The pretty Plaza de la Armeria leads you into this rococo wonder of 2000 rooms of which only 50 are open to the public. Built in the 18th century and modelled loosely after Versailles, the place is no longer the residence of the Royal family though it’s still used for ceremonial purposes. Lavishly decorated, the complex is spread out over 13 hectares. The areas you’re not allowed into are warded off by golden rope. Highlights include:
- The Royal Armoury
- The Royal Pharmacy
- The China Room
- The Throne Room
- The Baroque Plaza de Oriente: famed for the statues of 20 Spanish kings and the monument to Phillip IV.
- The Campo del Moro Gardens: a garden in Romantic and English Style.
- The Neoclassical Sabatini Gardens with mazes and statuary.
- The changing of the guard.
