PALACIO REAL

IMG_5377this was one of the most impressive things we visited in europe! it deserves its own post!

the Palacio Real {royal palace} does not house the spanish monarchs. instead, it’s a museum, open to the public and only holds special events with world leaders! and it’s amazing! it’s not mentioned in the Madrid museums route, which is a total mistake! this place deserves your time!

inside you can see the palace as it was during all the Carlos’ reign. there is so much history, the paintings are incredible, the royal dinning room: extremely impressive! and imagine this: the majority of the gold, jewels, and antiques were stolen when Napoleon ransacked the place!

the place s beautiful inside and outside. across the street is the gorgeous cathedral and in the back, an amazing garden! it was a fantastic trip! it’s a shame we don’t have any pictures from the museum part, since they would not allow!
