We will take you to the three most famous historical sites to discover the historic soul of Spain.
This city was declared as a world heritage by UNESCO in 1986 due to the presence of vast cultural heritage and monuments. It is also known as The City of Three Cultures because of the influence of Christian, Jewish and Muslim occupants and the architecture here also reflects these multiple civilizations from the past. There are palaces, churches, synagogues, and mosques which offers a fascinating look back in the time. This old town is a heaven for those who are interested in the ancient history and civilization of Spain.SEGOVIA Segovia is another historical pearl located in the center of Spain featuring rich history and culture. There are numerous churches, Roman aqueduct, an incredible cathedral and an impressive castle collectively making it another UNESCO’s world heritage site. There are many fairytales and myths surrounding the city. The famous ancient castle Alcazar de Segovia is specifically the greatest tourist attraction due to its magnificent appearance. This majestic castle also inspired Walt Disney to create similar castles in its animated classics including Caldarella and Snow White. All these wondrous monuments and palaces of Segovia are worth visiting during your stay in Spain. ESCORIAL Escorial is a remarkable architectural masterpiece created during the 15th century. This historical monastery is located in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, a town present in the northwest of Madrid. This historical building is the burial place of many important kings of Spain and even plays an important role in Spanish royal life. The construction of this magnificent monastery was started in 1563 by King Phillip II, who wanted to create a funerary monument for his father Charles V. But the kind also wanted to create a quite complex structure including a monastery and a palace and by the end of its construction, it not only included these but also a church and a library. This Royal site presents a refreshing mix of history and architect and one of the most visited landmarks in Spain.
