"Concerto of Aranjuez"

Listening to the "Concerto of Aranjuez" by the Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo, written in 1939 for guitar and orchestra, I remembered the wonderful discovery of this city and its royal palace.
To all those who want to visit, only 55 km south of Madrid, one of the most charming towns in Castile, I recommend Aranjuez with its castle and parks.
I deeply regret not being able to return. I found some pictures of our visit in 2005 while we stayed in Chinchon.
Aranjuez is certainly less known than Toledo, but well worth a detour.

ARANJUEZ LA ROMANTIQUE.

En écoutant le "Concierto de Aranjuez" du compositeur espagnol Joaquin Rodrigo écrit en 1939 pour guitare et orchestre je me suis souvenu de la merveilleuse découverte de cette ville et de son palais royal.
A tous ceux qui veulent visiter, à 55 Km au sud de Madrid, un endroit des plus romantiques je conseille Aranjuez avec son château et parcs.
Je regrette vivement de ne pouvoir y retrourner. J'ai retrouvé des photos de notre visite en 2005 alors que nous logions à Chinchon.
Aranjuez est certes moins connu que Toledo mais vaut vraiment le petit détour.

    "Les Jardins" are absolutely beautiful and the Interior of the Royal Palace exquisite.

    Hi Eddy, this page was quite a surprise. I have never been to Aranjuez and didn't know it had such a nice castle & parks. I've often heard the Concerto of Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo but never knew what it was called or why. I'm listening now on YouTube.
