In A Dark Time

Built in the 15th century as a hunting residence for King of Spain, Charles V transformed the residence into a palace in the 16th century. The palace still has some of the original medieval elements, including a moat and medieval corner towers. The building was renovated in the 18th and 20th century and is now twice as large as the original structure. After the Spanish Civil War, dictator Francisco Franco lived in the palace, but it is now used to house visiting heads of state. Visitors can see the frescoes, paintings, and elaborate tapestries inside the palace, as well as the beautiful Palace Gardens.
