cornice of the Royal Palace

 

National Heritage has reopened the viewpoint of the cornice of the Royal Palace of Madrid. After almost fifteen years closed, come back to admire the best views of the capital!

The viewpoint of the cornice of the Historical Complex offers one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the city to contemplate the Campo del Moro and the Casa de Campo. 

With the inauguration of the viewpoint, the five gates that make up the historic gate have also been opened for the first time. In addition, the gate has been relocated and is now located between the Royal Armory and the Almudena Cathedral.

The opening of the gates and the relocation of the gate, which is now at a greater distance from the viewpoint, represent the consummation of a project consisting of the reinterpretation of the cornice as a tourist space, a new space prior to the museum of the Royal Collections.

The reopening of the iconic viewpoint of the cornice, is part of an agreement that Patrimonio Nacional signed with the City of Madrid to improve access to the museum of the Royal Collections.

You can enjoy these unbeatable views offered by the cornice viewpoint every day of the week for free from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Don't forget to bring your camera, you won't be able to resist taking some pictures of one of the most beautiful landscapes of the city of Madrid!
