used as a gataway for King Carlos and his wife Maria Luisa of Parma this is truly a doll house hunting pavillion decorated in french style. surrounded by almost 500.000 sq meters of parks, waterfalls and gardens, highlights even more the beauty of the El Escorial area. One can see the Monastery from afar which makes it a wonderful photo... More

This built as a summer getaway home by the Infante Gabriel in 1771 and should be included as part of your visit to El Escorial. . Once you are done in the monastery, walk down the hill back towards the station & within 5 minutes you will see the entrance on the right. There are no ticket sales on site... More

Beautiful gardens! Took us a while to find it and then some time to find the guide. All it is is the bungalow of the price, that to modernized recently, but if you have time to spend at the gardens surrounding it, it is worth a visit.

This 18th century palace was a residence of the Spanish Royal family and was built by a prince, hence its name, as a place to rest and entertain himself. Although built by the same architect that designed the Prado Museum, it's not a particularly attractive building and the interiors aren't fabulous either. It's somewhat ignored by tourists and even by... More

This is a house built by a Spanish prince overlooking the monastery at El Escorial. The house is not much to write home about, but the gardens are one of my favourite places on earth, and you can tour the gardens for free. Thousands of visitors go to El Escorial every day, but few go to La Casita. It is... More
