Three Spain posts in one week? Yes indeed but why the heck not! It seems fitting that I am on currently away from home when I am sharing all of these great things – truly living that jet set travel life, wouldn’t you say?
Pro tip: If you are going to visit the Royal Palace in Madrid definitely buy tickets ahead of time because unlike most museums and attractions it is closed at periodic times for state functions and even when it is open the line to get day-of tickets is often more than an hour!
As mentioned in a few of posts one of my least favorite things about museums, cathedrals, and churches are the inability to take photos 🙁 the completely understand sacred spaces and not wantring to damage artwork but I want to document my visit for my own memories. The Royal Palace of Madrid is one of these places and I’m happy at least I was allowing to take photos in the courtyards and enterance halls before being directed to put my camera away. Take a look:
And when you are leaving make sure to check out the Catedral de la Almudena which is just across the courtyard and has so many amazing chapels!
Visiting the Royal Palace of Madrid was truly an experience even though I wasn’t allowed to show you much of the interior. Even so I recommend you visit the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family in the heart of Madrid. No one lives here any longer but it is used for state ceremonies and well worth a visit!
