The Escorial Palace and Monastery is about 50 kilometers to the north-east of Madrid at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama Mountains. Contemporaries would call him the «eighth wonder of the world». And indeed, its size, as well as its purpose (monastery, palace, museum, burial place), is quite unusual.
