What To Expect

See the UNESCO World Heritage site of El Escorial on this day trip from Madrid, including the Royal Monastery and Basilica in the Valley of the Fallen. Your day will begin early in the morning when you meet your bilingual guide at the Plaza Ramales. Board the comfortable bus for the 45km ride to El Escorial. Your first stop will be the grand Royal Monastery, a legacy of the former Spanish Empire. This grand building was once considered the 8th wonder of the world and houses the mausoleum for many Spanish monarchs. Your guide will take you through the buildings and explain the history behind each of the rooms. Pass through the Chapter Houses, the Weapons Room, the Library, the Mausoleums, and more! Once you have finished touring the Royal Monastery, the tour will continue to the Basilica in the Valley of the Fallen, a monument to the casualties of the Spanish Civil War. This basilica is situated high on a mountain above the valley, with a towering 150 m cross standing above it. Make sure to take lots of pictures of the stunning views from this area. The tour ends here and the group will return to the bus to make the journey back to Madrid.

    嚮導為我們介紹了西班牙內戰的歷史,也講了很多有趣的事情,是一次不錯的行程拉!
  • LE* 22 Jun 2017
    修道院的面積真的好大,建築風格也不是在歐洲常見的哥特風,十分的簡樸美觀,英靈谷的巨大十字架與基座相得益彰,推薦! !

    好棒的地方噢,让人心驰神往,环境超美~~~~
