The Royal Palace: Entry fee: €8.00 without guide; €10.00 with guide. Otherwise known in Spanish as the Palacio Real, the Royal Palace was built during the 18th and 19th centuries, and is a monumental building.
The Royal Palace is maybe the top tourist attraction of Madrid. That is why, you would prefer to get awarded of its interests… The royal Palace, indeed, is the official residence for the Royal family, but today, it is only used for state ceremonies. The rest of the time, it is open to the public: the King Juan Carlo and the Royal Family do not live there, they prefer living in a more modest Palace: “Palacio de la Zarzuela” (on the outside of Madrid). The palace is located on “Calle de Bailén” (Street), in the West of the down-town. It is easily accessible from the Ópera metro station. (Nicolas G)
