Essential Madrid Free Tour

The free Bourbon tours in Madrid are an excellent way to learn about the history of Spain.
The tours are guided by professional interpreters and last approximately one to two hours. Visitors will be able to walk around some of Madrid's most important sites. You will also have time to admire the architecture, get an introduction on how to read Spanish (in the case of foreign tourists) and learn more about the lives of these members of the royal family during their time in Madrid. And all this thanks to the Free Tours of the Bourbons in Madrid that we offer here at Guruwalk.
Charles III, Bourbon, was the monarch who imposed classicism as an artistic trend to leave behind the sober style that characterised the reign of the Habsburgs.
The influence of the French Revolution was most evident in Charles III's decision to convert Madrid to the classicist style. His policies were in line with the popular political ideology of the time, which emphasised conservatism and a return to traditional values.
One of the greatest architectural exponents of this change is Madrid's Paseo del Prado, which includes a series of private palaces belonging to wealthy families, many of them devoted to science and art, such as the Prado Museum.
Later Ferdinand VII continued to change Madrid in the style of the Bourbons, with landmarks of the time such as La Puerta de Alcalá, which is one of Madrid's most emblematic landmarks. It was built in 1778, is located in the centre of Madrid and is a symbol of the city, originally designed to provide a monumental entrance to the city.
The Puerta de Alcalá has two levels with a large central arch at the top, which is flanked by smaller arches on either side. There are four statues adorning the upper level: two depict Adam and Eve, while two represent Spain's King Ferdinand VII and his wife.
As you can see, the area of Madrid promoted by the reign of the Bourbons over several generations is really localised in very specific areas of Madrid and boasts renowned architectural works of great significance. In order not to miss technical details or the history of them, there is nothing better than the Free Tours of the Bourbons in Madrid that we offer you in Guruwalk.
