El Escorial Monastery and the Valley of the Fallen from Madrid

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
Some of the problem was our own as we misread the time to arrive at the location. Luckily, we were able to exchange our tour for the same tour on the next day. The people at the travel agency were completely rude on both days. DO NOT expect to resolve any issues directly with the local vendor!

The Escorial Monastery is VERY beautiful, and the royal crypts are full of history and reverence. Too bad that you only get a cursory glance at everything as they are rushing to get everyone through.

The Valley of the Fallen is another place of great importance to the history of Spain, but it is currently under construction with scaffolding in the front that we were not made aware of prior to visiting. And again, you get to spend very little time in any of the locations as they are rushing to get you through.

We would definitely go back, but we would take our own transport and really explore both the city and the attractions. We are really glad we were able to go, but it was much more hassle than we bargained for.
