Europe Trip Day 10: The King & the Mayor

April 2, 2012

On Friday, we visited the Royal Palace. It’s where King Juan Carlos lives. It was an incredible tour with interesting things to see. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed inside the palace. We also checked out the Royal Armoury.

We took a bus tour around the city. Madrid is filled with fountains.

We had lentil soup and really nice pork chops for lunch.

We were given 3-hours of free time at Puerta del Sol.

There were cafés, shops, street performers, and street vendors.

We then walked over to the Plaza Mayor. This used to be the main square in Madrid.

Just outside of Plaza Mayor, we had our tapas dinner at the Pub La Mazmorra. It was great fun. There was live music and the sangria was flowing….

For dessert, we had chocolate churros. It was alright….

This was our final night in Europe. We didn’t want it to end. We took the Metro back to our hotel.
