Nice palace just outside Madrid. Especially the tapestries are worthwhile, some based on cartoons of Goya (on display in the Prado, 2nd floor). Recent history also dealt with: Franco was the last 'chief of state' who used El Pardo.

The journey out to the palace was straightforward. Metro from Plaza Sol, line 3 to Moncloa then the 601 bus to Pardo. The bus station is underground with the metro station. Just ask at information where to catch the 601. We wandered about a bit...More

This is one of the stops of the hop on/off bus in Madrid. We went in the afternoon so the line was not too long. You may want to order tickets online. It was interesting, not as opulent as Versailles and not as crowded. Lots...More

Entry was a bit chaotic with long line for audio guide, but well worth it. Nice overview of Spanish history and, of course, some spectacular rooms.

First you should check whether the palace is open before you set out because it is often closed. This is because it provides accommodation for Heads of State and their entourages during state visits and of course is not open at these times. Take the...More

When I first approached this palace, it reminded me of the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria ........I had forgotten to connect the dots between the Spanish Royals and the Habsburgs....a good history lesson ....

The palace is interesting but not that big so you can see this in around 90 minutes not counting the wait for tickets. They have a nice shop too.

For someone like me with an interest in Francisco Franco this is a must-see. As is known Franco made El Pardo his home and headquarters and ruled Spain with an iron hand for 36 years (1939-75) mostly from this palace. If you do the tour...More
