GARDENS OF EL ESCORIAL, San Lorenzo, Spain
©Laura Quick
El Escorial is a historical residence of the Kings of Spain, in the town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, about 45 km (28 mi) northwest of Madrid, Spain. It is one of the Spanish royal sites and functions as a monastery, royal palace, museum, and school. It is a bleak, semi-forested, wind-swept place that owes its name to nearby piles of slag or tailings, called scoria, the detritus of long-played-out iron mines in the Guadarrama.
