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.

    Different from other buildings in EUR. A beautiful place, will come again.

    修道院非常壯觀,可以好好了解西班牙皇室的歷史,英文導遊講解幽默風趣,巴士也很舒服,但禁止飲食,而聖靈谷也非常壯闊,天氣好怎麼拍都好看!非常推薦
  • CHIEN-HUNG 10 Nov 2017
    活動實際上由Julia Travel承辦,事前在Tripadvisor上看到的評價不高,但多是寫說大旅遊車人多、導遊不友善之類,但實際上大台遊覽車比小廂型車舒服太多了~ 一團10幾個人其實也還好,導遊全程西班牙文+英文解說且會嚴格拿捏控制時間避免延誤行程,這次跟過幾次local tour,歐洲人守時觀念其實大部分都很差,比被刻板印象的中國人還差,導遊都會有點生氣的對他們警告說再擅自脫隊就要發車走人,他們自己想辦法回去,我想這是導遊被歐洲遊客評為不友善的原因吧,因為我跟另一個南美洲來念書的女孩一直都有跟緊導遊聽解說也沒有擅自脫隊消失去買咖啡在遲到集合啥之類的,導遊對我們就非常的友善,這是一個關於守時的公平性問題。

    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!
  • LEO 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~~~~
