As 12th October is The National Day of the Armed Forces, there will be a special military procession, starting in the centre of Madrid, and finishing at the Plaza de Colón.
The soldiers march before the Royal Family, and the biggest flag in the whole of Spain is raised! Every year thousands of Madrileños, foreign officials, leaders from other autonomous communities in Spain and of course visitors to Madrid, all gather to watch the incredible procession and admire the must-see display from the talented Spanish Air Force.
