That is the Palacio Real del Pardo. Is where Franco lived and where, nowdays, the foreigh visitors (royals and statesmen) stay :) . The probably confunde both because the Zarzuela and El Pardo stay in the same zone ;)
 
The kings would never move to El Pardo. That was were Franco lived and so, that palace, have many conotations with the dictatory years in Spain ;) .

I never seem pics of greek palaces, so i can't compare :p

Isn't it the palace where Kaiserin Zita of Austria lived shortly after the death of Kaiser Karl?
