Re: Spanish royal burials
Nothing is known about JC&S’s burial place. The most accepted place is El Escorial. The pantheon is full, but there have been some proposals to extend it. Queen Sofia was asked about it in her memoirs ans she said she did not care. Being buried at Zarzuela’s gardens would be ok, like Tatoi.
Anyway, their remains wil stay for 30 or 40 years at the pudridero. Time enough to find a solution.
Forgive me for “hijacking” this post, but do we know where Juan Carlos and Sofía will be buried? And extending that further, Felipe VI and Letizia, etc.? There are still spaces in the Pantheon of the Infantes at El Escorial, however would Monarchs be buried there; will they rest in the pudridero if that’s not needed for a burial?
Just curious because we’ve seen in the Netherlands the crypt in Delft extended for future burials, for example, but I’ve not heard anything about Spain.
