In addition a monthly Sunday evening sung Eucharist service is held at the “La Chimenea Chapel” at El Escorial.
Please let us know if you want to receive updates on El Escorial services by e-mailing us on email@example.com
This Service is held in the “Capilla de La Chimenea” of the Monasterio del Prestado, right in the centre of the El Escorial pueblo and only a couple of minutes away from the Renfe main line station with its hourly connection to and from the centre of Madrid.
This Capilla, restored by the Fliedner foundation, is the place starting in 1607 where glass was fired for the windows needed for the construction of the Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial (a UNESCO heritage site).
The evocative burnt wall behind what is now used as the altar sets the scene for a memorable opportunity to worship.
After the service, refreshments and tapitas are offered in the delightful garden or, in case of unusually poor weather, in the refectory in the main seminary.
For those who want to tarry a little longer there are two excellent restaurants next to the station: “La Parada y Fonda” and “Algora”.
Don’t forget though if you are going back to town by train the last one leaves at 22:13!
To get to the chapel, enter the grounds by the black double gates half way along in Calle Alfolí
