Madrid - Monday 9/23 - Walking Tour part 3

Photos are not permitted inside the Royal Palace.  So don't look for any pictures here.
It's easy for Americans to forget that Spain has a Royal Family.  Juan Carlos surprised everyone when he rejected the opportunity to rule, empowering a constitutional monarchy in 1978.

Here's a view of Plaza Mayor:

This restaurant next door to our apartment is a real prize!  Featuring white linen tablecloths, great service, and better prices than those offered at mediocre tourist traps near Puerta del Sol, we highly recommend La Gloria de la Montaña.
