The palace rooms were very beautiful but the highlight for us was the armoury room. You could imagine the battles the costumes and their wearers had seen

Easy entrance and interesting place to see. You can spend hours or go by your own speed concentrating into your points of interest. I think this is must to visit if you are in Madrid and ha 2 hours free time.

The architecture of this place, both inside and out, is stunning. You can't visit Madrid without going to this palace. It's so close to other major sites that it's never out of the way!

The palace is an amazing display of beauty, art, and opulence. Having visited several former palaces in Italy, I can say this was without question the most breathtaking of any I have seen. Highly recommend for any visitor to Madrid!
