Discover Madrid's Palacio Real, one of the largest palaces in Europe, and delve into the history of the Spanish Royal Family on this guided tour.

Madrid Palace Guided Tour

Greet your guide at 12 pm midday in Madrid's Plaza de Isabel II, next to the exit of the Ópera metro station. From there, we'll make our way to the Plaza de Oriente ready to visit the beautiful Palacio Real, which we'll access though a fast-track entrance. 

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. You'll hear fascinating facts about the strict protocol followed in the palace.

After exploring the interior of the Royal Palace, we'll head to the Patio de Armas, home to the impressive Royal Armoury of Madrid, which you can visit at your leisure (not included). Its exhibitions are home to 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. Please bear in mind that the Royal Armoury is closed on occasion for restoration.

At 1:45 pm, the tour will come to an end in one of the most appealing parts of the Palacio Real, 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 and is home to a number of peacocks too!
