Special Events

The Royal Palace of Madrid one of the world’s most well preserved palace. The exterior of the palace looks beautiful and magnificent, and it contains more than 2,000 rooms of which only 50 of them are open to visitors. The palace was built in 1764 and is the official residence of the Spanish royal family at the city of Madrid, although now only used for state ceremonies. The royal family now resides at the Palace of Zarzuela in the countryside. Within the Madrid palace are kept 5 Stradivarius handmade violins, and that alone is worth the visit. The outlook of the palace is a blending between the traditional Spanish royal architecture and that of the Baroque style with its ‘square’ designs and the use of white granite on its exterior. When the weather permits, take a stroll to the square, and you may see couples taking wedding photographs or the handsome guards of honor patrolling around the palace.
