  • Just outside the Royal Palace, we are located on a large green square, manicured hedges with impeccable geometry on the other side leads to the Royal theatre.

  • Sol was my tour guide. She was very knowledgable and showed it. Was able to answer all questions from the tourist. You could tell history is one of her passions. Also, very professional and kind.
  • A place worth a visit. It is gorgeous, beautiful and amazing. The sceneries are just out of a fairy tale. There are fountains and statues everywhere and to my luck there was a carousel . It is also located near the palace and a just a couple of minutes away from Plaza de España so you just sort of find yourself in it. Definitely a picturesque place.
