Aranjuez is close to Ocana, where you’ll find an air field used for various activities including skydiving. I went there to train. Many of the skydivers using that dropzone and the school there (FreeFall University) stay in Aranjuez, generally in the hotel Infantes. There’s a great bar just a couple blocks away called Cheers (wherever you go, you’ll always find a “Cheers”), also frequented by the skydiving group.
While you’re there be sure to have a good wonder around the city. The undercover market is worth a look, as are the palace buildings and the gardens. There are often events in the city, while I was there we went along to a big music festival in the plaza. We also passed an open air stage near the market so there’s plenty of free entertainment.
There are also plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants to check out, and good tapas.over 6 years ago
