The Royal Palace of Madrid is the most opulent symbol of the power of the Monarchy in Spain. Now a Parliamentary Monarchy, the country still respects its roots which lay heavily on the Royal family. Although now mainly used for state ceremonies, the palace is the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family.
Adorned with 3,418 rooms the palace is the largest royal palace still in use. The palace has been lavishly and tastefully bedecked with magnificent chandeliers, statues, and paintings of the past heads of states and rulers, heavy curtains, and beautifully crafted furniture. The silverware, furniture, artifacts, and porcelain inside the palace all speak of its eminence and primacy. The throne room in the palace is the main highlight of the tour, housing a few of the most unique pieces of furniture and chandeliers. Included in the palace tour are the armory and the changing of the guards. For a glimpse into the rich history of the Royal family of Spain, the Palace is a must-see.
