Magnificent views of El Escorial (Madrid) from the mountains

Last weedend I went to visit El Escorial, in the north of Madrid (60-70 kms), where the famous monastery is. These pictures were taken from he mountains behind it.































A coffee in a bar near by.





I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Wow, nice views!
I once visited this magnificant building-complex. I think on 'ground level' it's even more impressive.
