An expert local guide introduces you to the landmarks of a city that has served as Spain's capital since 1561, when Habsburg Philip II named it as his royal headquarters. Until then, it was a relatively unknown village. Next, visit the extravagant Palacio Real (Royal Palace), built for Bourbon King Philip V to replace the burned Alcázar. Walk through the 2,800 room palace and marvel at the sheer opulence.
