Free Tour Mysteries and Legends in San Lorenzo del Escorial

Did you know that, for a long time, the monastery of El Escorial was thought to be a gateway to hell?

Description of the experience

Legend has it that this monument, declared a World Heritage Site, was built at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama because this place was considered a gateway to the abode of the devil. Thus, the sacred place was intended precisely to block the entrance to the underworld? Or was there, perhaps, a more complex hidden interest?

This and other mysteries (such as the black dog that tormented the rest of Philip II) will be revealed in our Free Tour of San Lorenzo del Escorial, which will start at the Plaza de la Constitución and will have a circular route through the darker side of the town.

Ribera del Duero Wineries Tour

Madrid

Madrid

As early as the 12th century, the monks of Cluny were growing grapes on the banks of the Duero River to produce wine. The Ribera del Duero is in the heart of Castilla-León, the old land of castles. The subsoil of almost all the villages is practically hollow, with caves dug to store the wine, as they guarantee perfect conditions of humidity and temperature. Although many cellars have fallen into disuse, some have been recovered for visits or for wine production. Visiting an old wine cellar that has been in operation for centuries and drinking a glass of wine there is an unforgettable experience.

Wine Tasting Initiation Course

Madrid

Madrid

Maybe you have never taken an introductory wine tasting course, but surely you have said at some point: I don't understand wine, I only know if I like a wine or not... Yes, well, congratulations, you are already half way to understanding wine. Because understanding wine does not mean knowing the name of every winemaker of the more than 4,000 wineries in Spain. Understanding wine means knowing what you like, knowing how to define why you like it and what factors make you like it. Our sommeliers select very different wines from different Appellations of origin so that the tasting is an experience where you can contrast, learn and have a good time.
