Tour details

Convenient tour from Madrid to El Escorial on a comfortable bus with an official guide to visit El Escorial and its imposing Royal Monastery declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, as well as the monumental site of the Valley of the Fallen located a few kilometers away in another beautiful enclave in the mountains of Madrid.

After about an hour of travel enjoying the scenery that gives us the Sierra de Madrid, we will start our tour to El Escorial with a guided visit of the Royal Monastery of El Escorial, that Philip II ordered to be built as a Royal Residence and Pantheon.

Symbol of the greatness of the Spanish Empire, the palace-monastery complex is an impressive construction of great artistic and historical value that houses jewels such as the Basilica, the Pantheon with the tombs of almost all the Kings of Spain since the Emperor Charles V, the Royal Library or the palatial quarters occupied by the various reigning dynasties.

After the guided tour to El Escorial, we will continue our route to the nearby Cuelgamuros’ Valley or Valley of the Fallen where the highest Christian cross in the world (150 meters) announces the location of the Valley of the Fallen, an extraordinary and controversial architectural work erected in honor of the fallen in the Civil War that gave way to a long period of dictatorship in Spain. 

We will visit the interior of the basilica carved into the rock and will admire the grandeur of the monumental complex and the natural scenery that hosts it, a protected natural area of great ecological value and unique scenic beauty.
