An endless arcade at Royal Palace...
The Royal Palace of Aranjuez (Spanish: Palacio Real de Aranjuez) is a residence of the King of Spain, located in the town of Aranjuez, Community of Madrid, Spain. The palace is open to the public as one of the Spanish royal sites.
It was commissioned by Philip II and designed by Juan Bautista de Toledo and Juan de Herrera, who also designed El Escorial. It was completed during the reign of Ferdinand VI by the mid-18th century; Charles III had two wings added to it.
The huge gardens, built to relieve its royal residents from the dust and drought of the Spanish meseta using the waters of the adjacent Tagus and Jarama rivers, are Spain's most important of the Habsburg period. The Jardín de la Isla is on a man-made island bounded by the River Tagus and the Ria Canal. The Jardín del Principe contains a miniature palace (the Casa del Labrador, built for Charles IV) and the Museo de las Falúas Reales, housing the most important extant collection of Spain's royal pleasure barges.
The Concierto de Aranjuez is a composition for classical guitar and orchestra written by Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo, who was inspired by the palace gardens. The work attempts to take the listener through sounds of nature in and around the gardens during the period in which it was written.
The palace's important art and historical collections include the Museo de la Vida en Palacio, describing the daily lives of Spain's monarchs.

A nice shot that uses very well the perspective lines and repetitive shapes to add depth to the composition. I think a human presence would have made the picture better again.
Thanks for sharing,

Con esta perspectiva ya tengo claro que nos quieres hundir a todos los que ponemos perspectivas:)))Coñas aparte, tengo que felicitarte por semejante fotón amigo. Tremenda!

Great composition and beautiful photo! The lighting is also good! But I agree with Olivier; a person, or maybe a bench or something (however, that isn't exactly something you control..) would make the picture even better! But well seen.

Congratulations on your TE 1200th Post and many more to come.
Your infinity corridor view is a fine representative of Aranjuez, and another good reason to visit Madrid.
The ancient construction is visible in your monochrome vision.
