The Palacio Real or Royal Palace is the largest palace in Europe. It has more than 2000 luxuriously decorated rooms, 50 of which can be visited. The Palace was built between 1734 till 1764 by Juan Bautista Sacchetti and Francisco de Sabatini for the King of Spain. Today the royal family lives in the small Zarzuela Palace, a former hunting lodge outside Madrid. The Royal Palace is still used for official ceremonies and receptions. The palace also includes the Arméria Real, the royal army museum and collections of art.
