Short trip to Segovia and La Granja palace. Segovia is mall and in couple of ours we have seen the old part and the castle. The aqueduct is amazing ..... La Granja was used as summer residence of the kings and constructed by Philip V in 1721 modeled on Versailles. The gardens are huge. Unfortunately big parts are closed due to repairs and the fountains only work couple of hours in the afternoons but only Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. I think there is too much bronze sculpture on the fountains and the color its not so nice. Al the fountains need repairs since they are in bad shape.
