Segovia

Segovia is a World Heritage City that’s absolutely worth visiting. Take a look at this video to get ready for our trip to this historically rich Spanish city.

El Escorial

The Royal site of San Lorenzo del Escorial, an UNESCO world heritage site, is a historical residence of the King of Spain. The history of El Escorial Madrid is an interesting one, partly because of the fact that it was constructed during the time that Spain was truly starting to emerge as the world’s premier empire of the day. Built at the end of the 16th century, the Escorial Monastery stands in an exceptionally beautiful site at the foothills of the Sierra de Guadarrama, north of Madrid. It was the retreat of a mystic king, Philip II, and became in the last years of his reign the center of the greatest political power of the time.
