Palacio Real in Madrid – Keep Calm and Wander

Palacio Real - Alain

The Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio Real) is an epitome of opulence of the Spanish monarchy. It is the official residence of the Royal Family but it’s only used for state ceremonies of visiting dignitaries and other famed VIPs. The facade itself is as impressive as the palace interior. The queue outside is really long in the summer months. However, it’s all worth it when you see all the original artworks of Bernini and Caravaggio. They will blow your mind away – and in my case, I had goosebumps!

Travel Tip: You can avoid the queue if you buy tickets online. There’s a special entrance for those who bought online. It’s fast and most of the time, it’s door is empty. And it’s also helpful if you have an audio guide, instead of going a group tour.

The nearest metro / subway here is the Opera Station.

As you can see, the building itself screams luxury and opulence.
