Description

Meet your guide at the Royal Palace and head inside. As you stroll, hear about the palace's fascinating history and Madrid. Stop to admire pictorial works, tapestries, jewelry, and the stuccoed walls of the palace. The treasures of the royal palace are the room of King Charles III, which includes the apartments of the Illustrated King and one of the most important for the city of Madrid, preserves all the decoration directed by Sabatini, uniform throughout the main floor. The Throne Room and the Chamber called Gasparini constitute the most representative sets of Charles III's taste, attached to the Rococo style in its most exuberant Italian version. Important neoclassical ensembles and pieces of French furniture are owed to Charles IV and to Ferdinand VII, the overwhelming collection of French chandeliers in bronze and crystal. The last decorative renovation to which the current historical state of the decoration responds is due to Alfonso XII in 1879. The apartments of Charles IV and María Luisa extend along the eastern façade, where the successive sovereigns lived until 1931. The Royal Armory, the most important European collection along with that of Vienna, both due to the Habsburgs, was installed next to the Alcázar by Philip II and transferred to the current pavilion in 1891. It is undoubtedly one of the best kept treasures and rooms. most visited. Learn the connection that the mythological elements have with the monarchy before heading to the sumptuous rooms of Carlos III, including a room covered in porcelain. Finish your guided tour in the courtyard near the Royal Armory. If you wish, you can visit the Armory on your own, since is not included with tour guide explanation. IMPORTANT: you avoid the main queue of the palace, but we will access through the group access, it is possible that there will be a queue on busiest days such as Saturdays, Sundays and holidays due to force majeure, this is not the supplier's fault in any case, thank you for understand it.
