    Enjoy a guided tour through the Royal Monastery of El Escorial, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Built in the 15th century, it is a symbol of the power of the government at the time. See the impressive Royal Mausoleum and the story behind the 21 years it took to build the site. Of Renaissance style, you will marvel at the building symmetry. Listen to your guide explanations as you walk along the site visiting the Habsburg’s Palace, the Chapter House or the Basilica and the remarkable library.

    Board your bus again at the end of the guided tour for a short drive to the Valley of the Fallen. The site is located 9km away from El Escorial, in Sierra de Guadarrama. You will be able to see it from far away thanks to the monumental cross, built above the site. The monument is an underground church built into the mountain. The same is topped by the World’s Largest Cross, which can be seen from miles away.

    In the afternoon, we will discover Segovia, a small city that will surprise us from the moment we get off the bus.

    The walking tour will begin at the Alcazar of Segovia, one of the most famous and well-preserved medieval castles in the world. The Alcazar probably reminds you of some Disney castles, as its exterior architecture served as inspiration for some of Walt Disney's films, such as Cinderella's Castle or the Queen's Castle in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    After the visit to the Alcazar, we will walk up to the Plaza Mayor, where we will find different monuments that will impress us, such as the Town Hall, the Juan Bravo Theatre and the Cathedral of Segovia, where we will have a complete guided tour of its interior. At the end of the visit to the Cathedral you will have some free time to enjoy Segovia at your leisure.

    At the appointed time, we will meet again at the Plaza Mayor. We will discover some of the city's monuments, such as the Casa de los Picos, whose façade has 617 granite peaks, or the Plaza Medina del Campo, where you will find the Church of San Martín, built in 1.117, and the Torreón de Lozoya.

    We will finish the guided tour at the Aqueduct, one of the oldest monuments in Spain. With more than 16 kilometers long, it was built over 2.000 years ago. During the visit we will discover how it was built, in which no cement was used, as well as the route that the water took to reach Segovia.
