Next head to Segovia and on arrival your guide will explain everything about the creation of the aqueduct by the Romans. Then continue your route through the streets of the city center, and pass through the Cathedral, continuing through the district of the Canonries, until you reach the famous Alcazar, a symbol of the art and history of Spain. Then you have free time to enjoy lunch, do some shopping or access some of the monuments on your own. Once the break is over, go to El Escorial, where you will visit the inside of its Monastery. There, under the guidance of your guide, discover the architectural complex that includes a royal palace, a basilica, a pantheon, a library, a school and a monastery.
