Madrid Palace Guided Tour
Greet your guide in the historic Plaza de Oriente, right in front of the beautiful Palacio Real, and make your way to this iconic landmark.
Skip the long lines and step straight into the largest Royal Palace in Western Europe, which is double the size of the Buckingham Palace and the famous Versailles Palace.
Over an hour and a half, you'll stroll through the Palace’s grandiose rooms and halls, including the Gasparini Hall, the Porcelain Room, and the majestic Throne Room or Mirror Room. Admire the impressive Royal Armoury of Madrid, with the personal arms, armour and shields of the Kings of Spain. It is considered the most important collection in Europe, along with the Armoury collection in Vienna.
You’ll finalize the visit in one of the most appealing parts of the Palacio Real, in the Campo del Moro, a fantastic English-style park located beneath the Palace. Not only is this garden enchanting, but it offers stunning views of the Royal Palace.
