Description
Royal Monastery of El Escorial
Visit one of the Eight Wonders of the World, an imposing 16th Century edifice. King Phillip II ordered the construction of the Royal Monastery of El Escorial and it owes most of its design to its main architect, Juan Herrera. Many of the best artisans of that period contributed to its construction and the Monastery houses the Mausoleum of the Spanish Monarchs.

El Escorial, a symbol of the Spanish power in the XVI century that commemorates the battle of St. Quentin. It is also a mausoleum for Charles V. Due to the symmetry and balance of its construction, according to the humanist Renaissance style, for years it had been considered the eighth wonder of the world. The visit includes the Habsburg Palace, the Kings and Princes Mausoleum, the Chapter House and the Basilica.
