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 BORNED PIGLETS ACCOMPANIED BY APPROPIATE SPANISH WINES THAT ARE GOOD AND DELICIOUS AS WELL AS INEXPENSIVE. THERE ARE ALSO REGIONAL DESSERTS LIKE THE PONCHE SEGOVIANO AND 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 STRNEOUS 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 MEDIEVALHIGH AND LOW, GOTHIC 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 AND YOU WILL SEE THE MANY ATTRACTIVE MONUMENTS IN SEGOVIA AND LA GRANJA.

The Castilla y Leon region

THE REGION OF CASTILLE IS THE MAIN REGION IN ALL OF SPAIN. IT HAS GIVEN THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE THAT MADE IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A NATION WITH LAWS AND WEIGHTS AND MONEY AS WELL AS POLITICAL UNION WHICH WAS DEVELOPED BY THE CATHOLIC QUEEN AND KING OF CASTILLE AND ARAGON. THE QUEEN OF CASTILLE WAS AN INCREDIBLE WOMAN WHO HAD AN ACUMEN FOR POLITICS AND IF TODAY SOME OF HER SO CALLED MISTAKES JUDGED FROM OUR STANDARDS OF TODAY WERE IN FACT VERY IMPORTANT IN THEIR DAY BECAUSE THEY WERE INTENDED AS AN ANSWER TO THE PROBLEMS OF THE KINGDOM ONCE IT HAD BEEN UNIFIED. THE SEARCH FOR RELIGIOUS UNITY AND RACIAL AND UNITY AMONGST THEIR SUBJECTS WAS SUCH A PARAMOUNT IDEA BUT DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE. EVEN BY THE STANDARDS OF TODAY´S POLITICAL CONNUNDRUMS WHERE FIVE CENTURIES BEFORE THE LAWS SHE AND THE KING PROMULGATED DO NOT SEEM SO FAR OFF FROM THE REALITY OF TODAY´S PROBLEMS WITH THE JEWS AND THE ISLAMIC COMMUNITIES FIGHTING OUT BASICALLY THE SAME PROBLEMS AND WITH SPAIN TRYING TO IMPOSE VERY DIFFICULT LAWS THAT DEAL WITH FOREIGNERS INSIDE AND THE ONES OUTSIDEAND HOW MUCH CONFLICT NOT FAR FROM WAR COULD BE STARTED IN SPAIN AND IN WESTERN EUROPE.

I DO NOT WANT TO MENTION THE PROBLEMS OF EASTERN EUROPE BECAUSE WE MUST TRY TO RELAX AND ENJOY AND MAYBE FIND SOLUTIONS TO THESE PROBLEMS. THE NAME OF THE REGION IS CASTILLE DUE TO THE PREVALENCE OF CASTLES THAT WERE ERECTED IN THE REGION. THE RICHNESS OF THE REGION AND THE AMOUNT OF KINGDOMS IN THE SPANISH PENINSULA WERE INDEED MADE FOR WARFARE AND FOR A DIFFICULTY IN BRINGING THE MANUFACTURED GOODS THRU THE PENINSULA AS WELL AS TO EXPORT THE GOODS WHICH WERE TO BE SOLD TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES OUTSIDE OF THE PENINSULA. THE FACT THAT THE NEW WORLD BELONGED AT THAT TIME TO THE TWO MAIN KINGDOMS IN SPAIN MADE IT POSSIBLE TO FINANCE THE MANAGEMENT OF THE EMPIRES BOTH EUROPEAN AND AFRICAN, ASIAN AND THE ONES OF THE NEW WORLD. THE PROBLEMS BROUGHT ON BY THESE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE NOT VERY WELL KNOWN AS THE ENGLISH AND DUTCH WERE SOON TO EMBARK IN ERECTING THEIR OWN EMPIRES BOTH POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC. THUS, IT WOULD BE A VERY EXTRORDINARY EXPERIENCE TO FIND OUT HOW THINGS DEVELOPED AND WHY AND HOW WAS IT THAT SPAIN BECAME THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY IN EUROPE THROUGH THE AUSPICES OF QUEEN ISABELLA . THE REGION, APART FROM THE STORIES AND THE HISTORICAL FACTS CAN HELP TO UNDERSTAND HOW IT ALL DEVELOPED. BUT THE BEAUTY LIES IN THOSE PALACES AND THE CASTLES THAT ABOUND IN THE REGION.WITH THE ALMOST KEPT INTACT OR REHABILITATED IN OTHER PERIODS. THE REHABILITATION OF ALL THE SAVED BUILDINGS WERE DONE IN A NEW WAY TO TRY TO SAVE THEM ARCHITECTURALLY BY GIVING THEM OTHER FUNCTIONS THAT ARE IN CONSONANCE WITH THE MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY FUNCTIONS INSTEAD OF THOSE THAT WERE THEIRS ORIGINALLY.

