The Royal Palace of Madrid -Statue (Pigeon Perch)


The Palacio de Oriente, (English: The East Palace), also known as the Palacio Real de Madrid (Royal Palace of Madrid), is the official residence of the King of Spain in the city of Madrid and is used for State occasions.


However, King Juan Carlos and the royal family do not reside in this palace, instead choosing the modest Palacio de la Zarzuela on the outskirts of Madrid. The palace is owned by the Spanish state and administered by the Patrimonio Nacional agency.

The palace also has the distinction of being the largest royal palace in Europe in size, with a combined area of over 135,000 m² and more than 2,800 rooms. -
