What to expect

The Monastery of El Escorial was built under the reign of the powerful King Philip II as a residence for the Spanish kings. Used also as a monastery and pantheon for the royal family, it became a symbol of the great power of the Spanish empire on the time. The monument was declared of artistic and historic interest, and inscribed in the Unesco World Heritage Sites list. The tour include the visit to the Monastery, the Cloister of the Four Evangelists, the Palace of Philip II, the Pantheons of the Royal Family, the Chapterhouses, and the Basilica.

The Valley of the Fallen is a monument built as a memorial of those who died during the Spanish Civil War in 1936. Located in a beautiful valley in the Mountains of Guadarrama, this impressive work has a colossal cross over 150 m high. Here you will also see the Basilica and Crypt carved into hard rock under the mountain. This tour includes the entrance to the Valley and the visit inside the Basilica.

Get back on board and continue your journey to Toledo. We will start the tour in Toledo with a panoramic walking tour of the city. We will stroll in the old quarters to visit the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, and admire the facade of the impressive Primate Cathedral, the old Palace of Justice and the City Hall. We’ll continue our walk through the old Jewish quarter with its narrow streets to visit the Church of St. Tomé, where you will see the very famous painting of El Greco “The Burial of Count Orgaz”, the old Synagogue of Santa María La Blanca, which remains a symbol of the coexistence of the “Three Cultures", and Monastery of San Juan de los Reyes.

We’ll also visit a typical factory of Damasquino, the well-known handicraft art of the city of Toledo.