THE REGION IS MADE UP OF VARIOUS PROVINCES THAT ARE TORN APART EVEN TODAY BY THE NEED TO EXPRESS THEIROWN CHARACTERISTICS AND THEIR SENSE OF BEING A NATION. ONLY THRU MORE UNION CAN THE PROBLEMS BE SOLVED. IT HAS BEEN CENTURIES OF SPANISH STRIFE TO GET IT ALL TOGETHER AND THESE PROBLEMS WERE MAGNIFIED BY THE CIVIL WAR BETWEEN TWO OPPOSING IDEOLOGIES WHICH IS VERY MUCH ALIVE IN TODAY´S POLITICS BUT AS MUCH AS WE CAN DEDUCE THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THESE KIND OF PROBLEMS IN SPAIN. BUT I BEALIVE THAT LISTENING TO THE PAST AND OBSERVING THE STONES THAT TELL US OF TRIUMPHS AND DEFEATS CAN BE A FONT OF SOLUTIONS AND THUS WE DO NOT NEED TO DISPAIR.

THE AREAS OF CASTILLE ARE LEON, ASTURIAS, THE BASQUE COUNTRY, THE OLD KINGDOM OF NAVARRE AND THEN THE UNION BETWEEN SPAIN AND PORTUGAL THRU THE MARRIAGE OF THE EMPEROR CHARLES I OF SPAIN TO A PORTUGUESE PRINCESS WHICH GAVE AN HEIR TO THE EMPIRE OF SPAIN. PHILLIP II AND THIS IDS THE REGION TO LOOK FOR MEDIEVAL CONSTRUCTIONS AND SEE THE TRANSITION FROM ONE TO THE OTHER WAY OF SOLVING PROBLEMS. INDEED IT IS THIS TRANSITION THAT IS SO VIVIDLY SEEN IN THE REGION. EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN HISTORY OR POLITICAL IDEAS OR PROBLEMS THAT PUT INTO PERSPECTIVE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE REGION, YOU CAN SEE BY YOURSELF THE BEAUTY AND THE EXTRORDINARY ARTISTIC ENDEAVOR OF THE HUMANS THAT LIVED IN THE REGION.. THE POLITICS AND THE UNDERSTANDING OF ARTISTIC SECRETS DO NOT HAVE TO BE AN ENDEAVOR FOR THIS TRAVEL . JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY. REVIEWING THE PAST AND LEARNING FROM IT MAYBE A MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE. I AM SURE YOU MIGHT BE DRIVEN TO COME HERE JUST BY THE BEAUTY OF THE PALACES AND FOUNTAINS BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE. PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY , HELPFUL AND ALMOST AMOROUS BUT THEIR BEST OF ALL FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME WHO LIKES TO EAT IS THE GASTRONOMIC OFFERINGS.

San Ildefonso O La Granja

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 LA 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 CASTRATO IN THE WORLD TO LIVE IN LA GRANJA.

THE QUEEN MOVED THE COURT TO LA GRANJA AND SHE HAD TO CONTEND WITH THE LACK OF HOUSING AS LA GRAJA WAS JUST EMPTY LAND FROM WHICH THE TOWN GREW TO SERVE THE PALACE AND FULFILL ITS NEEDS. ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS COULD ONLY BE SOLVED BY AN INCREASE OF THE PERSONNEL IN CHARGE OF SOLVING THE PROBLEMS: CONSTRUCTION OF GREAT HOUSES TO HOUSE THE ARISTOCRATIC MEMBERS OF THE COURT AND THE HOUSES FOR THE AMBASSADORS TO THE COURT AS THE APTS THAT THEY WERE GIVEN HARDLY FILLED THE NEED OF THE ILLUSTRIOUS AMBASSADORS AND THEIR FAMILIES. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS IN THE AREA SUCH AS RESTAURANTS, TAPAS BARS , SPECIAL OFFERINGS IN SO FAR AS ENTERTAINMENT. ONE OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE LOCAL AREA´S BUILDING IS THE PARADOR NACIONAL WHICH IS A FIVE STAR HOTEL THAT HAS AN EXPENSIVE RESTAURANT AND AN INEXPENSIVE YET GLAMOROUS CAFETERIA WHERE YOU CAN HAVE A WONDERFUL AFTERNOON HAVING MERIENDA. AS A HOTEL IT IS ALMOST PROHIBITIVE
