What to expect

The Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial is one of the best representations of the ideological and cultural aspirations of Spain’s “Golden Age”. It was built under the reign of the powerful king Philip II to be the Residence of the kings, Monastery and Pantheon of the Royal Family, becoming a symbol of the great power of the Spanish empire on that time. The monument was declared of Artistic and Historic interest, and World Heritage in the year 1984. During the tour you will visit the interior of the Monastery, the Cloister of the Four Evangelists, the Royal Palace of Philip II, Pantheons of the Royal Family, the Chapterhouses, and the Basilica.

The Valle de los Caídos (Valley of the Fallen) is a monument built as a memorial of those who died during the Spanish Civil war. Located in the beautiful Valley of Cuelgamuros, in the Mountains of Guadarrama, this impressive work includes a colossal cross over 150 mtrs. high, and the Basilica and Crypt excavated in the hard rock under the mountain. This tour includes the entrance to the Valley and the visit inside the Basilica.
