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.
