What to Expect
Visit the spectacular El Escorial Monastery on this 5-hour guided tour from Madrid. A symbol of Spanish power in the 16th century, it commemorates the victory in the Battle of St. Quentin. It is also the site of the mausoleum for Charles V.

Built in the Renaissance Humanist style, it was considered the 8th wonder of the world for some time. See the Hapsburgs Palace, the Kings and Princes Mausoleum, the Chapter Houses, the Architecture Room, the Weapons Room, the Library, and the Basilica.

Afterwards, you’ll visit the Basilica of the Valley of the Fallen, conditions permitting. This enormous monument, built between 1940 and 1959 is carved into the mountain, 1,350 meters up. An impressive 150-meter-high cross stands over the magnificent nature reserve of Madrid’s mountain range.

After your guide’s commentary, you’ll have free time to admire the wonderful views of the Sierra de Madrid.
