The power of heaven and the power of man meet face to face on the hill that gave birth to Madrid….
Discover with our Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral Tour the countless stories and elements of great beauty housed in these two iconic buildings of Madrid.
We will start the guided tour, which lasts about three hours, next to the Ópera Metro station. From there we will go to the Almudena Cathedral, named after the legendary apparition of a Virgin inside the Islamic wall of the city.
Once inside the Almudena we will know all the details of its architecture, both exterior and interior, and explain why it is so different from other Spanish cathedrals. We will also learn the reason for its youth (it is considered the youngest cathedral in the country), an explanation directly linked to the competition for power in the capital of the Hispanic monarchy.
Afterwards, we will cross the Plaza de la Armería to visit the biggest Royal Palace in Western Europe.
We will enter through the group entrance, so we will not have to wait in the long line that usually stands in front of the main gate. Once inside, we will marvel at the exquisiteness and ostentation that characterizes its rooms, such as the splendid ceremonial rooms, with their ceilings and walls decorated with frescoes and paintings by renowned artists. You can also tour the impressive royal rooms, with their imposing decor and original furnishings. Highlights include the Throne Room, the Porcelain Room, the Gasparini Room, the Hall of Mirrors and the very rich Library.
Come and discover with our Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral Tour, the earthly and the sacred, through the imprint that art left forever in Madrid!
