THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS RESIDENTIAL VERY SAFE AS THE CIVIL GUARD WORKS AND LIVE IN THE BUIDING IN FRONT AND THE GARDENS COULD BE SAID TO BE THE BACKYARD OF THE APT. AND THERE ARE PLACES NEARBY TO PRACTICE HORSERIDING, THERE IS A NEARBY POOL THAT HAS BEEN NEWLY BUILT AND IT IS HEATED IN WINTER. ALSO THERE IS THE CRYSTAL FACTORY ESTABLISHED BY THE QUEEN TO SAVE MONIES FROM TAXES AND CUSTOMS., THE SITE IS COMPLEMENTED BY THE ROYAL TAPESTRIES FACTORY IN MADRID FOR THE SAME REASONS. THERE ARE ONLY A FEW STEPS TO THE PALACE AND THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE BUT IT WILL BE INVALUABLE TO VISIT THE GARDENS SPECIALLY FOR THE ONES THAT ARE IN LOVE, SEGOVIA CAN BE REACHED BY A BUS EVERY HALF HOUR AND THERE PARTICIPATE FROM THE ACQUEDUCT BUILT BY THE ROMANS THROUGH HISTORY FOLLOWING THE DECAYING STONES THROUGH MEDIEVAL SPAIN TO THE ART OF VICENTE ESTEBAN GLORY OF SPAIN TO THE WORLD AND WALK BY THE STREETS THAT SAW ISABEL I ON THE WAY TO THE ALCAZAR TO BE CROWNED QUEEN AND BE IN THE SAME BUILDING SHE DEVELOPED THE CENTRAL STATE IDEA AND ITS BASIS. THE ELEGANT GOTHIC CATHEDRAL IS AMONGST THE FEW ELEGANT ONES THAT DUE TO CERTAIN ARCHITECTURAL DEVISE LIKE CIRCULAR BUTTRESSES AND THE SEPARATE BELLFRY THUS MAKE IT UNIQUE AS THE BELLFRY WAS USUALLY BUILT ON THE TWO OR ONE TOWER IN THE FRONT PART OF BUILDING. A FEW BLOCKS AWAY THERE ARE RESTAURANTS, CAFE´S OFFERING TAPAS AND DRINKING WHILE THE CHURCH IS WHERE THE RELIGIOUSLY INCLINED INDIVIDUALS WENT TO.AND THIS IS VERY SIMILAR TODAY. CONVERTED JEWS HAD THEIR OWN ENTRANCE TO THE CATHEDRAL. THE ALCAZAR, THE MOST HISTORICAL OF ALL MEDIEVAL CASTLES IN SPAIN IS NOT ONLY BEAUTIFUL BUT IT´S HISTORY FILLS PAGES OF BOOKS. THE CITY OF SEGOVIA IS FULL OF MEDIEVAL CHURCHES THAT GIVE THE CITY A CERTAIN CHARACTER AND BEAUTY. THERE ARE MANY SQUARES FULL OF PRIVATE MEDIEVAL RESIDENCES THAT WILL AMAZE YOU FOR IT´S LONGEVITY AND FOR THE ARCHITECTURE WHICH AFFORD THE HOMMAGE TOWERS THAT ALL SUCH NOBILITY RESIDENCES HAD. THE SKYLIGHT OF SEGOVIA IS FULL OF THEM. THERE ARE ALSO INCREDIBLE GARDENS SOME PRIVATE BUT WHICH CAN BE VISITED AND SOME PUBLIC LIKE LA FUENCISLA . THERE ARE MANY STYLES OF CHURCHES THAT WERE BUILT AFTER THE CRUSADES SUCH AS AN HEXAGONAL CHURCH WHICH WAS BUILT BY THE TEMPLARS WHEN THEY RETURNED FROM THE HOLY LAND. THERE ARE CISTERCIAN STYLE CHURCHES OF WHICH EL PARRAL IN THE FUNCISLA IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WITH A MONASTERY NEXT TO IT. IT IS ALSO TIED TO LA GRANJA BUT MORE ON THIS LATER. FOR THE RELIGIOUSLY INCLINED THERE IS THE SAN JUAN DE LA CRUZ CHURCH,,A POET, AND SINGULAR FOUNDER OF THE CATHOLIC COUNTERREFORM,. INTIMATE FRIEND OF SANTA TERESA DE AVILA, ALSO A POETESS AND FELLOW COUNTERREFORMER AND THEOLOGIAN DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH AND HIS WHOS UNCORRUPT BODY LIES IN SPLENDOR,IN A GOLD AND SILVER SARCOPHAGOUS, WHICH IS CONTRADICTORY TO HIS LOVE OF SIMPLICITY AND VOTES OF POVERTY. HOWEVER, THIS TOOK PLACE IN THE SPANISH RENAISSIANCE AND YOU CAN IMAGINE THE REST.... FURTHERMORE, FROM SEGOVIA YOU CAN VISIT EASILY SEGOVIA´S .ENVIRONS: IT´S TOWNS OF ARTISTIC INTERESTS SUCH AS VILLACASTIN , AVILA AND SALAMANCA. ALL CAN BE EASILY VISITED FROM LA GRANJA. BUT THE BEST IS THAT THE PALACE AND GARDENS OF LA GRANJA ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL IN SPAIN FOR IT´S ELEGANCE AND IT´S EXTRORDINARY SKYLINE THAT SEEMS LIKE IF IT WAS A FAIRIE STORYBOOK PICTURE FOR CHILDREN. NOTHING BEATS SEEING THE PALACE FROM AFAR, WHEN YOU RETURN FROM SEGOVIA , NESTLED AMONG TREES. THE CUPOLA OF THE COLEGIATA, THE CHURCH WHICH IS PART OF THE PALACE COMPLEX. CAN BE SEEN FIRST AND THEN THE REST OF THE PALACE COMPLEX. THE VIEW WILL REMAIN IN YOUR MIND FOREVER AND RETURN

