San Lorenzo El Escorial is the famed mauseluem of the Spanish Monarchs located 45 kilometers northwest of Spain. It is also a palace and a monastery complex.

I arrived at this place at around 830 am (winter in Spain) and behold! What a lovely sunrise.

El Escorial is a common destination of daytrips from Madrid. By the way, the complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
