What you can expect

Let me take you on a journey through the history in San Lorenzo de Escorial!

Let's start by exploring the must-see Royal Site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, commonly known as El Escorial, a historical residence of the King of Spain. Discover why it's considered the eighth wonder of the world and enjoy the view of gorgeous pine forests that make up the natural surroundings.

While we wander through the rooms and curtails of this World Heritage site, I'll tell you all about the Spanish history and of course the famous king, Philip II!

We won't only enjoy historical sights; I'll also take you inside the stunning library and we'll see marvelous art pieces from renowned artists such as Bosch and El Greco.

Of course, I'll also treat you to a tapa and drink in one of the best local spots in town.

If you'd like to customize anything, please feel free to let me know!

Looking forward to meeting you!
