It was the summer residence of the Bourbons in the 18th and 19th centuries. In 1720 Phillip V bought the land from the friars of the Parral community. The architect Teodoro Ardemans converted the building into a palace attached to the temple, flanked by four towers with slate capitals.

Palace with squares whose names denote their use: Plaza del Palacio, Plaza del Mercado, Plaza de Canónigos, Plaza de la Cebada, and another, for dreamers, called the Plaza de la Melancolía. It is in the neoclassical style.

The gardens were entrusted to a team from Versailles (France). The Royal Gardens ooze baroque elegance and are important for their rich botany and fountains.
