Description

The biggest royal palace in Europe, the Palacio Real de Madrid - as the Madrilenian call it - has a surface of 90,000 m2. You could play a game of hide-and-seek here that lasts for years! And it's not just the size that makes a visit here worthwhile: glorious gardens outside, and beautiful frescoes, furniture and paintings inside. This is a perfect place to visit the world of royalty.

This is the official residence of the Spanish royals, although the family actually live in a more modest palace just outside Madrid (Palacio de la Zarzuela). However, the current king, Felipe VI uses this royal palace for receiving international guests. It's the royal equivalent of getting out the good china.

A real must-see on a visit here is the central staircase with amazing frescoes painted by Giaquinto. After that, visit the Salon de Trono (throne room) and the Salon de Columnas (ceremonial room).

These are the prettiest rooms of the whole palace because of the rich decorations and delicate materials. And of course, this being a palace, there's also plenty of art - Francisco de Goya is well represented.

Make sure you leave time to stroll the beautiful Sabatini Gardens. They honor the Italian architect Francesco Sabatini, who designed the stables that used to be here before the gardens were built.

In the park, in front of the palace, you can rest in the shadow of trees, enjoying your picnic or ice cream.

We had a great time. Although I thought the ticket office would be slightly out of the way it was not bad at all. It set us up to not wait and we were able to enjoy the Palace.

Nice service, however I think that the tourists should be able to communicate with employees of Royal Palace in language different than Spanish.
