Welcome to the Spanish Monarchy of King Philip II. This is Spain at the height of its imperial power in its Golden Era. Begin your travel with King Philip’s Majestic Palace in the outskirts of Madrid, when you travel to stately San Lorenzo del Escorial, and tour Kings Philip’s private Monastery and Palace home to an impressive art and fresco collection that rivals the Vatican’s.

Your tour also takes you to three of Spain’s most important medieval cities: Avila surrounded by one of the best preserved roman walls in Europe, Salamanca home to one of Western World’s oldest and finest Universities, and Segovia home of the Alcazar, Spain’s most famous and enchanting medieval Castle.

In Segovia you’ll also admire the largest and best preserved Roman Aqueducts in Europe. From Segovia, you’ll travel to historic Pedraza a jewel of a town north of the city, and on the outskirts of the city, you’ll visit the sumptuous La Granja de San Ildefonso, a magnificent 15th century Palace.
