THE HEART OF SPAIN
Castile is home to some of the most beautiful and monumental cities in Europa. We visit two of the most famous; Segovia & Ávila, along with Felipe II’s immense monastery and residence El Escorial. Sights include the magnificent Roman aqueduct in Segovia and the impressive city walls of the fortified city of Ávila. Rivalling the spectacle of these cities are the landscapes, ranging from the endless horizons of the plains of Castile to the dramatic beauty of the Sierra de Gredos mountains as we head towards El Escorial and Madrid.
