What you'll do

Bring your little knights, queens, lords, and dames to a real palace, as the Madrid Royal Palace is the official residence of the Spanish royal family. Enjoy skip-the-line tickets and head straight in with your professional guide, exploring the interior and exterior grounds with exciting stories and activities. As you walk, you'll learn a bit about the city's history, how it became the capital, and why the royal family built the palace in Madrid in the 18th century atop the grounds of a former medieval Moorish Royal Alcázar (an integral part of the country's history).

You and your royal crew will find treasures in the Royal Armoury, the Royal Kitchen, and the Throne Room. You'll find lavish furnishings, historical weaponry and tools, unique cooking gadgets of the past, and all the crowns and jewels you can imagine. Let your creativity run wild as you make your way through magnificent ballrooms and opulent dining halls where kings and queens would throw lavish parties. You can also visit the Painting Gallery and enjoy works by some of Spain's most beloved artists, such as Velazquez and Goya.

But the Royal Palace complex isn't just one building; no trip to this residence is complete without visiting the Cathedral of Madrid. Learn how the construction of its cathedral didn't start until 1879—and why it wasn't completed until 1993. As a result, the interior is relatively modern, bright, and refreshing, with contemporary pops of color. You can also stroll through the Sabatini Gardens next to the palace, where the royal peacocks reside.

Though your skip-the-line ticket reservation will be waiting for you, please note that the price of the tickets is in addition to the tour fee.
