Flyday Fridays: Aranjuez Palace Garden

Hello, luvlies!

Today´s Flyday Fridays edition is brought to you by the Aranjuez Palace which is about 20 to 25 minutes by train from the capital city of Madrid.

I have visited this palace about five years ago, a must if classic artwork and architecture is your thing. There´s also a free view of the wedding gowns of  the Royal princesses and Queen Letizia as an added bonus to the visit. I didn´t get to see the palace gardens back then and so this time, we went straight to them and skipped the palace tour.

The weather was fiery hot(pun intended) and so I wore my thinnest cotton shirt with a colorful summery print, shorts, sandals and my ever reliable light tote to store my water and sun screen. I forgot to bring a hat and it was so hot, ooops!

The garden beside the palace is called ¨ La Isla¨ (Isle Garden) with lovely evergreen topiaries, a mini forest and with beautiful water fountains in classical Greek style.

It was so hot that I was tempted to take a dip in one of these fountains, hahaha!

This was once the summer palace of the Spanish Royals where they usually take a tour along the their royal boats. There´s a collection of the royal barge in one of the palaces. Nowadays, this place is used for kayaking.

As a plus, there was a mini car show near the garden, old vintage mini cars from the German brand Opel, model 800 made between the 50s to the 80s:
