In 45 minutes we drive from Madrid to the Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial. Inside you can see the Royal Pantheon, the Basilic and the Library of Philip II as well as its beautiful gardens in a visit of approximately 2 hours.
If you take the option of full day (8 hours) we will stop before in the Monument of the Fallen Valley. The basilica contains the remains of those killed in the Spanish Civil War and the tomb of the Dictador Francisco Franco.
At the end of both visits, we will eat in some of its exquisite local restaurants and come back to Madrid.
