Palacio Real Royal Palace of Madrid

For a glimpse of the pomp and grandeur of the Spanish monarchy, stroll through the State Rooms of this monumental palace opposite the Royal Opera on the Plaza de Oriente. The rooms and galleries are filled with treasures of historical and artistic merit, but families with children or anyone not needing an in-depth tour should opt for a self-guided one to move at their own pace. Kids will love the Royal Armory, with its astonishing displays of suits of armor, including some for princelings as young as five, and other impressive weaponry. Adjacent to the palace are two gorgeous gardens: the sculpture-filled Sabatini Gardens on the north facade and the Campo de Moro—complete with strolling peacocks—to the west.
