What To Expect
Built in the ornate Italianate baroque style, the Royal Palace is one of Madrid’s top sites, and this tour of the building covers just a fraction of the thousands of rooms. As you walk with the guide, learn about the building’s architecture and remarkable treasures, from Goya paintings to Stradivarius violins, suits of armor, and royal crown collection.
The Royal Palace of Madrid has a royal pharmacy, a grand throne room, and a royal library, as well as special apartments for members of the royal family. Your guide also describes the modern-day royal events that still take place in the palace, from dinner parties to royal audiences. The tour concludes on the grounds of the palace, close to restaurants, public transit, and top attractions in central Madrid.
