Step by Step

Enjoy a guided tour of approximately 2 hours and a half, visiting the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral. Discover one of the largest palaces in Europe and the religious temple with the most exclusive architecture.

Access both buildings directly without waiting in long queues. A local guide will accompany you on the tour and tell you stories and anecdotes about the kings who lived in the Royal Palace such as Carlos III, Alfonso XIII and their families.

You will also discover important facts such as the reason for the name of the Almudena Cathedral, a clue is that it is due to the apparition of a virgin.

You won't stop taking pictures on the luxurious tour of the Royal Palace, the incredible rooms of King Carlos III, the ostentatious Gala Dining Room, the renowned Throne Room, the Patio de Armas of the Royal Palace and other areas of interest. It is also known as the palace with the most rooms in Western Europe.

Be amazed by the details of the architecture of the Almudena Cathedral, it is very different from other cathedrals in Madrid and Spain, with a Neoclassical style on the outside, Neo-Gothic on the inside and Neo-Romanesque in the crypt.

The activity includes stops in areas of interest such as Puerta del Sol, Calle del Arenal and Plaza de Isabel II, known as the opera square.

    What I liked the most is that the whole ride felt very calm. We were not under pressure but not going super slow either. Highly recommended.

    It is the 2nd time I come to the palace, the first time I went with an audio guide and this time accompanied. There is no comparison with everything I learned this time. Definitely worth the money.
