Half Day Escorial Tour

Day #3 29 May 2013 - 23 Dec 2014         $77

This combination monastery-palace-mausoleum is situated approximately one hour outside of Madrid in the foothills of the Guadarrama Mountains. This austere monastery, erected by King Philip II in 1584, was intended to be a memorial to his father, King Charles V, and to commemorate Spain´s victory at Saint Quentin in 1557. It has since become the burial place of subsequent Spanish kings and queens.

Approximate tour duration is 4 hours.

Paella Cooking Class with dinner

Day #5 01 May 2013 - 31 Dec 2014         $79

Approximate tour duration is 4 hours.