YOU TO A STORTBOOK TALE OF PRINCESSES AND ROYALTY LIKE WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD. IF YOU BROUGHT YOUR CHILDREN THEY WILL DREAM OF SUCH FAIRY TALES. THE THREE BUILDINGS BUILT BY THE ROYAL FAMILY, WHICH GREET YOU AS YOU ENTER THE GATES OF LA GRANJA. THEY ARE NOW EXQUISITELY REFURBISHED AND USED FOR MODERN ACTIVITIES.. THEY ARE THE OTHER THREE BIGGEST BUILDINGS IN LA GRANJA WHICH TOGETHER WITH THE PALACE COMPLEX GIVE LA GRANJA ITS EXQUISITELY ELEGANT AND BEAUTIFUL CHARACTER BOTH IN SUMMER AND WINTER. OF COURSE THE VERY BEST IS SPRING AND FALL DUE TO THE TREES VERDANTLY EXPLODING AND THE SYLVESTER FLOWERS ALL OVER THE ROADS AND THE MANICURED GARDENS DECORATED WITH FLOWER PLANTS.

THE REASON THE ROYAL FAMILY BUILT AND MOVED TO LA GRANJA WAS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE KING SUFFERED FROM MELANCHOLIA WHICH IS WHAT DEPRESSION WAS KNOWN AS, AT THE TIME. THE WHOLE COURT HAD TO MOVE TO LA GRANJA AS THE COURT WAS WHERE THE KING RESIDED AND HE WOULD NOT RETURN TO MADRID. SO, THE COURT AND THE AMBASSADORS TO THE COURT HAD TO MOVE WHERE THE KING WAS. THIS IS THE REASON WHY THERE ARE TWO ANNEXED ADDITIONS TO THE PALACE ON EACH SIDE OF THE PALACE FOR THE COURT'S DIGNITARIES AND THE AMBASSADORS TO LIVE UNTIL THEIR RESIDENCES WERE BUILT. THIS EVENTUALLY TURNED INTO THE BUILDING OF MANSIONS AND BEAUTIFUL RESIDENCES BEING BUILT IN LA GRANJA.

.

GETTING BACK TO THE THREE OTHER BUILDINGS WHICH THE QUEEN HAD BUILT AWAY FROM THE PALACE COMPLEX BUT CLOSE TO IT, THEY ARE TODAY A CONVENTION CENTER, WHICH WAS THE HOUSING OF THE ROYAL GUARDS THAT PROTECTED THE ROYAL FAMILY. THE OTHER WAS USED TO HOUSE THE HORSES AND CARRIAGES OF THE ROYAL FAMILY WITHOUT WHICH THE ROYALS COULD NOT DISPLACE THEMSELVES IN THE REGION OR GO TO MADRID WHEN THE NEED ARISED.. THE THIRD AND MOST EXTRORDINARY BUILDING IS ON THE STREET THAT TURNS LEFT AS YOU ENTER LA GRANJA AND IT WAS BUILT TO HOUSE THE SERVANTS AND CARETAKERS OF THE LARGE ROYAL FAMILY'S CHILDREN. IT IS NOW A PARADOR INAGURATED RECENTLY BY THE PREVIOUS KING, DON JUAN CARLOS I .IT'S BEAUTY AND IT'S LARGENESS DEFIES DESCRIPTION HAVING BEEN BUILT FOR SERVANTS. THE THREE WERE USED FOR THE NEEDS WITHOUT WHICH THE ROYALS COULD NOT LIVE. UPON THESE STRUCTURES THE TOWN GREW AND PROSPERED.

Location description from owner

The Castile and Leon region

La Granja de San Ildefonso

THE AREA OF OUR ESTABLISHMENT IS AS CLOSE TO THE PALACE COMPLEX AS YOU COULD POSSIBLY BE. THERE IS THE FRONT GARDEN THAT GREETS ONE AS ONE GOES IN THROUGH THE IRON GATES HELD BY GRANITE COLUMMS. THESE MEET THE TWO OTHER FABULOUSLY REFURBISHED EDIFICES THAT ARE PERFECT EXAMPLES OF 18TH CENTURY ARCHITECTURE WITH HIGH WIND SIGNAL WHERE STORKS BUILD THEIR NESTS. THE TWO BUIÑDINGS ARE IDENTICAL AND THE COLORS ARE DIFFERENT. THE ONE AT THE LEFT IS TURQUOISE AND WHITE WHICH USED TO HOUSE THE ROYAL GUARD AND NOW IS A CONVENTION CENTER. THE OTHER ONE IN LIGHT OCRE WAS THE HOUSING FOR THE HORSES AND THE CARRIAGES OF THE ROYAL FAMILY AND NOW ARE APARTMENTS FOR THE HOLIDAY OR PERMANENT INDIVIDUALS WHO RENT THEM FROM THE GOVERMENT. THESE ARE JOINED BY THE LARGEST BUILDING IN LA GRANJA WAS BUILT TO HOUSE THE SERVANTS THAT TOOK CARE OF THE CHILDREN OF THE ROYAL FAMILY. NOW IT IS THE PARADOR NACIONAL OF LA GRANJA. A HOTEL OF 5 STARS THAT IS VERY PRICEY AND IT IS VRY BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT . IT AFFORDS A SWIMMING POOL . THEREFORE ALL THREE BUILDINGS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND SOMEHOW NEWLY REFURBISHED.
