The farm-to-table gastronomic experience of Aranjuez is one of the best reasons to visit to the region. This is based on the agricultural tradition that Aranjuez has had since its beginnings. From the start, it was a place where the Kings found an exceptional ground for botanical and agricultural experimentation throughout the centuries.
This foundation has led to the cultivation of indigenous species of fruits and vegetables that can be tasted in the restaurants of Aranjuez. Some of the most popular produce are the famous strawberries and asparagus, as well as other seasonal fruits and vegetables like cabbage, artichokes, aubergines and tomatoes.
At the restaurants around the World Heritage site, you’ll be able to enjoy the meals prepared by expert chefs using the food that has been harvested just metres away, on the edge of town. Proximity makes these flavours unique, and hopefully you’ll be able to taste the nuances as the products pass from the field to the table on the same day.
