HERE'S A LITTLE SNEAK PEEK
WHAT TO EXPLORE IN SAN LORENZO DE EL ESCORIAL
Royal Seat of San Lorenzo de El Escorial
Built during 1563 and 1584, the Royal Seat of San Lorenzo de El Escorial or Monastery of El Escorial is the most famous monument in town. It was commissioned by King Philip II, and its sheer size is overwhelming to look at. The interior is richly decorated not only with intricate ceilings and lush furnishings but also with paintings by several renowned Italian and Spanish artists like El Greco, Luca Giordano and Claudio Coello. Visiting this place is a must when exploring El Escorial.
The Chair of Philip II
Located within La Herrería, The Chair of Philip II is one of the top attractions in El Escorial. The chair and stairs were carved into the rock and give you a spectacular view over the town and the surrounding lush nature. Due to this privileged view, this is also said to be the place where King Philip II came to appreciate the construction of the Monastery. Reaching the Chair of Philip II by foot isn’t easy, so if you’re taking kids or don’t want to walk all the way there, book a tuk tuk tour. With the Historic Escorial tour, you’ll not only reach this place comfortably but also explore other places of great historic importance in El Escorial.
Viewpoint of Abantos
Just like the Chair of Philip II, the Viewpoint of Abantos will welcome you with an astonishing panoramic view over the Monastery of El Escorial and all the town. However, since the viewpoint is located on the opposite side of El Escorial, you’ll see the enormous monastery from a different perspective. Some even say that this is the best place to appreciate the grandiosity of the monument. If you want to visit the Viewpoint of Abantos but don’t want to walk all the way there, then book the Panoramic Escorial tuk tuk tour. Besides travelling in comfort, you’ll also see other historic monuments and tourist attractions always accompanied by a driver/guide.

Lisbon is one of most beautiful cities of Europe, I live in Lisbon for a while now, but only after this Tuk Tuk tour I have been able to access the most amazing hidden places of the city. You will never get there if you take a bus or tram.
