Introduction

ESCORIAL:
The Royal Monastery of El Escorial is an imposing 16th Century building. Phillip II ordered its construction and its main architect was Juan Herrera to whom it owed most of its design and building. Many of the best artisans of that period also took part in the process. The Monastery also houses the Mausoleum of the Spanish Monarchs, and it is considered as one of the Eight Wonders of the World.

VALLE DE LOS CAIDOS 

The Valley of the Fallen (Valle de los Caídos) is located about 8 miles north of El Escorial. The complex was built between 1940 and 1958 and is a monument intended to commemorate all those who died on both sides during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). About 40,000 Nationalist and Republican soldiers are buried here.

However, the Valley of the Fallen is inevitably associated with Franco's regime since the late General is buried inside the basilica and he was the one who ordered its construction. Nevertheless, it is an impressive place and it was visited by about 450,000 people in 2005.

SEGOVIA:

Segovia, the old quarter of which, along with its Roman aqueduct, are World Heritage Sites. Moreover,  many Romanesque churches, the Cathedral and Fortress go to form this magnificent landscape that presides over this part of Castile.

Its modern Parador Hotel is one of the best places for the visitor to savour the city's most traditional dish: roast suckling pig. Moreover, Segovia is an excellent starting point to tour the province and visit to the La Granja Palace, as well as the Gorges of the Duratón River Nature Reserve, among other attractions.
