Let me take you from Madrid to El Escorial and back in a full day tour!
The Royal Site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, commonly known as El Escorial, is a historical residence of the King of Spain, built by Filips II. It is situated in the town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, about 45 kilometers (28 miles) northwest of Madrid. It is one of the Spanish royal sites and has functioned as a monastery, basilica, royal palace, pantheon, library, museum, university and hospital. As you see, a lot of functions and a lot of history to discover! On this day trip tour of 6 hours I'll take you from Madrid to El Escorial and back in a private rental car.
I'll pick you up at a location of your preference and drive you in a rental car to El Escorial. On site we'll visit El Escorial profoundly (the entrance fee of this is not included in the tour). On top of that we can visit the city San Lorenzo de El Escorial and its main highlights. After our visit, I'll drive you back to Madrid and we'll say goodbye at a location of your preference.
