I really liked the combination of audio guide and real person who took us around. As I use a cane and stairs are difficult for me the elevator was a real help. I was supposed to visit another part of the palace for my cousin and me.The gentleman at ticket window said the tickets were a scam. I didn’t keep the 2 tickets but was disappointed. The tickets were bought on line and didn’t seem like a scam. My private guide probably waited for us inside,,, Patricia L Burns

Remarkably organized visit. Audio guide which allows a confined atmosphere with rare interventions from the guide. The Palace is sumptuous and perfectly maintained. It's a journey through Beauty, paintings, sculptures, porcelain, trinkets, lounges and library, everything is harmonious. Not to be missed, Stendhal syndrome guaranteed.

The visit to El Palacio de Liria is very interesting , well organized and informative . I strongly recommend it … great art , furniture and statues . The visit to the library is probably the best part of the tour

Precious palace filled with incredible history, arts and soul. Absolutely recommended.

Visita muy amena me gusto mucho, muy recomendable.
