A view of the Royal Palace in Madrid

The finest example of 18th-century neoclassical architecture in Madrid, the Royal Palace (Palacio Real) is the official residence of the Spanish monarchy, although it's only used for state ceremonies. The Italianate exterior gives way to lavish décor complete with heavily frescoed walls, gilded moldings and mirrors, the arresting porcelain room and stunningly complex crystal chandeliers.

A variety of exemplary paintings by Spanish and European masters such as Goya, Velasquez and Caravaggio are also on view here.  Don't forget to visit the Royal Armory. Also meriting a visit are the Royal Palace’s extensive and verdant Campo del Moro gardens.
