    The Palacio Real de Madrid is the third largest palace in Europe after Versailles and Vienna's Meiquan Palace. Built in 1738 by Sachetti and completed in 1764, it is one of the most complete and exquisite palaces in the world. Madrid Palace was built on the hills on the left bank of the Mansales River in the 18th century under the orders of Felipe V, a former Arab castle. It is a representative cultural relic of the Bormong Dynasty. Its magnificence is one of the best in European palaces. Sabatini completed the southeastern palace and stairs. The palace is square with a large courtyard in the middle. From the Prince's Gate on the East side, you can get to the Central Courtyard. Sabatini's Royal Garden and Campo del Moro are also fascinating, and the front of the palace is extremely magnificent. The emperors who lived here in the past dynasties would arrange the palace according to their personal preferences, and also make the palace full of their unique personal style and the imprint of the times. There are 2,800 rooms in the palace, but only 50 of them are open to visitors. The famous ones are Sal &n de Alabarderos, Column, Mirror Hall (Sal &n de Los Espejos) and Cuarto del Rey Carlos III. In the palace, you can also see the paintings of Vel &zquez, Goya, Rubens and other masters. The palace is square in appearance, similar to the Louvre in France; the interior decoration is Italian style, magnificent. There are innumerable gold and silver utensils and paintings, porcelain, tapestries and other royal articles in the palace. Opposite the palace is the Spanish Square. In the center stands the monument of Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote, beside which there is the Hall 183; beside the statue of Quixote riding a horse and his servant Sancho, there is also the Royal armory, which has some important collections in the world. It displays some armor belonging to the King of Spain and other members of the royal family before the 13th century.

    The Madrid Palace and Mayor Square are undoubtedly the most elegant places in Madrid. They are surrounded by a series of ancient corridor-like buildings. Arches connect the streets of the city. A peacock stands smartly on the wall. There are many valuable paintings and crafts in the palace. Unfortunately, no photographs can be taken. But it is interesting to hear the story between the emperor and the princess. The most famous one is the big dining table, where foreign heads of state are served. The portraits of celebrities and porcelain are extraordinary. Especially one room has strong Chinese elements and the walls are full of dragon and Phoenix patterns.

    Madrid Palace is the residence of Spanish Royal palace, the appearance of which is mainly white, everywhere reflects low-key luxury. The interior decoration is very luxurious, especially the paintings on the dome, which are said to have come from Monet and other famous artists. The sculptures in the temple are also very exquisite, each can be called perfect sculpture works of art. This is the scenic spot that Madrid will visit anyway. It will surely make your trip worthwhile.

    Madrid Palace, built in 1738, took 26 years to complete. It is one of the most complete and exquisite palaces in the world. The third largest building in Europe is also the most exquisite one in Madrid. Madrid Palace, also known as the "Oriental Palace", is no longer the place where the royal family lives, but it is still used to receive state guests and other state activities, and is open to the public in the absence of formal activities. The grandeur of the palace's exterior has been awe-inspiring, and its interior is even more magnificent. It's only a pity that it can't be photographed and displayed.

    Buying tickets online can save the pain of queuing and go directly to visit. The palace is magnificent and beautiful, and the scenery around it is also very beautiful! It happened that a couple of couples were taking wedding photos. Foreigners were pursuing nature and were walking all the way without poses. Visits to the palace were restricted from taking pictures. I can only take some pictures. It's very attractive! If you come to Madrid for a tour, the palace is worth visiting. There is also the Uberna Stadium, which is highly recommended. The weather was not so good on the day I went, and if it cleared up, the pictures would be better ~~

    Really feel what a luxurious lifestyle, every room is brilliant, there are royal or celebrity portraits on the wall, but also from the hands of famous painters, some exquisite decorations are from all over the world. Among them are vases from China and signing tables of the Sphinx from Egypt, which are used when signing international documents. The color and style of each room are different, and the rooms with three meals are different. The banquet halls seen on TV sometimes entertain dignitaries of various countries.
