Discover at your own leisure one of the towns with most history in Spain. Take a stroll along its streets and its monastery in the company of your exclusive guide.


Would you like to explore one of the Royal Places in Spain at your own pace? Well, thanks to El Escorial Private Tour you will be able to visit the municipality of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, its monastery and everything you desire.

There will be an exclusive Spanish speaking guide on hand for you and your party who will happily tell you all there is to tell about the history of this beautiful place. Did you know for example that the town emerged because of its monastery and not the other way around? Or that San Lorenzo de El Escorial belonged to the neighbouring municipality of El Escorial? When it was declared independent, this town kept hold of the most important buildings of the Royal Site within its municipality. 

If you prefer, you may also visit Valle de los Caídos (Valley of the Fallen) also located in the municipality of San Lorenzo de El Escorial and find out all about the horrible history of the Civil War. The building itself is without a doubt amazing unlike its tragic origins. Delve into the most recent history of our country so as not to make the same mistakes. 

On the El Escorial Private Tour feel free to wander around this beautiful town, part of Cuenca del Guadarrama, visit its majestic monastery as well as other landmarks belonging to the Royal Site like the Casita del Príncipe (Small Prince´s house) or the Casita del Infante (Small House of the Infant). What are you waiting for to come and discover this National Heritage Site described as the eighth wonder of the world?
