Day 4 was spent back in Madrid, with three key events. First, a tour of the Spanish Royal Palace, still the official residence of the Spanish Royal family and King Felipe (Phillip) IV, although the family lives in a more modest palace on the outskirts of Madrid, and reserves this palace for state ceremonies. Second, a walk through the old city to the Reina Sofia Museum, a museum of modern art, including a good number of Picassos and works by Salvador Dali. Third, a night at the bullfights, which are posted in a separate section.
