Madrid Spain Palacio Real Madrid

The Palacio Real of Madrid, also called Palacio De Oriente, is the official residence of the King of Spain. The palace was built between 1738 and 1764 and nowadays in it is considered by many ones to be one of the most enchanting European palaces.

This palace was raised on the place of the old Alcazar, which was destroyed by fire on Christmas Eve 1734. After that accident King Feluipe V decided to construct a palace for his Bordon dynasty. And this is the way how this palace was “born”.

His Majesty the King of Spain Juan Carlos and all the royal family do not actually reside this palace, but make use of it for holding official ceremonies. Instead of this palacio they live in the smaller Palacio de la Zarzuala, located on the outskirts of Madrid.

The Palacio Real is owned by the Spanish state and administered by the Patrimonio Nacional agency.

You may find this breathtaking building on Bailen Street, in the western part of downtown Madrid, east of the Manzanaraes River. The palace is, in general, open for public excursions, except of the days when the official ceremonies take place there.

Outside the palace you’ll find two more memorable places of Madrid- the Sabatini gardens and the Campo del Moro (the field of the Moors). To the west of the Palace you will find the Plaza de Oriente created under the orders of Napoleon’s brother. So it is really advisable to visit that very area if you are looking for ones of the greatest historical places of the city of Madrid.
