  • Enjoy a roundtrip guided tour from Madrid to the massively spectacular Royal Monastery of El Escorial

  • See incredible murals and paintings by Titian, Rubens, van Dyck, Hieronymus Bosch, Velasquez, El Greco, and more

Explore one of Spain's most spectacular architectural treasures with a guided tour from Madrid to the monumental Royal Monastery of El Escorial. Once the seat of the Spanish crown, this royal residence is an impressive display of power.

Encircled by stunning countryside and manicured gardens, and decorated with classical art by the greatest masters, this sublime architectural and historical grandeur of a building will make your home seem puny!

The Spanish like to call it the 'Eighth Wonder of the World', and as far as buildings go, we can't argue with that statement. This astonishing relic of Spain's royal past has 11 Spanish monarchs buried on its premises, in fittingly opulent tombs of marble and gold.

Admire El Escorial's exterior and enjoy an introduction from a knowledgeable guide, before you enter by yourself and start exploring the magnificent halls and chambers. Stop and admire artworks by Titian, Rubens, van Dyck, Hieronymus Bosch, Velasquez, and El Greco – just to name a few! Don't forget to look up – the ceilings are decorated with stunningly elaborate paintings and murals.

Make the most of your chance to wander through lush gardens and grandiose rooms, before an air-conditioned coach brings you back to Madrid.
