Royal Palace of Madrid

Madrid, Spain
4.7 / 44
The Royal Palace of Madrid is a popular tourist attraction that is worth visiting, despite some drawbacks. It may not be the most impressive palace you'll ever see, and it can get quite crowded, even if you arrive early. The café inside the palace is not recommended, as it falls short compared to other similar properties. However, the highlight of the visit is the entry to the armoury, which is included in the ticket price. Inside the palace, you will be captivated by the beautiful art and decoration, with some rooms allowing photography and others not. Many visitors consider this palace to be the most beautiful they have seen in Europe. It is highly recommended to purchase tickets in advance to avoid long queues or disappointment if they get sold out. If you don't have the opportunity to go inside, the grounds of the palace are still worth exploring. The view from the outside is amazing, and the palace itself is known for its stunning ornate rooms, each decorated with a unique theme. The chandeliers are particularly impressive. Taking a guided tour can provide valuable insights into the history and architecture of the palace, but be aware that the audio equipment may not be of the best quality and there will likely be other tours going on at the same time. Alternatively, you can find self-guided tours online and explore at your own pace. While photography is restricted in some areas, it is clearly marked where cameras must be put away. Don't miss the military armour exhibition in one of the wings, included in your ticket, which showcases some very cool horse armour. Overall, visiting the Royal Palace of Madrid is an amazing experience that transports you to a different era. The grandeur and beauty of the architecture will leave you in awe. The attention to detail in the decorations and furnishings is impressive, and each room has its own unique charm. The palace grounds offer stunning views and well-maintained gardens, providing a perfect setting for a leisurely stroll. The staff are friendly and helpful, adding to the enjoyment of your visit. If you have the opportunity to visit Madrid, make sure to include a visit to the Palacio de Real Madrid. Whether you're interested in history, art, or simply want to appreciate the beauty of this majestic palace, it is a must-see attraction that will leave you with unforgettable memories.
