Mr. Satt will explain you the exciting history of Toledo while admiring from the surrounding mountains the wonderful landscape that Toledo offers. He will also guide you through significant monuments such as the Toledo Cathedral of Santa Maria and the Holy Eucharist, the Sephardic Museum, Church of San Ildefonso and an authentic Jewish cave which will help you to understand perfectly the Roman, Visigothic, Arabic, Jewish and Christian Toledo. The art of painting is represented by the Burial of the Count of Orgaz, one of the best 10 paintings of universal art, full of symbols, mysteries and secrets that our official guide will reveal only to you.
The Monastery of San Lorenzo del Escorial represents a valuable testimony of the personality of Philip II, King of Spain from 1556 to 1598 and all times greatest collector of paintings. His life's work was the Monastery of El Escorial. Our private tour will provide essential information about the complex personality of the most powerful monarch of second half of XVI century, a tireless worker, who took decisions encouraged by his absolute power or with the hope to be assisted by the Divine Providence. One of the fundamental parts of this private tour, to understand fully Phillip II, lies on the impressive Royal Library. However, the strong point of this private tour is the Royal Pantheon, where Mr. Satt will unveil the most transcendental events of the Kings of Spain, from Charles I to Alphonse XIII.
