We went first to the Real Madrid stadium, at 81,000 people capacity, which is the only stadium that has hosted all three tournaments- the World Cup, the European Championship and Copa America’s final. The Bernabéu Tour was truly an experience; we saw many videos, displays, and memorabilia and we were able to visit the field and the locker rooms. Real Madrid is one of the most widely supported teams in the world, has earned more trophies and won more championships than any other club in sports history and the club is worth $4.1 billion.
Afterwards, we went to the Museo Del Prado and students were impressed to see XVI-XVII century art by Velazquez, Goya, Bosch, Rubens, and El Greco. The El Prado museum has a large collection and is one of the world’s most important art museums, and it is among the most visited museums worldwide.
The visit to the Palacio Real which King Felipe still uses for official visits was astonishing. There, we saw decorated rooms covered with gold, marble, and porcelain. This palace is larger that Buckingham and Versailles and the largest functioning Royal Palace in Europe. .
On the most impressive areas is the Royal Armoury of Madrid or Real Armería de Madrid, a collection that contains the personal arms of the Kings of Spain, and also houses military weapons, armours and diplomatic works of art like mixed tapestries, paintings and other works of art and trophies. According to Wikipedia it is considered, one of the best in the world. and even it is often described as "the best collection of its kind in the world".
