10am – San Lorenzo del Escorial Tour (4h)
In this four-hour tour we will visit San Lorenzo de El Escorial and the Monastery of El Escorial, one of the most emblematic royal places in Madrid.
This monastery was built in the XVI century and it was conceived as a palace, a church, a library and a convent, as well as a place to bury the different Spanish kings. We will visit its wonderful basilica and we will also take a nice promenade in the Jardín de los Frailes (the Friar’s Garden).
Afterwards, we will have a relaxing walk around the San Lorenzo de El Escorial villa, as well as the different palaces and buildings that form the old town of the city.
Before coming back to Madrid, we will finish our visit with what is known as ‘Casita de Arriba’ gardens, a small Royal Palace that is, still these days, one of the royal family’s palaces.
