These are very large and add to the grandeur of the Palace. There are some things in the Ecuries such as the equestrian school and carriage galleries but these have to be open if you want to see inside.

These gardens are gorgeous, however, be ready for lots of walking! You also have the option of renting a golf cart, and enjoying a boat ride in the lagoon. We will definitely try those options next time we visit.
