The visit was good ... The correct guide ...

The visit was fine .. I lacked curious anecdotes ... The helmets were not heard well ... As a point I will say that I would recommend at a general level that some mirrors be installed on top of the mausoleums of the Catholic kings to be able to see them from above as they are details are not appreciated

The tour was wonderful. Cynthia is a great guide. Kept us, including our 7-years old boy fully engaged.
