The inside story
The Royal Palace of Madrid (Palacio Real de Madrid) is the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family; however, it is currently only used for receptions, ceremonies and official events. Nowadays, the kings of Spain reside in the Zarzuela Palace (Palacio de la Zarzuela), located on the outskirts of the Spanish capital. The Royal Palace is on the site of the former Quarterdeck of Madrid, a medieval fortress converted into a sumptuous palace by Juan II, Carlos V and Felipe II. The Quarterdeck was destroyed by fire on Christmas Eve of 1734.
The construction of the Royal Palace began in 1738 and ended in 1764, year in which Carlos III established his residence there. Also known as "Palacio de Oriente", it is surrounded by the gardens of Campo del Moro and Sabatini Gardens.The building is inspired by Bernini's sketches for the construction of the Louvre in Paris, and is built around a square courtyard. It has a gallery and a "Plaza de Armas", where the main face of the palace is located.
