Tour Itinerary

In 1561 the king Philip II decided to move the capital from Toledo to Madrid. Since then, except during period from 1601 to 1606, Madrid has been the capital of Spain and the official site of the Spanish government. That’s the reason why Madrid has been chosen to build a great number of buildings used as Royal Residence, such as The Royal Palace in Oriente square and The Royal Palace in Aranjuez.

The Royal Palace was built in the XVIII century upon the ancient Baroque Italian style fortress of the Hapsburg. It is one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces in Europe and a symbol of the permanence and consolidation of Madrid as the capital of the Kingdom. The Palace was the official residence of the Spanish Monarchy from 1765 to 1931. To date, the most stunning receptions of the Spanish Crown are celebrated there: audiences, dinner parties, signature of agreements and the traditional ceremony of presentation in which foreign ambassadors present Credential Letters to His Majesty the King.

We will visit the Armory Square (exterior of the palace), the Grand Staircase, the King Charles III’s Apartments, the Queen’s Apartments, the Banqueting Hall, the Royal Chapel and the Throne Room and the Crown Room. After the guided tour, you may visit on your own the Royal Armory and enjoy the views from the viewpoint of the Armory Square.

Royal Site of the Crown of Spain 46 km south of Madrid, situated in a fertile valley on the banks of the River Tagus (Tajo), known for its Royal Palace, its numerous gardens and for serving as inspiration to the composer Joaquin Rodrigo to create the Concert of Aranjuez.
UNESCO declared Aranjuez Cultural Landscape a World Heritage Site in 2001.

The Royal Palace, where we will appreciate the variety of decorative styles, especially the China Chamber Porcelain and the Throne Room of Elizabeth II; The Prince's Gardens, the Parterre and the Island which are characterized by great variety of vegetation and tree species.

The Museum of Royal Feluccas (a type of long and narrow light boats, used in ports and rivers) was built in 1963 and exhibits the boats used by the royal family to navigate the Tagus River.
These include a gondola belonging to Philip V, although the ship actually dates to the reign of Charles II; and the boats of Charles IV, Ferdinand VII and Elizabeth II.
