This wonderful town just south of Madrid was declared a World Heritage Site in 2001. The astoundingly beautiful Royal Palace and its gardens is the focal point of the town and is one of the many Spanish Royal Estates.

The town was developed in the sixteenth century by King Philip II.


If you come to Aranjuez with us, the best part is that our VaughanTown and FiftyFifty participants have the pleasure of waking up within walking distance of the palace 

each morning as our wonderful NH Collection Royal Palace Hotel is just opposite this impressive building.

The hotel dates back to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Its captivating décor is a fusion of classical with the latest contemporary luxuries.

Its surrounds, style, and character make it a unique hotel and the range of facilities make for very happy volunteers! 

So if architectural beauty really interests you, this could be the perfect location for your next VaughanTown experience!
