On a rainy Saturday morning, I added Palacio Real de Madrid to my collection of Castles and Palaces. (“Collect the whole set!”)
I haven’t done a count recently of how many royal residences I’ve visited over the years, but I think it’s somewhere in the 30 or 40s, including many of the biggies like Versailles, Neuschwanstein, Linderhof, Sanssouci, Schönbrunn, Nymphenburg, Hampton Court, and Kensington. It’s a thing I do.
My politics may lean Left, but at heart, I’m a royalist.
The Palace doesn’t allow photography in the state rooms, but I found these pictures online.
