Quick Details

Child Ages 3-6

Discover the details of the Monasterio Las Descalzas with this guided tour

We will meet our guide at the Plaza de las Descalzas, right in front of the entrance door to the Monastery and start our tour. We will go to the entrance of the Monastery of the Descalzas Reales and after an explanation of its facade and exterior, we will enter to enjoy the full guided tour inside.

We will admire such beautiful areas as the cloister, through which passes the Procession of the Holy Burial that takes place every year on Good Friday.

We will also contemplate the main staircase. Considered by many, the true jewel of the monument. On its walls we will be able to see mural paintings made in different periods and on the ceiling, an impressive painting attributed to Claudio Coello.

Throughout the visit we will also access the Tapestry Room, the Choir Room and find Plateresque doors, countless works of art of enormous value and paintings by some of the greatest painters in history such as Zurbarán, Antonio Moro or Luca Giordano.

After an hour and a quarter, our visit will end at the exit of the Monastery.
