Description

Explore the Spanish royal family's official home – all 135,000 square meters of it! Your guide will take you through the majestic throne room, up the marble staircases, navigate the portrait gallery, and show you the fearsome weaponry in the armories. You'll get all the info and context you need to understand this monster residence.

The Spanish monarch's fantastically frescoed palace is officially the largest royal residence in Europe, which means it's very, very big indeed.

And with over 3,000 stunning rooms, you really need an expert guide to get the best out of your visit. Luckily, you'll get just that, skipping the winding queues and getting straight into the palatial action for an all-access tour of the estate.

The Painting Gallery is one of the countless highlights, with works by Caravaggio, Goya, and Sorolla, and the Royal Pharmacy is an extra nosy treat – you can see the real prescriptions given to the kings and queens over the years!

Cap it off with unbeatable views of the surrounding city, and you have a royal affair to remember!
