The Palacio Real de Madrid
The Palacio Real de Madrid (The Royal Palace of Madrid), also known as the Palacio de Oriente (The Orient Palace, or Far East Palace), is the official residence of the King of Spain in the city of Madrid, but it is only used for state ceremonies. King Juan Carlos and the Royal Family do not reside in the palace, choosing instead the more modest Palacio de la Zarzuela on the outskirts of Madrid.

House of kings
Philip V of Spain ordered the construction of this palace.
Madrid's Royal Palace was built in the 18th century, by order of Philip V, on the site of the old Alcázar fortress, a former Moorish castle. Sachetti began the works in 1738, and the building was completed in 1764. Sabatini designed the southeast wing and the great staircase, or staircase of honour. It has a square floor plan with a large central courtyard. The Puerta del Príncipe doorway on the east side gives access to the central courtyard. The Sabatini and Campo del Moro Gardens are among the Palace’s other attractions, as well as its several different façades. There some debate as to its artistic style; it is thought by some experts to belong more to the Baroque, and by others to the Neo-classical style. Of particular note among its numerous rooms are the Royal Guards' Room, the Columns Room, the Hall of Mirrors and King Charles III’s room, amongst others. It also contains paintings by Velázquez, Goya, Rubens, El Greco and Caravaggio.

Parque del Retiro
 
The Jardines del Buen Retiro or Parque del Buen Retiro is the main park of the city of Madrid, capital of Spain.
A beautiful park in the heart of the city, a well cared for space of 295 acre with formal gardens, trees and a large lake..
Created in the 17 century by Felipe IV so that his courtiers could spend time there for fun and relaxation. In those days there would be bull fights, theatre and fireworks. A hundred or so years later the park was opened to the public by Carlos III.
So now 'Madrilanos' stroll along Paseo del Estanque, the adults relaxing and the children watching puppet theatres.
