Wat je gaat doen

Minimum 2 People, for 1 person booking, please ask before and I'll check if there are more people coming.

We will start the day with a special 2-hour Hiking in a hidden place 1400 meters (4500Feet) high, surrounded by history: The "Valley of the Fallen". During the hike, we will be able to see one of the biggest cross in the world (150 meters high), a memorial to all combatants fallen during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). We will be able to see the monument from a unique perspective sitting on a Mountain Top that few locals know. I'll explain the monument’s background history and the local’s different opinions about it as well. From this place, we will be able to take stunning pictures and admire the amazing views and sometimes we will be able to spot some vultures from close!. The Hike is easy-medium level, with several steps up and down, so anyone with a good walking condition will be able to do it.

Just after the hike, lunch will be waiting for us inside a Historic Monastery still running. Sometimes you can see the Monks walking around with their capes…

During the afternoon, we will visit the crypt-cave inside the fallen Valley Mountain and head back to El Escorial train station, where the tour will finish. If you wish to visit the town (totally recommended) you can do it on your own, I'll be glad to give you some tips.
Other things to note
Guests should bring sunscreen if needed and adequate clothing (comfortable for hiking and adequate for the day's climate)

An excellent day trip full of local history and magnificent sites I must admit the idea of spending 3 hours hiking was rather daunting, but as it turned out, definitely not so. It is Thanks to Marcos and Jana. The hiking was full of historical views, the magnificent: Valley of the Fallen. We saw the biggest cross of the world a memorial to all combatants during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). All the monuments background was described very well. And to hear it from a local gave it a different perspective altogether and made it interesting. What was particularly beautiful was that the monuments were on mountain tops. I wish I could keep looking at the breathtaking views forever. After hiking, we had an amazing lunch in this monastery which too has historic significance. Yes, we did see some Monks. The Jana and Marcos are fantastic and took great care. We got bottled water and some snacks too. In all very satisfying journey. I will come back next spring with my friends again.

Thank you Marcos for unexpected and surprising discoveries, secret paths, landscapes between land and breathtaking mountains, pleasant rhythm, delicious stopovers, amusing historical anecdotes, and interesting comments about the fauna and flora of El Escorial!! The format of the experience (hike for half a day) is perfect if you want to have some time to discover the city in the afternoon. Marcos is a great guide and really knows his way around. He showed us great spots and also gave us advice on what to do in Madrid. At the end of the experience we had a moment of exceptional sharing in a beautiful setting: inside a Historic Monastery, an interesting place and wonderful surroundings near the monastery. It is very peaceful and one can sit there for a while with no problem. The opportunity for great photography is another reason for this stop and it will be well worth it. Don't miss out this trip if you love nature and energetic travelling.

We had a fantastic experience in El Escorial… Our guide, Marcos, was the sweetest person, very knowledgable, and he spoke English very well. He made us feel comfortable at all times, being the most helpful, kind and patient guide during the 7 hours that we were sharing the experience, and through our visit to different monuments. He gave us the time we wanted to capture with our cameras all the magic that our eyes were seeing. The landscapes that you can see are truly beautiful! When we thought that the day couldn’t be better, we receive an amazing surprise at the end of the journey: a delicious lunch inside a Historic Monastery!! I highly recommend this tour, since everything happened as expected, and Marcos was willing to accommodate to all our requests. I specially suggest the experience to nature lovers like us. It is also an interior trip that I highly advise. Don't hesitate to reach him, extremely worth it!
