Let's get together to witness one of the most beautiful military ceremonies around the world, usually attended by hundreds of people.

The Changing of the Guard, which is a ceremony with great symbolism and tradition, emerged in Protected content , resuming an old military tradition.

In the ceremony, participate one-hundred and sixty Protected content military elements that constitute the Palace Guards (the relieved guard and the relieving guard), the Music Band, a Platoon on horseback that escorts the bearer of the password, the Charanga (brass band) on horseback and the K-9 dogs and dog handlers.

On the balcony of the Palace, three buglers herald the beginning of the ceremony, with the military parade and the Music Band performing military marches, as well as a musical piece that differs every month.

At the end of the ceremony, the brass band on horseback performs in the near park.
