And they were making a photo of... Palacio Real


Click on image to enlarge it!
I turned myself back and this is what they were photographing from Madrid Vision bus. It really worths a photo uh?
This is Royal Palace of Madrid, a huge place where our Royal family don't live anymore (they live in a smaller Palace out of the town).
Royal Palace was built up in 1755 and is one of the largest in all of Western Europe after the Louvre, occupying an area of 135,000 m² (!!). It's richly decorated by artists such as Velázquez, Caravaggio and Goya and several royal collections of great historical importance are kept in there (more in wikipedia link, spanish one is more complete and has more photos).
But the good thing is that you can go inside and enjoy them! So this is a must-see of Madrid :)

Después de la foto de ayer, giré sobre mí misma y esto es lo que fotografiaban desde el autobús. La verdad es que merece la pena eh?
Este es Palacio Real, una construcción enorme donde nuestros reyes no viven (ellos viven en otro Palacio, a las afueras de la ciudad).
El Palacio Real fue terminado en 1755 y es uno de los mayores de toda Europa, después del Louvre, ocupando un área de 135.000 m² (!!). Su interios está decorado por artistas de la talla de Goya, Velázquez y Caravaggio (entre otros) y además ahi se guardan numerosas colecciones de gran importancia histórica (más en el enlace a Wikipedia).
Pero lo mejor de todo es que puedes entrar y disfrutar de estas maravillas! Asi que esta es una visita obligada en Madrid :)

What a magnificent building.
I was thinking of going to Barcelona (only 5 hours away from here) but you've persuaded me to go to Madrid instead..

Stunning building and I bet the inside is amazing too. Madrid, of course, is so beautiful - so good to have your photographs, dsole.
