It is well worth a visit to the Royal Palace, one of the most magnificent palaces in all of Europe. Your self guided tour will be greatly enhanced by an audio guide which although not free, is well worth the money. We were there on...More

It was a great experience the visit to Royal palace of Madrid. With 10 Euros as an entrance fee you get a supreme experience of the greatness of this building . Additionally the royal Armory was impressive .

The palace is gorgeous. The rooms are amazing and there are some furnishings so you have a better idea about how they lived. We really enjoyed our time there.

The opulence of the Palace is not to be missed. Unless you enjoy a long wait (ours was about an hour but the weather was pleasant) buy your tickets prior to your visit.

The palace itself is nothing extraordinary from outside but the inside is remarkable. Defo worth the €10 to see inside the amazing ceilings & artwork draped interiors.

Madrid is incredible! The Royal Palace is just perfect! My advice: try to visit every single place in city center, everything is close and you can walk around and breathe this amazing air!!!

We queued up for the free entry at 4pm. We queued for 40 minutes to be met by a very rude official. We had no ID to show we were EU citizens and he just pointed and said 'Get out, door.' Not impressed - being...More

What a beautiful palace, absolutely huge with the most gorgeous buildings. Good views without entering. Late afternoons it is often free to enter. Save your visit till then.

Worth visiting but I was too late to enter into the palace. Hoping to see it some other time. Recommend visiting.

The Royal Palace is one of the best places in Madrid with one of the best views for sunsets. To me, one of the many magical places in the city.

I didn't go in during the "free evening hours" so I couldn't tell you when or how that would be. You can research on its website for info. I would imagine it has much bigger crowds. The entrance fee was 11 euros, which is... More

There will be crowds when the Museums are free. You can check on-line for current prices and planned closures. This is one that I would spend the money on. There is also a free museum on the outer circle of the Almudena... More
