Teatro Real is a grand stately looking building, very large and fits in with the architecture of the palace opposite. Looks like it's been heavily restored and maybe changed but looks no worse for that.

In an opulent yet modern interior, this Opera House founded in the mid 1800s and renovated in the late 20th century is located right by the Royal Palace. Check your schedule before your trip and if they have something that appeals, book your tickets online....More

It's nice to go and see the building just to say you have visited here. However, unless you are a theatre lover and actually going to go inside then be prepared to be underwhelmed. The building is very nice but not good enough to go...More

Located by the Real Palace, purchased tickets to see Madam Butterfly. A stunning production as expected, soaking up the atmosphere within, and drinks on the first floor balcony a magical evening. Don't worry about clothing formality if it is an unexpected visit, not too formal...More

An interesting tour even if opera isn't your thing. As well as seeing a beautiful theatre, you get an insight into the workings of a major venue such as this, I never realised how much goes on in the background. We only did the tour...More

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
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
