  • Purchasing tickets in advance could save you time in line, but it also means you have to get to the palace at a certain time slot. I personally don’t think advance tickets are necessary for this Palace (vs. places like Alhambra in Granada, where advanced ticket purchase is important). I was in Madrid in the summer time (in August) and didn’t have to wait to get into the Palace without an advance purchase. So if you don’t mind the set time for the visit, then book your tickets ahead. If not, just purchase your tickets when you get to the Palace.

Other tips:

  • People usually just see the palace from the outside and don’t end up going inside, but inside of the palace is very beautiful and I felt like it was worth the visit (I have been to other castles or palaces around Europe, but I thought this palace had one of the best details for each of the rooms in the palace).
  • Unfortunately, they don’t let you take photos inside the palace, so I couldn’t take pictures of the beautiful rooms in the palace (my pictures below are from the entrance of the palace and after this point, no photos are allowed)
  • If you are visiting Madrid during the summer time, where the heat is very strong in the afternoon, I recommend visiting inside of the palace in the afternoon so you can be away from the heat ;)
