Mañana de domingo súper enriquecedora

★★★★★ Reviewed by Lura on 2017-12-03
Hemos pasado una mañana de domingo estupenda, visitando el Palacio Real de Madrid con sus diferentes salas de estilo borbón (azul) y salzburgo (rojas), impresionantes! Así como otras con evocaciones a otras culturas (asiática, etc). La guía (Marina) nos explicó un montón de curiosidades, así como nos explicó cronológicamente la historia de sucesión de una forma muy amena y los diferentes retratos con su significado. Después visitamos el Retiro y aprendimos más curiosidades sobre las calles madrileñas y el propio jardín. Un 10 de mañana! Una suerte haber ido a las 9 ya que más tarde había mucha gente!
