We had the guided tour (done in English) which was led by a very knowledgable gentleman who had all kinds of stories of the theatre he told us throughout the tour. Building doesn't seem that impressive on first impressions but the state rooms are amazing....More

Amazing historical building in the heart of Madrid. An important part of history for those who want to learn about opera and why it’s so popular in Spain.
