A beautiful building, sumptuous interior, efficient Front of House and everything one would expect from a 'royal' theatre. Sight lines from the middle of the upper gallery were fine and several screens, strategically placed on each level, provided close ups of the action and subtitles,...More

Did the audio guided tour. During rehearsals, the main stage can only be viewed from behind the glass of the royal box. Bit of a set back. Nevertheless, a building to visit and to revisit.

restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
