During this 5-hour tour, you will visit the 18th-century Royal Palace and stroll through the vast gardens, built to relieve the Spanish royals from the dust of the Spanish meseta. Two of the most prominent of the many rooms are the Porcelain Office, built under the orders of King Charles III, and Queen Isabel´s Throne Room. Admire the opulent interior, full of gilded mirrors, chandeliers and paintings.
Wander the gardens, once considered the most beautiful of their time. The woods, hedgerow paths, ornate kiosks and dreamy fountains still leave visitors speechless. Highlights include the Parterre Garden, Island Garden and a huge variety of vegetables and trees.
Finally, explore the Museum of the Royal Feluccas to see one of most spectacular collections of boats used by the royal family to navigate the Tagus River, including a gondola belonging to Philip V.
