This day trip to the Monastery of De El Escorial includes a visit to this monument that exemplifies the power of the Habsburg Dynasty in Spain, also reflecting the rise of Humanism in 16th century Spain.
The enormous building holds within its walls a Monastery, Palace, Basilica, Pantheon and Seminary, all architecturally contained in one well designed compound that symbolizes the union between Faith and Reason, as understood in its time.
El Escorial was used during the fall season, and the site was considered the 8th wonder of the world.
