The Cultural Landscape of Aranjuez has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Aranjuez Royal Palace was originally planned to have two gardens adjoining the building: one facing north, the Queen's Garden, and the other facing south, the King's Garden. Only this latter garden was actually built, during the reign of Philip II. It was designed as a small "secret garden" intended to be viewed from the windows of the king's room on the first floor, or from the gallery on the ground floor, which was later walled up. The garden comprises four central beds, divided to create another two compartments on each side. They are formed by various box hedge designs, which are adaptations of classic Renaissance models created during restoration works in the 1980s. Between the box hedgerows, different plants provide seasonal colour, including fuchsias and miniature roses, as well as small potted orange trees, which are kept in greenhouses in the La Isla Garden during the winter.
