  • No doubt the so fantastic views that referred to from this site. If the day is clear view you get to Madrid. Very nice!

  • Magnificent views of the monastery and the sierra. You can access walk through several routes but ntambien be interns arrive by car to the bottom of 'chair' (although the parking area is small)

  • On nice days there are too many people, but is a pleasant walk to see the monastery from liked to see Felipe II. It is small and if there are many people you take to achieve access. Does not take much to go through it from the chapel below.

  • Nice place for short walks in a quiet nature place. Also a fantastic Boulder Paradise with a while bunch of possibilities.
  • If you have ever wondered what it was like to be a king with a whole kingdom, then take the hike (or you can drive) up to La Silla de Felipe II. It gives you a beautiful view of El Monasterio del Escorial. It must have been something to view the construction over the 25 years that it took to build the monastery. Definitely worth the trip to see the Silla if you can get there!
  • It's a nice spot to eat at and a wonderful sightseer
  • Beautiful place, great granite bouldering.
  • Lots of walks around Escorial Monastery area. Local restaurant too
