The Palacio Real de El Pardo was the alternative residence of the kings of Spain till the reign of King Alfonso XII.
Destroyed in the 17th century in a fire along with many of its embellishments including rare Titian paintings, the initial pavilion was transformed to a Palace in the 18th century by a famous architect- Luis de Vega.
In the 20th century, the palace was doubled in size and is exactly what you see today. The whole place is a masterpiece in itself with beautiful celling frescoes by Gaspar Becerra and paintings by Vincenzo Carducci and Cabrera- to name a few.
Take a walk here to see art at its best and witness history merge seamlessly with 21st century Madrid.

The palace was very interesting and our guide was very sweet we were the only two English and they arrange for a special tool for us which I could not thank them enough the tour lasts about 1 hour and in October was not too busy certainly worth a visit and then a light lunch afterwards at one of the many restaurants nearby
Wonderful pieces enclosed this palace that you can visit. Wednesday is free
A beautiful place to spend the day with your love ones.
Unfortunately it was closed when we went there. However the surroundings is really nice with a good little playground for the kids.
I thoroughly enjoyed this visit. The palace is rich in history dating back to the 1400's. Free visits are on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 17:00-20:00. Entrance is €9 on all other days. Consult the webpage for special prices for pensioners, children, large families and people with disabilities.
