Going to Madrid............1st time since 1979........new some advice

Jump to last reply

My son and I are going on a high school trip and will be in italy, france, monaco, and then spain. Have taken him to Barcelona, but now we will be going and staying in madrid for several days at the Westin Palace. I stayed here as a kid, but need to know about some of the excusions day trips available. We want a guided tour, and since my family is from Spain (most live in Malaga and Barcelona), I wanted to take my son to El Escorial and of course "The valley of the fallen". Does anyone know if the Valley of the fallen is open yet? Since my family since the 30's were in the Guardia Civil, I have told my son our history....also want to take him to some other sidetrips. We will be in Madrid for 3 days and then will take the AVE to Malaga.

I would really appreciate any ideas!!
