El Escorial

Today me and two friends headed up to El Escorial, a quick day trip outside of Madrid. El Escorial is one of the historical residences of the King of Spain. It is located in a beautiful little town in the mountains, an hour train ride from Madrid city center. Now although there is not much to do besides visit the beautiful and enormous monastery and residence, El Escorial is definitely worth the trip. The weather was perfect, the mountains were covered in snow, and it made for a great day. Before hopping back on the train, we even stopped into a cafe for some tapas and churros con chocolate. yumm
