Description

In 1731 Philip V, grandson of Louis XIV, wanted to make La Granja into a "little Versailles" at an altitude of 1 192m. In the Palace, a Tapestry Museum exhibits 16C Flemish hangings and a 15C Gothic tapestry. The 145ha gardens were inspired by Versailles: water features provide a focal point, while the Fountain of the Famous throws a jet of water up to 40m. Glass Museum in the Royal Glass Factory.
