Come with Smart Insiders as we see Madrid’s Royal Palace. This is the city’s largest building and is the largest royal palace in Western Europe. Learn about history and see valuable art on a free tour of the Palace.
In the 14th century, the Royal Palace was home to the royal family. It was built on the site of the old Alcázar and was a magnificent attraction. However, the Moorish castle was destroyed by fire in 1734, causing the royal family to move to a different location. The fire also lead to the rebuilding of the palace which took seventeen years.
Today, the Palace is used for ceremonial and public events. Though, if the right flag of the palace is up, a member of the royal family is inside. From outside, the Palace looks huge – and it is! There are over 3,000 rooms within the castle, making it impossible to see every room in one visit.
We are so excited to help you explore Madrid’s Royal Palace. It is a must-see place for all! With so many rooms to see, you won’t ever be bored.
