your experience

Hop aboard a comfortable air-conditioned bus and head straight to the former royal residence and monastery of El Escorial, considered by many to be the 8th wonder of the world. Commissioned by King Felipe II, this vast palace became a symbol of the greatness of the Spanish Empire in the 16th and 17th centuries. Upon arrival, your guide will give you an explanation from the outside, after which you can set off exploring the palace on your own. Wander inside the remarkable library that features beautiful frescoes on its ceilings. You can also visit the Habsburg Palace and the Chapter House.

Board your bus again at the end of the guided tour for a short drive (about 9 kilometers) to Sierra de Guadarrama, where you can see the Valley of the Fallen. You’ll be able to see it from far, far away thanks to the gigantic 500-foot cross (the largest cross in the world) built over the site. The monument was built by General Franco to commemorate those who lost their lives in the Spanish Civil War.
