I’m glad some of the other reviewers had luck finding someone that spoke English that could give a meaningful tour. I inquired about an English tour and the lady consulted four other staff members and she came back and said “no english tours”. There weren’t...More

Yes, you do need to check online whether the palace is open the day before you go. You can go to Patriminonial Nacional website which is the gatekeeper of all the royal palaces in Spain, look under "Buy Tickets" and look closely at the calendar...More

Nice palace just outside Madrid. Especially the tapestries are worthwhile, some based on cartoons of Goya (on display in the Prado, 2nd floor). Recent history also dealt with: Franco was the last 'chief of state' who used El Pardo.

The journey out to the palace was straightforward. Metro from Plaza Sol, line 3 to Moncloa then the 601 bus to Pardo. The bus station is underground with the metro station. Just ask at information where to catch the 601. We wandered about a bit...More

This is one of the stops of the hop on/off bus in Madrid. We went in the afternoon so the line was not too long. You may want to order tickets online. It was interesting, not as opulent as Versailles and not as crowded. Lots...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.

Great day out,15km by bus 601 from Moncloa.Lovely riverside walk on the right over the bridge as far as you like as it is a linear walk.great birdwatching and an excellent lunch in a local restaurant after.

First you should check whether the palace is open before you set out because it is often closed. This is because it provides accommodation for Heads of State and their entourages during state visits and of course is not open at these times. Take the...More

Official residence of Spanish royal family but only used for state functions. Large in statue only a small portion is open to the public. Two lines are formed outside, one for those holding tickets one for without. All who enter pass through X-ray machines. If...More

When I first approached this palace, it reminded me of the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria ........I had forgotten to connect the dots between the Spanish Royals and the Habsburgs....a good history lesson ....

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
