The Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral are two iconic landmarks of Madrid. Discover both monuments with this fantastic tour and learn about the history of Spain.
Royal Palace and Almudena Cathedral Tour
At 10:30 am we will meet up at the Almudena Cathedral, specifically in front of the statue of John Paul II. First, we will enter this magnificent temple that was more than 110 years in the making. During that time its architectural style changed up to three times. We will discover its curiosities and the controversy surrounding its history.
Right in front of the Almudena Cathedral is one of the most important buildings in the Spanish capital. The Royal Palace of Madrid is one of the largest in Europe, with a total of 3478 rooms, even bigger than Versailles and Buckingham!
We will step inside the palace and explore it for an hour and a half. We will see the main rooms of this baroque wonder, among which are the Throne Room with Tiepolo's frescoes, the main staircase, and the Royal Armoury.
We will finish the guided tour of these two monuments at 1:30 pm.
