San Lorenzo de El EscorialThe guide was updated:
El Escorial was built on the idea of maintaining symmetry and austerity, while also showing the power of the crown of Spain. It has many noteworthy sights, such as the servants' quarters, the Queen’s quarters, the Infante’s (or Upper) house, and the Prince’s (or Lower) house. If you have enough time in Madrid, consider El Escorial as a day trip.
