Madrid - Royal Monastery of El Escorial - Basilica of The Valley of The Fallen - Madrid
Summary of The Day: During this tour, we will visit the Royal Monastery of El Escorial, an architectural ensemble declared a World Heritage Site, and the Valley of the Fallen, a basilica and memorial to honor those who lost their lives during the Spanish Civil War.
We will start our visit at El Escorial, a symbol of the Spanish power in the 16th century that commemorates the battle of St. Quentin. It is also a mausoleum for Charles V. Due to the symmetry and balance of its construction in the humanist Renaissance style, it had been considered the Eighth Wonder of the World. The visit includes the Habsburg Palace, the Kings and Princes Mausoleum, the Chapter House and the Basilica.
Located five miles away from El Escorial, the Valley of the Fallen monument was built between 1940 and 1959 to honor the fallen during the Spanish Civil War. The basilica is carved into the mountain at nearly 4,430 feet of altitude, where an impressive 492-foot high cross towers over the magnificent mountain range.
