The ’Solemn Changing of the Royal Guard’ is one of the most important Madrid’s traditions. 

Historically, it takes place in the Armoury Square, and takes about an hour. The troops parading are dressed in traditional uniform of the Royal Guard, which consists of three colors: red, blue and white. 

When the military band begins to play the ceremony officially begins. The sounds of a high-pitched flute and drumroll accompany the fascinating procession. 

In total, 400 people and 100 horses stage the changing of the guard as it was performed in the times of King Alfonso XII and King Alfonso XIII, wearing the same uniforms. 

Everything to take you back in time!
