While you may have to wait in line and pay an 8-10 euro entrance fee, the Royal Palace of Spain buts Versaille to shame. While Versaille, home of the French Royalty, is teeming with grandeur, the Spanish Royal Palace tops it. There is a room that is made out of porcelain, and one of fine velvet. While you don't get to tour the whole grounds, the parts you do get to view are splendidly gorgeous.

A large ceremonial changing of the guard procession occurs the first Wednesday of each month and is interesting if you like uniforms, horses and cannons. Get there early if that is your thing, it was very crowded in October when we happened upon it.

Madrid is different from any other capital and also the Palacios Real is something really special. The first time iI saw it, it was by chance. The square in front was absolutely empty, the light was dim. I had an impression of a really quite and powerful place.

The Palacio Real (Royal Palace) was built by the Bourbons after a fire ravaged the Hapsburg's Alcazar in 1734, which, up to that time, had been the home of Spanish Monarchs. The inside of the Royal Palace is one of the most beautiful sites I have ever witnessed. The monumental staircase is so grand, so majestic, that you will never forget the experience however long you live on this earth. And the ceiling, a product of the great Italian painter, Giaquinto, is a memorable site as well. I have never seen another Royal Palace anywhere in the world, that touched me like this Palace touched me.
