El Escorial & Segovia #2 – Time Travelling


October 5 @ 08:45 20:00

Standard Price: 34€
City Card Price: 29€

Discover the splendor of Spanish history, architecture, and natural beauty as you escape the bustle of Madrid for a day. Our curated day trip to El Escorial & Segovia offers an unforgettable experience, immersing you in the grandeur of royal castles, the solemnity of an historic monastery, and the enchanting ambiance of two ancient cities.

El Escorial is famed for its breathtaking monastery which houses many of the Spanish royal family, as well as one of the most beautiful secret libraries in Europe. Segovia is home to a Roman aqueduct, which gave the city its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Known as one of the best-preserved monuments on the Iberian Peninsula, the aqueduct towers at 28,5 meters tall. Additionally, the gorgeous Alcázar of Segovia is rumored to be Walt Disney’s inspiration for the Cinderella castle!

You can either book now at the bottom of this page or in our office on Calle Gran Vía 33, 8D. If you have any questions please get in touch with us at [email protected].
