Considered the “Eighth Wonder of the World” in its time, the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, built by Philip II, king of the “empire on which the sun never sets”, is now a World Heritage Site. Behind its walls you will find a summary of the History of Spain. The intensive teaching, educational and cultural work that currently takes place there brings this building to the forefront of the 21st century. Surrounding the building, Charles III, known as “the best Mayor of Madrid”, built the foundations of the town, San Lorenzo de El Escorial, as a holiday place for the people from Madrid. The events offered at the Real Coliseo de Carlos III (Royal Coliseum of Charles III) and, more recently, at the Euroforum and the Auditorio de Música Clásica (Classic Music Auditorium) are leading the cultural summer programme in the Community of Madrid. On this tour, we will plunge into two periods: we will walk through Charles III’s “Erudite” El Escorial with its iconic buildings dating back to the eighteenth century before entering the magnificent work of Philip II who chose this place to make his dream come true: “the Monastery” which is home to the Royal Burial Place, the Princes and Princesses Burial Place, the Basilica, the Library, the Palace of the Hapsburgs, the Royal School of Alfonso XII, the Monastery… all these places leave an unforgettable print on the visitor`s heart.
