Abstract

The current work has the royal site of the Granja de San Ildefonso as object research, near to the city of Segovia in Spain. In particular, this research in-vestigates the historical evolution of the royal site to compare it with the Jardines du château de Versailles and the Château de Marly with an archival approach. The royal site of the Granja de San Ildefonso was a farmhouse of Jeronimo’s monks and only later it was associated to Anjou’s Duke, Felipe V. The Duke who later became King of Spain, chosed this place to build his palace with a royal garden based on the model of French gardens with a ge-ometric grid. Nevertheless, the orography of this place forced architects to modify the typical model of French garden. In the beginning, this paper in-vestigates the structure of the park and its historical evolution through the comparisons between the historical cartography (1916) and the current state. Later, the structure of the royal site of the Granja de San Ildefonso was com-pared to that of the royal sites of Versailles and of Marly. The methodologies used allowed us to understand the morphological differences over the centu-ries and identify what the Granja de San Ildefonso and the typical French gardens differ.
