An impressive building at the Plaza de Oriente and in front of the famous Almudena Cathedral. It stands on a ridge above the Manzanares River and Campo del Moro Park. The palace is no longer occupied but used for state occasions. it was last used as a royal residence in 1931. It is always interesting to see and know a bit on how the royals have lived and how they received their visitors. Unluckily, again no pictures allowed during the tour in the palace interior. We paid 8 Euros for the entrance fee (Adult price).
