Royal Palace of Madrid, Spain

Royal Palace Madrid, Spain - by Flick user K_Dafalias

The Royal Palace, or Palacio Real de Madrid in Spanish, is one of the main attractions in Madrid. It is the official residence of the royal family, though this one in particular is only used for state events. The palace was built on the same site where a 10th century fortress and 16th century castle once stood. Tours of the palace are available daily unless the palace is being used for a royal function.
