Get ready to discover 2 monumental places located near the Spanish capital with an expert guide! On this trip from Madrid, you'll admire the UNESCO-listed El Escorial and the impressive Valley of the Fallen.

Accompanied by your expert guide, you'll walk through the historic center of the town, passing through the Felipe II park. Your guide will explain the reasons that led the monarch to order the construction of the Royal Monastery of El Escorial in the 16th century. Don't miss the chance to visit the surroundings, admiring the exterior of this impressive monument and, discover many of its secrets, such as "The legend of the gold bricks", as well as some of the anecdotes that the King starred in this place.

Your tour will continue in the Valley of the Fallen, where you'll appreciate its 150 meters high cross, the Basilica carved into the rock of the mountain, and of course, the spectacular views of the Madrid mountain range. You'll have the opportunity to enter the monument so that you can enjoy its peculiar corners on your own.
