Sanctus Laurentius Scorialensis

Sanctus Laurentius Scorialensis est monasterium ordinis Sancti Hieronymi ad Matritum situm.

Philippus II rex, cuius copiae Sanctum Quintinum in Viromandia obsedentes die 10 Augusti, quo Sanctus Laurentius celebratur, anno 1557 copias Francicas vicerant, monasterium huic sancto dicatum ad victoriam commemorandam aedificari iussit. Incepta anno 1563, aedificatio finem habuit die 13 Septembris anno 1584. In inferiori basilicae parte, quae Pantheon regum nominatur, quasi omnes reges Hispaniae, a Carolo V ad Alphonsum XIII, sepulti sunt. Est quoque domus regia, ubi opera clarissimorum pictorum saeculi aurei Hispanici et bibliotheca magna asservantur. Anno 1984 in tabulas Unesco Mundi Hereditatis inscripta est.

Really worth a visit. One of the many wonderful historical places in Spain. Half a day to visit the monastery, library, church and Palace, followed by a stroll and lunch near the Ajumento. An A++ day!

The library, the altar, 2 crucifixion sculptures by Bernini and Chellini, The last supper by Titian, 2 large pictures by Bosch, and one by Patinir make it a world class museum for art lovers.

It has very nice view from any point. And also it is very easy and practical to get there. Mad the way from the train station is verry nice. The food at any restaurant is very good.

10 euros el acceso, no dejan tomar fotos sólo en los exteriores, impresionante el monasterio, pero no dejes de recorrer sus jardines externos, son preciosos, cierran a 6pm. Ve con tiempo!

La arquitectura e historia no tienen comparación, se requiere todo el día para disfrutar todo el recorrido, vale la pena sin la menor duda.
