What to expect

The Monastery of El Escorial was built under the reign of the powerful King Philip II to be a residence for the Spanish kings. Used as a monastery and Pantheon for the royal family, it became the symbol of the great power of the Spanish Empire at the time. The monument was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage Site list, having artistic and historic interest. The visit includes the monastery, the Cloister of the Four Evangelists, the Palace of Philip II, the Pantheons of the Royal Family, the Chapter houses, as well as the basilica.

The Valley of the Fallen is a monument built as a memorial for those who died during the Spanish Civil War in 1936. Located in a beautiful valley in the mountains of Guadarrama, this impressive work has a colossal cross (over 150 meters high). Here you will also see the basilica and the crypt carved into the hard rock under the mountain. This tour includes the entrance to the Valley and the visit inside the basilica.

In the afternoon, you will visit Segovia (via Madrid). This old Roman city is rich in historical monuments and still preserves the magnificent roman aqueduct from the time of emperor Augustus. Here, we will visit the Alcázar fortress; the most spectacular castle and medieval construction known in Spain.
