Right in front of the Royal Palace of Madrid, this Theatre looks like another landmark to visit. Although I did not go inside, I cannot say very much about it. There was an esplanade on the first floor but it was reserved for an event...More

I had a skim at some of these reviews - if you're paying €40 for a ticket, what do you expect? I saw Madame Butterfly and paid around €100 for my ticket and it was amazing. I was on the first floor, balcony 9 and...More

Teatro is directly across from the Palace across the plaza de Oriente. An easy walk if you are at the palace or Cathedral Almudena. Not really that exciting.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
