The entrance was quick although there was a lack of information about where we would meet and where to enter. What I didn't like was that the guide was not very understandable.

Me ha gustado mucho la visita, destacar que la visita guiada que va incluida en la entrada es solo para cocinas, una visitas de más o menos 20 minutos. La guía de las cocinas algo prepotente pero bien. Para hacer la visita al palacio con guía nos dirigimos a la taquilla y enseguida nos metieron en un grupo y por solo 4€ por persona hicimos la visita con una guía espectacular. en general la sensación fue muy buena. Muy recomendable hacerlo con guía.

Seek g the kitchens. However there was an issue with out booking. We thought we had booked a palace AND kitchens tour, in English. When we arrived we discovered it was kitchens only, and in Spanish. One of us speaks a little Spanish so was able to u derogando the gist of the explanations. The other had only the visuals of the kitchens to get a sense of them. Also it would have been very helpful to have more clear directions as to where to go to join the tour. We were a little late as we had no ide where to go.

Todo bien, llegamos a la fila y tardamos poco en entrar,.el palacio y las cocinas super bonitos

Begin your tour with a stroll through the Plaza de la Ameria. Besides catching incredible views of the surrounding countryside, you can also appreciate the Baroque architecture of the palace from the courtyard. Information points are located in various rooms inside the palace to help visitors better understand the exhibits. If you are an art-lover, you will find a plethora of famous works by artists such as Francisco de Goya and Caravaggio. Art exhibitions are also often held inside the palace.

Learn more about all the major attractions in the palace such as the Hall of Columns, where Spain signed the agreement to enter the European Union. The Royal Armoury and the Grand Staircase are also fascinating sights. The 2000-square meter Royal Kitchen houses a wealth of preparation rooms and cooking equipment that are over 200 years old.
