San Lorenzo Del Escorial

San Lorenzo de El Escorial, also known as El Escorial de Arriba, is an attractive town in Madrid, Spain. It is home to the Monastery of El Escorial, which was made a World Heritage Site in 1984. The monastery is a hugely popular tourist attraction and people come from all over the world to see it – but in San Lorenzo de El Escorial you have a front-row seat. You can spend well over a day taking in everything it has to offer, from its gardens constructed by Philip II to its absolutely beautiful library. The monastery also houses a marble mausoleum where almost every king of Spain since Charles I was buried. Overall the complex is a true marvel of both history and culture, and well worth seeing.

Down in San Lorenzo de El Escorial itself, there are parks and golf courses available for those who enjoy outdoor activities. Public transport is also on hand to take visitors on day trips to the city of Madrid, which is less than an hour away. Tourists also often take some time out to visit the Valley of the Fallen, a memorial containing the world’s largest free standing cross.
