Photographer's Note

The Royal Palace of Madrid (Spanish: Palacio Real de Madrid, also called Palacio de Oriente) is the official residence of the King of Spain, located in Madrid. King Juan Carlos I and the royal family do not actually reside in this palace, but in the smaller Zarzuela Palace, on the outskirts of Madrid. However, the Palacio Real is still used for state occasions.

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 Western Europe in size, with a combined area of over 135,000 m² and more than 2,800 rooms.
