We went to the palace at sunday morning. The line for tickets was long. I purchse tickets by the intetnet.There is not any line for ticket holders and they need only the code you get by email. The palace audio guided tour is very good....More

Entry was a bit chaotic with long line for audio guide, but well worth it. Nice overview of Spanish history and, of course, some spectacular rooms.

We arrived in Madrid late and ran to get into the Palacio Real before the last entrance time of 5:00 pm. We were given free admission. The rooms are so elaborate, especially the throne room.

The palace is interesting but not that big so you can see this in around 90 minutes not counting the wait for tickets. They have a nice shop too.

For someone like me with an interest in Francisco Franco this is a must-see. As is known Franco made El Pardo his home and headquarters and ruled Spain with an iron hand for 36 years (1939-75) mostly from this palace. If you do the tour...More

We were glad we visited this palace when we were in Madrid, but I guess we just expected more after reading about it in preparation for our trip. It could stand some work on it.

Hola, veo que para llegar en transporte público hay que tomar autobus, pero voy con mi madre y un bebé y podría ser incómodo, ¿sabe alguien cuánto me cobraría un taxi? Y para el regreso, ¿hay dónde coger taxi? Y en el peor caso, ¿el autobus de regreso se coge cerca del palacio? Gracias.
