Why we chose this tourStep back in time into the life of the royal Spanish court with a Madrid Royal Palace Private Tour. Madrid's Palacio Real (Royal Palace) is one of the best-preserved royal residences in all of Europe, a living time capsule of Spain's national heritage. The palace was built in the 18th century on the site of a medieval Moorish Alcazar and served as the home of the Bourbon dynasty until 1931. Today, it is used for state functions and as a museum showing what life was like for the Spanish Royals. This private guided tour of its beautiful tapestries, elegant furniture, and stunning frescoes is a window into the kings of the past and storied Spanish history. This private tour is available year-round, 7 days a week.
The tour begins when your private guide picks you up from your hotel and takes you on a pleasant walk to the Palace, giving you an introduction to Spanish history. Upon your arrival to the palace, you’ll skip the lines and get straight to the incredible interior of this stunning relic of Spanish royal history. You’ll tour the Royal Armoury, the Royal Kitchen, the breathtaking Throne Room, and priceless artworks by some of Spain’s most famous artists including Velazquez and Goya in the Painting Gallery. All the while, your guide will bring history to life, teaching you about Spanish culture and the storied past kings of Spain, and illustrating how Spanish royal life, music, art, and architectural influences compare and contrast with the rest of Europe. After your tour of the palace, you’ll head to the Cathedral of Santa Maria de la Almudena (also known as the Cathedral of Madrid) for a quick peek inside. With information tailored to your specific interests, there will never be a dull moment!
