El Escorial & Valley of the Fallen tour

Discover two important places in the heart of Spain

 

This is a great tour for two main reasons: 1- you can see the highlights of both places on a half-day excursion, and 2- it is quite difficult to get to the Valley of the Fallen (Valle de los Caidos) if you wanted to do it on your own.  With this tour, you get to spend the ideal time in each place, your own driver-guide, and the convenience of being picked-up, returned, and transported in a brand new minivan to and from the sights.


 

After picking you up from your hotel in Madrid, we will make our way to El Escorial to visit The Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo El Real built by King Philip the 2nd.  The Renaissance complex combines a palace and monastery, and features a wonderful collection of art. We will tour the complex, including the Pantheon of Kings and basilica, and hear the history of Spain as we wander this great complex.

 

Onto the Valle de Los Caidos (Valley of the Fallen), and the grand monument for Spain's civil war casualties. It is said that thousands of political prisoners built the monument through forced labour during the dictatorship years of General Franco between 1940-1959. We will discover the inside of the basilica and admire a spectacular valley landscape around this massive monument which is located 9.5 kilometers (6 miles) to the north of El Escorial.

 

After our visit we will return you safely and in comfort to your hotel, city, or the airport.

 

We hope you can join us for an interesting day from Madrid.  You can use the form on the right to contact us now about availability.
