Visited the El Pardo palace which is a short journey out of Madrid centre. The palace is situated in the lovely town of El Pardo which is about 20 mins bus journey from Madrid. The palace can only be viewed with a guide. The English guide is at 12 noon.
We were taken through the various rooms with our guide. who spoke very good English and told us all about the history of the palace and the various rooms. The palace is very well kept and has very brilliantly decorated ceilings and tapestries. The tour seemed very personal and you get to see not just the grand rooms but personal things such as bathrooms etc which you don't normally get to see in a palace visit. It was very quiet when we visited the palace and I tend to think this palace is a bit of a forgotten gem. Well worth a visit for history lovers.
