Built at the end of the 16th century, the El Escorial Monastery dominates the beautiful landscape of Castile. A symbol of the greatness of the Spanish empire and now a World Heritage Site, its austere architecture has influenced Spanish architecture for more than half a century. Visit the Royal Palace, the Chapter House, and the Royal Pantheon—the site where many kings are interred. Continue to the Valley of the Fallen, or Valle de los Caidos, where a vast stone cross looms over the surrounding landscape and stands as a chilling memorial to Spanish fascism. The cross rises above an enormous Basilica carved into the hillside and marks the burial place of General Franco.|
