It is located in the Guadarrama mountains and was a royal residence, an example of European palatine architecture.

Enrique IV built a hunting pavilion in this area in 1450 and, later, the Catholic Monarchs donated the property to the Hieronymite monks of El Parral. In the 18th century, Felipe V, the first Spanish king from the Bourbon dynasty, built the Royal Palace of San Ildefonso. It is a magnificent example of European palatine architecture. Its gardens and fountains are styled after Versailles, with constant references to legends and mythology, and the rooms are decorated with marble from Carrara, Japanese lacquer and crystal chandeliers. Its name comes from an old farm owned by the Hieronymite monks.
