The historic Philip II train is back on track soon

One of the most popular historic trains in Madrid, the train of Philip II, returns to the tracks. A journey into the past century on this train reveals to passengers the history and monumental wealth of the El Escorial area. This time travel will resume again starting Saturday 25 September from the station Estación de Príncipe Pío.

The route can be completed depending on the package chosen: a self-guided tour or a guided tour of the Real Monasterio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial. It is also possible to choose a theatrical visit to the village and monastery in order to dive deeper into a past life. It is reported that the first tickets will be on sale in a special promotion with a 20% discount.

The train consists of a head carriage and four original carriages of the early 20th century. The trip along the tracks with a length of about 60 kilometers will last one hour. The train will run every weekend and holidays: departure at 10:20 and return at 17:25. Schedules may vary depending on the season.
