Discover the grandiose Royal Palace of Madrid with special early access and a 1.5-hour guided tour. For a glimpse of the palace at its most spectacular, you’ll arrive before the doors open to the public, then learn the secrets of the enormous palace, whose 2,800 rooms overflow with masterpiece…

The Royal Palace in Madrid is actually used (but not owned) by the king of Spain for state ceremonial activities. The palace was built on the site of a former alcazar that burned down in 1734. It took 26 years to complete! A visitor to the palace today gets to see 50 of its 3400 rooms – but even this small portion is well worth the visit, with many fascinating artifacts and artworks. Not to mention the ornate palace itself!

The palace is one of the most beautiful and interesting attractions in Spain. Marvel at how people could have lived so lavishly and in such style! You’ll see the Royal crown and scepter, and can even visit the impressive armory.

The entrance is on the south end of the palace. Unless there are lines, you might not notice it immediately – but you’re sure to find it.

After paying entrance fees, one enters the parade ground. The entrance to the palace interior is through the doors slightly left of the photo’s center.

Hall of Columns: The first room encountered on ascending the amazing staircase.

    We had a great tour of the beautiful Spanish Royal Palace. I would highly recommend it. 1.5 hours is plenty of time to get the details, but you are allowed to stay inside longer if you need more time after the tour is complete.

    Not bad but guide a little rude Skip the line was worth it but Guide was not so welcoming held up those of us who where on time or early for those who where late and it was hot. While informative she needs a little more people skills, better disposition and hospatility. Maybe just a bad day

    We practically had the palace to ourselves! The headsets didn’t work well, but I didn’t care; I didn’t bother to use mine because I didn’t need them as we practically had the palace to ourselves! Beatrice was wonderful – well informed, funny, able to deal with all sorts of…personalities, and moved us along at the perfect pace so we were able to see an amazing amount of this breathtaking former royal residence. She also pointed out areas of the palace where you can continue to tour on your own should you like to stay after the guided part is done. What more can you ask? Well done!

    Our tour guide was exceptional! I didn’t enjoy my interactions with the office but our guide couldn’t have been better. She had a tough job with the speaker equipment that didn’t work but she made the best out of it. She made such an effort to include the kids in what she was saying. Best tour guide we have had!
