What you'll do
We'll start with a walk in the biggest park in town, Casa de Campo, a battlefield and a frontline during the civil war. Starting from a 1933 fountain, we will walk up to one of the bunkers where soldiers used to hide weapons, ammunitions, medicines etc and where they probably also hide themselves during days. They had a wide open view of the city from there, key to locate the enemy. We will have a look at artifacts found in the trenches in recent times. We'll then head to the very centre of the city, to Puerta del Sol, to talk about historic buildings and watch ancient photo of the bombings. This tour will take you to the outskirts of the city and also returns you to its centre, so you get both the larger perspective and the point of view from right inside the urban core.
History has always been a great passion, and the spanish civil war is a very touching issue for me. I've been living in Madrid during ten years, and before that I took a degree in Spanish Literature and History. Casa de Campo is one of my favorite places, so I am happy to share my passions with people from all over the world. I love to travel, alone and with friends, and I try to make people feel confortable especially if it's their first time in town.
