The Royal Palace of Madrid

Pay a visit to the magnificent Royal Palace of Madrid, which is arguably one of the city’s most iconic monuments. See the largest palace in Western Europe and it’s magnificent 18th century stone design. The palace is surprisingly not the official residence of the King of Spain; it’s instead used for state ceremonies, official business and grand banquets.

The palace is open to the public on non-ceremonial days where you can take a guided tour inside the state rooms to view the lavish décor and displayed art in the form of hand woven tapestries, paintings and gold painted sculptures.
