Description

After beating the French in the Battle of Saint Quentin, San Lorenzo de El Escorial was built in the 16th century. King Felipe II commissioned the monastery as a testament to Spain's devout Catholic faith. The majestic basilica, the marble Pantheon of los Reyes, and the Patio de las Reyes are among the highlights of the enormous complex.
