Casa del Labrador house in Aranjuez
This house was built during the reign of Charles IV over a modest workers' house within the gardens of Aranjuez Palace, on the banks of the Tagus River. The works were carried out by Juan de Villanueva and by his assistant, Antonio López Aguado, while J.D. Dugourc was in charge of the decoration. The building has a square floor plan with a courtyard. It has three floors and is in the neo-classical style, and the interior features furnishings and decoration from several different periods. The Hall of María Luisa and the Platino room are perhaps the most outstanding.
