Madrid, the capital of Spain, is one of the most important cities in the world. It combines the modern with the cultural, the artistic and the ancient, the result of centuries of captivating history.

On this tour we'll show you the Royal Palace. Near the Plaza Mayor is the "aristocratic centre" of Madrid, home to the stunning Royal Palace. It is a 18th century monument that combines Baroque and Classical styles.

We will also show you a multi-faceted Madrid. Starting from its Arab-fortress origins to the court days, during the reign of Philip II and that of Charles III, you will see the development of this great city. This is the period when some important building schemes were undertaken, and finally present day Madrid, one of the most important European capitals.
