"Palacio Real" Royal Palace Tip by El_Sueco

Royal Palace, Madrid: 127 reviews and 235 photos

  Palacio Real
by El_Sueco

This palace was built to impress, it took 26 years to construct. It was used as a royal palace until 1931, when King Alfons XIII did abdicate.
The King of today, Juan Carlos I, lives in the Zarzuela Palace outside Madrid, but the old palace is used from time to time for official occasions.
If you after your visit in the Royal Palace, go down to the Sabatini gardens (Jardines Sabatini), you will get this view.
