"Royal Palace" Royal Palace Tip by Mikebb

  Royal Palace

This is a spectacular Palace and do not miss the opportunity to visit. We chose not to visit and preferred to look around the city centre which was nice. When our tour group gathered for the evening outing we learnt from those who took the Palace tour what a beautiful Palace it is.

After a fire in 1734 Felipe V commissioned a palatial replacement which took 17 years to complete.

The palace was used by the royal family until the abdication of Alfonso XIII in 1931.
