    What to Expect
    Meet tour tour group at the designated meeting point, then enjoy a transfer by air-conditioned coach to the royal site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, situated approximately 28 miles (48 kilometers) outside the capital.

    Wander through this UNESCO World Heritage site’s sprawling complex, an area which includes a royal palace, monastery, school, and a museum. You’ll stop by El Escorial’s monastery, visit the Pantheons of the Royal Family, check out the Chapter Houses, see the Basilica, and experience the Cloister of the Four Evangelists, plus much more. You’ll also discover the history of this religious site’s founding and eventual adoption by the Spanish royal family.

    Continue the trip by visit the Valley of the Fallen, a monument built by Spanish General Francisco Franco to commemorate the bloody Spanish Civil War. Dominated by a 492-foot (150-meter) cross set among a scenic valley near the Mountains of Guadarrama, the site also includes a Basilica and a crypt carved into the rock beneath the mountainside. You’ll spend time wandering the site as you take look inside the Basilica and crypt.

    Finish the day by returning to Madrid and stepping aboard an electric-powered Segway for a city sightseeing adventure. Spend 90 minutes rolling past famous Madrid sights like the Royal Palace, Plaza Mayor, Mercado de San Miguel, Plaza de España, Cathedral of Almudena, Temple of Debod, and much more. End your excursion back at the tour operator’s offices in Madrid.
