In Italy we have the Palazzo del Quirinale, in Rome. With more than 1200 monumental rooms (only the monumental ones, that is with frescoes or ancient decorations, not considering the others rooms) and roman villas and ruins above the gardens, is one of world's most remarkable palace, even if it is virtually unknown. For more than 500 years it was the official residence of the pope, and now is Italy's presidential palace. With 90000 square meters (some 1000000 square foot) is one of world's largest building. Let's have a look inside!



























































Before restorations:

some hidden frescoes found:

























Frescoed rooms now with ongoing restorations containing one of the best fresco set by famous Pietro da Cortona, Renaissace painter

Famouse frescoes of "singers angels" from renaissance painter Melozzo da Forlì:

The quirinal hill is the highest of the seven hills of Rome, and it dominates the city with a panoramical 360 degree tower:



...just to show a small fraction of the rooms of the palace. There are also great gardens inside:

Side view from a pintoresque plaza below the palace, near fontana di trevi:

The Royal Palace of Madrid is the official residence of the King of Spain, but it's only used for state ceremonies, since the Royal Family actually doesn't live there.
