El Escorial Day Trip

Today we took a day trip to El Escorial in mountains outside of Madrid. We visited the palace/monastery/school as well as the prince's personal house. (See my description of El Escorial in an earlier post). It had spectacular views of the mountains and we even got to see the crypt that all the kings and queens of spain are burried in/will be buried in, probably the most adorned room in the whole palace (no pictures though sadly.) They even have a room to put the bodies in to decompose a little before they go into the main chamber...kind of like a rottery, haha (i know gross).
