This is a walking tour through the treasures of beautiful city of Madrid: its origins, legends and history. Together we will walk through the historical center of the city and will learn what Madrid means and is – the capital of Spain, although sometimes one of overlooked cities that has many things to offer and to say to people.

During the walk we’ll have a chance to try some “barquillo”, or local liquor of Madroño, even (and why not!) taste some “callos a la Madrileña” or “cocido” served in the authentic atmosphere. Madrid is a city that has been the hometown to a variety of cultures, it’s astonishingly welcoming, warm and unique, and we’ll be happy to share it with you!

There will be an opportunity to access some of the monuments and historical sites during the tour. Just bear in mind that the visits to these sights will have to be short and the entrance is not included in the price of the tour.

Extra cash estimate: 20 euros – This estimation is for a traveler that wants to visit some of the historical sights on the tour, like San Francisco el Grande, entrance fee will be 3 euros (not allways)

We will walk through the historic center from your meeting point at Plaza de España, through sights such as Parque de las Vistillas, San Francisco el Grande and Puerta de Toledo.

You will visit Plaza Mayor and walk down the Gran Via, Madrid’s showcase shopping district and a testament to early 20th-Century Art Deco architecture. You will take in the Puerta del Sol, where Madrileños celebrate New Year’s Eve by eating a grape on the toll of each bell welcoming in the New Year.

During the walk you will have the chance to try some “barquillo,” the local liquor of Madroño, and to taste some “Callos a la Madrileña” or “Cocido,” served in an authentic atmosphere.

Madrid has been the hometown to many different cultures, and you will get to explore its intimate neighborhoods, walking along one of the oldest streets in the city to La Latina.

The route you follow takes you through the old city, from the Madrid of the Austrias to the first Muslim area, which formed the origins of the city. It includes an overview of the most important sights, talking about its history and legends as you pass sites such as the magnificent royal Plaza de Oriente, and pop in to small taverns to try traditional vermouth with the locals.

But, perhaps most importantly, you will break for the day and enjoy a typical Spanish set-menu lunch, lingering for a couple of hours, breaking bread, drinking wine and putting the world to rights as you feast on simple yet utterly delicious food.
