This is the most exclusive excursion from Madrid to El Escorial by bus and accompanying 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 kilometres away, in another beautiful enclave of the Sierra Madrileña.

We will start our tour to El Escorial with a guided visit of the Royal Monastery of El Escorial. Symbol of the greatness of the Spanish Empire is an impressive construction of great artistic and historical value that houses jewels such as the Basilica, the Royal Library, the Pantheon with the tombs of almost all the Kings of Spain since Emperor Charles V or the palace buildings that occupied the different reigning dynasties.

After the guided tour to El Escorial we will have a free time to have a lunch before continuing the route to the nearby Valle de Cuelgamuros 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 honour 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 its singular beauty in terms of architecture and landscapes.

Recomendable

★★★★ Reviewed by Maribel on 2018-12-05
Una excursión recomendable. Arancha, nuestra guía, nos hizo disfrutar con sus explicaciones. Como algo negativo: no nos gustó que aprovecharán nuestro viaje para primero dejar a otros turistas en el centro comercial de las rozas porque eso nos hizo perder más tiempo. Por lo demás muy bien.

Good but a little bit quick

★★★★★ Reviewed by Fernando on 2018-10-09
The trip was good with a lot of explanations and an amazing and very helpful guide, the only tip is that the trip should be 1 hour longer in order for us to have more time to expend on free time, my greets to Alberto Figueroa

★★★★ Reviewed by Daniel on 2018-03-31
El viaje per se te da el tiempo justo (quizá demasiado) para ver el Escorial y el Valle de los Caídos. Ahora bien, resulta imprescindible la gran labor de guía hecha por Viviana, una chica preparadísima y muy maja que hizo cuanto pudo para ofrecernos una experiencia provechosa, a pesar de que su empresa no le daba ningún tipo de facilidades y le ponía todo tipo de “piedras” por el camino. En suma, un gran tour gracias a su magnífica capacidad expositiva y a la abnegación de Viviana. Saludos desde Barcelona ^^
