Overview

Discover the unknown mysteries that lurk around every corner in the beautiful Spanish capital. Wander along the sunny streets to find one of the oldest churches in Madrid, the Iglesia San Ginés, and learn all about the Spanish Inquisition and the terrible fates that awaited the city’s law-breakers at Plaza Mayor. Your expert guide will lead you through the legends and untold stories that show you the darkest depths of history, as you locate Santa Cruz Palace, previously Madrid’s oldest prison. A city full of surprises, uncover the untold tales of this haunting historical past.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Madrid’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Madrid. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Madrid of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Madrid's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.

The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour. Also, remember to keep an eye on the time difference when choosing a time for your private virtual experience, as all times stated are in Madrid time!
