I visited this place with my friends and we loved it. Neoclassical style, beautiful graden and amazing view. It’s also near the Renaissance monastery-palace of El Escorial.

The walk to the Casita de Infante is about a 30 minutes. Don't expect too much. We went around the end of Apr. There were large Magnolia trees, climbing roses and other perennial plants, however they have not in bloomed yet. If you visit in May it would probably look differently. There was no cost to go in. It a good place of rest or contemplation with out large tourist crowds.

Lovely little garden around the small house built for Infante of Spain in XVIII century. It is free of charge, a short walk from the Monastery of El Escorial. The view of the monastery is simply stunning. The price for the entrance to the house is 3€ and it has to be purchased at El Escorial. We thought it is a bit overpriced and we did not go in.

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 op. would not pass it. If you walk from the train station you may go up to the El Escorial by walking throught the park and visit the Casita del Principe first. only advice is: take a full day to enjoy the sights. you wont regret it
