This monastery is one of the most unique Renaissance architecture in Spain and Europe.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to visit the Friars’; Gardens which are the maximum exponent of the concept that King Philip II had of gardening, which had to provide visual beauty, as well as allowing the cultivation of vegetables and fruit. This tour offers you the chance to see the inside of both monuments and learn about their history from our professional guide.
