About the tour

Come with us and explore one of the neighborhoods with has homed the most artistic and literary geniuses in world history on our Free Tour of Madrid’s Art’s Quarter. A neighborhood in which since the distant 16th century all the great names of Spanish literature have lived, leaving their mark in some way or another.

Laugh at the unbelievable anecdotes of literature’s most famous antagonisms: The great ego battle between the two greatest poets of the Spanish Baroque, Quevedo and Góngora, who didn’t just write pungent, witty, hurtful sonnets about each other, but also went to great lengths to make each other’s life impossible.

You will discover a neighborhood which has become a mandatory pilgrimage to all those who write and love Spanish literature; a place which has been called home by so many of the greatest writers of the Spanish language, one which is so widely spoken throughout the world. A neighborhood which nowadays has become one of the most culturally proactive areas in Europe - get lost amongst theatres, cafes, musical bars, and the houses of the greatest writers from yesterday, today and tomorrow.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
