Located in the heart of the Sierra de Guadarrama, San Lorenzo de El Escorial was a royal summer residence halfway between Madrid and La Granja de San Ildefonso. Thanks to this, it has a large number of monuments of that time, which today has been converted giving rise to a city full of charm, cultural atmosphere and leisure options.
Main highlight of the place is the Monastery and Royal Site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984.
Address:The town is located 60 km northwest through A-6 highway. You can travel to El Escorial by RENFE train (C3 Line), departing from main Madrid central stations, or by bus, grabbing line 661 from Moncloa.
