The Royal Palace is one of the main tourist attractions of the city of Madird and the largest palace in Western Europe. The palace is the official residence of the king of Spain and his family, but is used only at official ceremonies, while for the public is closed.

The building was built by King Philip the 5th on the ruins of Alcazar Fortress.The work started in 1738 and lasted only 17 years until completion in 1755. The building has an area of 135000 square meters and contains 2800 rooms. Inside the palace we visit the Real Pharmacy with a lot of bottles with exotic cures of past ages, the museum "Museo de la Real Armeria" the museum "Museo de la Real Armeria", but the most interesting grand royal apartments are very decorated. Outside the palace the tourists can visit the palace gardens "Campo del Moro" which are also a unique beauty.

Madrid, SpainThere are many nationalities that live together peacefully whether they are Muslims or Christians and this diversity gives the city a unique feel enhanced by its long history. The city dates back from the 9th century when a fortress but the great arteries of the city were set in the 18th century. During the years the city’s face has changed but what remained the same is the same blend of tradition and liveliness.
