      Delve deep into Spanish history with a tour of Escorial and the Valley of the Fallen.

      Highlights
      - Visit Franco’s tomb
      - Pass through the royal residence of Escorial

      The Escorial and Valley of the Fallen are just 6 miles apart but they represent two extremes in Spanish history: the Golden Age and the dark days of the Franco dictatorship. This half-day tour will allow you to explore these fascinating sights and learn all about them.

      A symbol of Spanish power in the 16th century, construction of the Escorial Monastery was governed by reason, symmetry and balance, in accordance with the tenets of Renaissance humanism. Our visit will start at the Palace of the Bourbons, where the highlight is a fine collection of tapestries, some executed by Goya himself. Then you will pass through to the Hapsburg Palace, also known as the Palace of Philip II. These rather stark chambers were built as a royal residence for the kings of this dynasty. The next stage of the tour is a visit to the impressive Pantheon of Kings. We will also visit the Basilica itself with its façade flanked by twin towers.

      The Valley of the Fallen is the massive mausoleum ordered by Franco and carved into a mountain by prisoners between 1940 and 1959. This haunting site features an excavated basilica, a 150-metre cross and the tomb of the dictator.
