Ticket Stub: Palacio Real De Madrid

In the courtyard of the Royal Palace

Headless Mannequins were everywhere outside the Palace

Taken from one side of the courtyard to the other

Catedral de Santa Maria la Real de la Almudena just outside the palace gates.

Front entrance to the Palace.
Unfortunately i was not able to take photos from inside the Palace but the art, tapestries and furnishings were very grand. Lots of detail in every piece. It only cost me 5 euro as i had a student card and so the 5 euro i saved i used 4 euro to rent a little device that was programed to English for me that you held like a phone to hear all about the palace and all the rooms that are on display. It was quite a handy device, literally. 
The only downfall is as the rooms are roped of and lots of people go to see the palace there can be a bit of a tight squeeze.
But it was a beautiful sunny day and was wonderful walking around and learning some history.
