Madrid city guide

Madrid - Day trips from Madrid (PDF Chapter)

8th Edition Jan 2016

Want to escape the city? This chapter includes the very best excursions from Madrid and they can each be completed in a day. Must-sees include San Lorenzo de El Escorial and Toledo.

  • San Lorenzo de El Escorial, one of Spain’s grandest monuments, this Unesco World Heritage-listed palace-monastery complex combines a cool mountain setting with the imposing grandeur of imperial Spain.
  • Toledo is a beautifully sited, architecturally distinguished city with signposts to its glory days as a crossroads of civilisation
  • a Roman aqueduct, a castle that inspired Disney and a colour scheme of sandstone and warm terracotta make Segovia one of the most agreeable towns close to Madrid
  • surrounded by the finest medieval walls in Spain, Ávila is an evocative Castilian city that’s the spiritual home to the cult of Santa Teresa
  • a royal getaway down through the centuries, Aranjuez has an extraordinary palace and expansive gardens grafted onto a delightfully small-town canvas
  • home to one of the prettiest town squares in Spain, Chinchón is a world away from downtown Madrid, with fabulous food thrown in

Coverage includes: San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Toledo, Segovia, Ávila, Aranjuez and Chinchón.
