For someone like me with an interest in Francisco Franco this is a must-see. As is known Franco made El Pardo his home and headquarters and ruled Spain with an iron hand for 36 years (1939-75) mostly from this palace. If you do the tour...More

We were glad we visited this palace when we were in Madrid, but I guess we just expected more after reading about it in preparation for our trip. It could stand some work on it.

El Palacio Real de El Pardo is a must see during your visit to Spain. The works of art, paintings and silver are beautifully rendered and displayed. The palacio is beautifully maintained and worth a visit. Entrance fees apply.

Impressive building, well worth the tour from the sweeping grand staircase to the ornate 23 rooms on display. The Royal Armoury is fascinating and has a wonderful display of parade and tournament aRMOUR.

The palace itself is located in a small town on the outskirts of Madrid, a short, pleasant bus ride from the hustle and bustle of the city. Although the palace is of some architectural interest, and although there are works of art and other objects...More

The palace is very impressive and well worth both your time and your 10$ (we paid 5 with student card from israel) The palace is very pretty and the view from the court is amazing (we were there at sunset).

This is the main palace in Madrid, and were the kins live. The visit is nice and interesting. A good view of the city from the back gardens. Free for EU citizens, students and seniors. Some days they have special passport discounts or free access.

It is not as impressive as the Royal Palace in Madrid, but very interesting from a historical and artistic point of view. El Pardo is only a short ride from Madrid, some 12km, and you can go by bus from the Intercambiador of Moncloa (€1.50)...More

It's my own fault, I should have read the small print. You have to take the guided tour which may mean that you have to wait, in our case 30 minutes. However the tour is very good and takes about an hour. There is a...More
