Today we had a full day of activities starting with a visit to the Royal Palace. Here we visited only a handful of the 3,418 rooms! Some rooms had walls of porcelain and others of silk. It was quite a tour. We also wandered through the armory with an array of full armor for adults, children, and horses.From the palace we jumped on the metro to visit the Bernabéu soccer stadium. Paige and Annie were lucky to catch a photo with Ronaldo.

After Bernabéu we retreated to Retiro Park. Here the students rented some row boats and then explored only a slice of the 350 acres of gardens, lakes, and statues.

After a satisfying Italian dinner we visited a beautiful rooftop terrace on the 9th floor of the Corte Inglés. Here we said adios to Madrid by taking in the stunning views of the city center.

We will miss Madrid, but look forward to our next adventure in Salamanca!
