What to expect

Don't miss the opportunity to get to know these three essential attractions on the surroundings of Madrid in just one day!

Discover two of the most important cities of the Castilian plateau and World Heritage Site: Ávila, known for its 12th century walls, and Segovia, where one of the best preserved Roman aqueducts in the world is located. In addition, visit the Monastery of El Escorial and its basilica, burial place of the kings of Spain.

You will leave Madrid early in the morning towards Ávila, where you will stop at the view point “cuatro postes”. Afterwards we will go to the city to start the walking tour, passing by the Sanctuary of San Vicente and the Cathedral and of course, the walls.

Afterwards we will leave for Segovia, your guide will explain to the group everything about the creation of the aqueduct by the Romans. Then you will continue the route through the streets of the city centre, where you will pass through the cathedral, continuing through the district of the Canonries, until you reach the famous Alcázar, symbol of the art and history of Spain. There you will have free time to have lunch, do some shopping or access some of the monuments on your own.

Once the break is over, we will go to El Escorial, where we will visit the inside of its monastery. There, under the guidance of the guide, we will discover this architectural complex that includes a royal palace, a basilica, a pantheon, a library, a school and a monastery.
