Lookout at the Ledge of the Royal Palace
Located in the Plaza de la Armería, between the Royal Palace and the Almudena Cathedral, is this newly opened viewpoint from which you can enjoy beautiful views of the Campo del Moro Gardens and the Casa de Campo. Mirador de la Cornisa of the Royal Palace National HeritageThis new space, managed by National Heritage, is framed in the improvement and adaptation works of what will be the welcome area and main access of the future Gallery of the Royal © Collections, whose inauguration is scheduled for the end of 2022. The entrance to the viewpoint is made by one of the five doors of the original enclosure of the palatial enclosure, a fence that was designed in 1899 by the main architect of the palace, Enrique Repullés Segarra and that was removed at the beginning of the construction works of the museum, in 2007.
Of the 52 meters in length of the fence, about half correspond to 5 double doors, offering very wide access to the viewpoint, while the rest of the fence rests on the original stone basement of Colmenar, whose ashlars have been cleaned and restored. The elements in poor condition of the wrought iron grille have also been straightened and replaced and the missing spearheads have been replaced, approaching 5 meters high from the ground. Access to the viewpoint is free from Monday to Sunday, from 12:00 to 22:00 hours.
