Full description
You will begin your day enjoying the landscape of the Madrilenian mountain range as you travel to your first stop of the day. Enjoy a guided tour of the Royal Monastery of El Escorial and discover its impressive construction, historical, artistic and architectural value of the buildings that have served as a royal residence, monastery, basilica, and pantheon. 

After you will continue on to the Valley of Cuelgamuros where the highest Christian cross in the world indicates the location of the Valley of the Fallen. Here you will find an extraordinary and controversial site of architecture, sculpture and erected engineering in honor of the fallen in the Civil War that gave way to a long period of dictatorship in Spain. You will visit the interior of the Basilica carved into the rock and admire the grandeur of the monumental complex and its unique natural beauty.

You will then be off for an adventure in Segovia that starts with a guided walking tour under the imposing and world-famous Aqueduct. Then continue on, visiting the main monuments, enclaves, and viewpoints that make Segovia an essential visit from Madrid. You will see the Plaza Mayor, the spectacular Gothic Cathedral of Santa Maria, the viewpoint of Canaleja and, of course, another of its tourist icons the Alcazar (entrance included), a unique castle with the appearance of a Disney fairytale palace where you will finish the guided tour of Segovia.
