Changing of The Guard at the Army Headquarters

Changing of The Guard at the Army Headquarters

On one of the corners of Plaza Cibeles, you have the Palacio de Buenavista, where the Cuartel General del Ejército, (Army Headquarters), is located.

This picture was taken from Alcalá Street, and it shows the sculpture “El Valor” (Courage) , the soldiers in the garden overlooking the main (south) facade of the Palacio de Buenavista.

This palace is very difficult to see from the street, because it is surrounded by a lush garden with big trees, and it is rarely open to the public, for one to get close enough to photograph the exterior of the building.

The Changing of the Guard, is usually held on the last Friday of each month, at 11:00 hours, but there are also other occasions.
