Some palace in Spain..
Plaza Mayor..apparently the meeting point for most spaniards..
At El escorial...
El Escorial - the royal monasteries, I've never seen so many royal coffins in one place before! We had an excellent guide who took us through a very informative 2 1/2 hr walk across the monastery!
Pity that picture taking was forbidden everywhere inside...
At the point where picture taking was still allowed!
Outside the Opera house. Waiting for our 7.30 pm dinner at a nearby cosy and quaint little restuarant. For 51 Euros, they serve you bubbly, free flow of wines, starters, main and the dessert. Oh they even had some 'opera-ish' singer entertaining us.
