Your tour begins in Plaza de Isabel II, where you’ll greet your guide and begin a walking walking tour of the Royal Palace (Palacio Real). Formerly the official residence of the Spanish royal family, the palace is now used for extravagant functions such as ceremonies and official events.
Learn about Spain’s royal history as you visit palace highlights such as the Official Lounges, the Royal Armouries — home to one of the world’s most important collection of shields and weapons — and the Throne Room, where Goya paintings hang in opulent gold frames.
Plus, you’ll tour the landscaped gardens of Campo del Moro before you bid farewell to your guide. Feel free to continue exploring until the palace closes in late evening.
