Spanish contemporary history in beatiful mountain surroundingsReviewed by: mnyy, February 2014
The monastery is breathtaking, and the Valley of the Fallen (which I had never heard of before going there) is a unique sight. Well worth it.Reviewed by: Raymond P, USA, January 2014
It was very good, except too little time on each spot inside the monastery, we'd to move on to the next spot after the guide finished the introduction on that spot. so I think this is the different between joining local tour or self touring. This is your choice. So I deduct one star from the ratingReviewed by: Maryland, February 2014
Well organised tour. It would be nice if we had more time in The Valley of the Fallen, but nevertheless the visit was impressive.Reviewed by: Ronald S, January 2014
Nothing great to see in this trip. If you have extra time, make a visit.Reviewed by: Ravi C, March 2014
