What to Expect
Enjoy a half-day history tour of the royal monastery at El Escorial and the basilica of the Valley of the Fallen, and then save money at dozens of brand name shops at the Las Rozas Chic Outlet Shopping Village.

Depart the city center for a tour of El Escorial, symbol of Spanish power in the 16th century, and considered by many to be the 8th wonder of the world due to the symmetry and harmony of its neo-Renaissance structure. Learn about the Battle of St. Quentin that the site commemorates, and see the mausoleum of Charles V, Habsburg Palace, Chapter House, and Basilica.

The Basilica of the Valley of the Fallen is located 9 kilometers away from El Escorial, and was built between 1940 and 1959 to honor the fallen of the Spanish Civil War. Carved into the mountainside at an altitude 1,350 meters, it’s the 150-meter high cross that impresses, along with magnificent views of the nature reserve of Madrid's mountain range.

Then, in the afternoon, go to the Las Rozas Chic Outlet Shopping Village, located approximately 30 minutes from the center of Madrid by express coach. Shop at more than 100 national and international fashion boutiques, and enjoy discounts of up to 60% on labels such as Calvin Klein Jeans, Camper, Custo Barcelona, Lacoste, La Perla, L’Occitaine, and Hugo Boss.

Take time out in the restaurants and cafés, and let the little ones run around in the playground area. Enjoy tax-free shopping for non EU citizens, gift cards, and 24-hour surveillance.
