The official residence of the Spanish royalty is a must-see. However, spotting the king here will be hard, as it is used only for state ceremonies.
When inside, be sure to see the marvellous interior decorations, made using a number of materials, from marble to mahogany. The palace is also home to Royal Armoury of Madrid.
Surrounded by large and peaceful gardens, this palace is said to be one of the most beautiful ones in Europe. Once you are done with exploring the exterior, you can take a stroll through Plaza de Oriente and look at statues of Gothic kings.
The nearest metro station is Ópera.
