What you'll do

There's more to see in Madrid than the Prado Museum and Palacio Real. We will discover some great plazas and hidden jewels of the old city, from the 10th century up to the present. Our starting point will be the Arabic walls near Almudena cathedral. From there we will walk a short path full of views and surprises, we will stop for some tapas and will end at the Plaza de la Villa, near Calle Mayor. You will experience the area called "Madrid de los Austrias" as a resident, and will understand why we like so much living here!

Ignacio

Spanish architect and storyteller, I love presenting my city to others. History, places, people: there's nothing like a good tale to catch the soul of a city. My wife and I don't like the standard tours: I have instead organized a real experience, fun and colored with facts and figures. After the walk, you will understand Madrid!

What's included

Drinks
A drink with a tapa At the middle of the walk. You can taste a coffee or tea if you prefer it.
