Royal Palace of Madrid
January, 2023

Madrid boasts many his­tor­i­cal and cul­tur­al land­marks, but per­haps none are quite as grand and majes­tic as the Palace of Madrid. The palace, also known as the Pala­cio Real, is a beau­ti­ful exam­ple of Span­ish archi­tec­ture, with its ornate facades and beau­ti­ful gardens.

The tem­ple of Debod, an ancient Egypt­ian tem­ple gift­ed to Spain in the 1960s, is sit­u­at­ed a lit­tle over a mile to the north and offers a per­fect view of the palace, mak­ing it a ter­rif­ic spot to cap­ture this pho­to just before sunset. 

This scene was one of the most beau­ti­ful moments in our quick, three-day stopover in Madrid.
