Thoroughly enjoyed this tour.It was pouring with rain but it didn't dampen our spirits too much.The monastery was the first stop and on the way we were able to see the huge cross that dominates the Valley of the Fallen.The. Monastery is a huge beautiful building.One third is a working monastery and another third is a private school.The guide explained the main features of the main rooms of the former palace.The bus parks in the main bus station so you can have a quick pit stop on the way back as there is a bakery nearby if you need to grab a snack.On to the valley of the Fallen.
Cross shrouded in cloud-it was an awful day like I said.
Awesome building.Definitelty makes you think, but so glad to see it.Ive read about it in books and novels but to see it in the flesh was amazing.

Well worthwhile. All went like clockwork. Franco's tomb was chillingly awesome and the valley had the same dark presence that pervades Glencoe.

Recommended, but with some caveats. Two world class sights, very important in understanding Spanish history. El Escorial is huge, but you really only see the key sights, and there is not time to wander on your own. Regardless of your opinions on Franco, how and why it was built etc, the Valley of the Fallen Basilica and monument is extraordinary sight; Tour guide was doing it in three languages - Spanish, English, Italian - with a big group, so the actual communication side of it was a little weak - quite often the group did not really know where to go and what to do. It's an efficient way of seeing these two sights, which I think is difficult by public transport (Valley of the Fallen especially).

We picked a foul late March day - raining hard at El Escorial, snowing at the Valley of Fallen - but I am glad we went, whatever reservations I may have had about the tour.
