Full description
Begin the day with a drive to the town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, home to the Royal Seat of San Lorenzo de El Escorial. The stunning site consists of the historical residence of the King of Spain as well as the striking monastery of El Escorial, considered by many to be the 8th Wonder of the World.

Walk through the medieval maze-like streets of the city, and discover the merging of Arabic, Jewish, and Christian cultures at the heart of Toledo's right art heritage.
