Madrid - The Palacio Real de Madrid is the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family, but is only used for state ceremonies. King Juan Carlos and the Royal Family do not reside in the palace, choosing instead the more modest Palacio de la Zarzuela on the outskirts of Madrid.
Palacio de Cibeles Madrid Spain. The cathedral-like landmark was built in 1909 by Antonio Palacios. This impressive building was home to the Postal & Telegraphic Museum until 2007 when the landmark building became the Madrid City Hall (Ayuntamiento de Madrid) / Photo: freemysoul, via Flickr
