4. The Royal Palace (El Palacio Real)

This palace is still used for official visits and is the residence of the kings of Spain, although they don't actually live in it. It is the largest palace in Western Europe, well ahead of Versailles and Buckingham.

7. El Congreso de los Diputados (Congress of the Deputy)

This is where the Parliament of Spain is based at. Normally you can not get access to the inside of the building (this is only possible via the Constitución Bridge, between 6th and 8th December each year) but tourists love to take photos of the bronze lions on the door.

8. La Catedral de la Almudena (Almudena Cathedral)

This is the main cathedral in Madrid. Although it was consecrated in 1993 and, therefore, has to be regarded as a fairly recent building, it is still a monument of such magnitude that attracts thousands of visitors every day.
