EL ESCORIAL: Declared Human Heritage, it is a symbol of the Spanish Power in the XVI century and commemorates the San Quintin`s Battle. It is also a mausoleum for Charles V. Due to the symmetry and balance of the construction, according to the humanist Renaissance style, it was considered the eighth wonder of the world for a long period of time. The visit includes the Hapsburgs Palace, the Kings and Princes Mausoleum, the Chapter Houses, the Architecture Room, the Weapons Room, the Library and the Basilica.
BASILICA OF THE VALLEY: This enormous monument built between 1940 and 1959, is located 9 km away from El Escorial. It is a Basilica excavated in the mountain at 1350 m of altitude above sea level where an impressive 150 m high cross places itself over the magnificent nature reserve of Madrid mountain range. There, after the explanations of our guide from the outside, customers will have free time to admire the wonderful views of the Sierra de Madrid and take pictures.
