Discovering inland Spain
Come and recreate history in the inland regions of Spain by visiting its numerous castles and fortresses. This is an ideal way of learning more about the country's historical and artistic heritage while you explore the sites of battles, and imagine the life of a knight errant or a princess at the height of the Middle Ages. Come in and discover the monuments which are open to visitors, and enjoy the dramatised tours available at some of the sites for an extra special experience.
Fancy attending a concert in a 15th-century castle? The venue is the castle of Manzanares el Real , only 50 kilometres outside the city of Madrid . This is a castle which in summer becomes an absolutely essential place to visit. When the sun goes down you can enjoy a sound and light show, a variety of music programmes, and dramatised visits by night. What's more, all year round you can tour the monument accompanied by actors who perform dramatisations to highlight the most interesting spaces in the castle.
Changing of the guard
This is not a castle, but in fact a royal palace set amid beautiful gardens and in the very heart of the city. We are talking of the Royal Palace in Madrid, and we highly recommend timing your visit to coincide with the first Wednesday of the month so you can see for yourself the solemn ceremony of the Changing of the Royal Guard. All other Wednesdays you can enjoy a less elaborate version of this event.
Advance booking is advisable for all the activities in the castle of Manzanares el Real.
The regular changing of the guard and the ceremonial changing of the guard at the Royal Palace are suspended during July, August and September.
