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.
