS IT WAS BUILT INSIDE A GRANITE MOUNTAIN AND A HUGE CROSS IS BUILT ON TOP WITH FOUR GIGAN...
