Curiosities and legends of Madrid
My name is Alexandra, I created HistoAventura four years ago with the idea of bringing Madrid to the people of Madrid and being able to show the city to those people who have lived here for 50 years and don't know the history of the streets they go through every day; and with that philosophy we continue. 80% of our clients are from Madrid looking for weekend plans and we go through the neighborhoods together. That makes us have a good customer loyalty but we move away from the tourist from outside, hence the need to look for platforms like this to be able to reach that tourist who comes to Madrid for a couple of days. I studied guide, information and tourist assistance; In addition to having been working for many years in the tourism sector in different parts of the world and types of business. My colleagues Christian and Marta also have the guide module and Óscar and Alba are historians, therefore we also escaped from the famous "work intrusion" that is heard so much in the free tour. HistoAventura is formed by a group of qualified guides, historians, and great lovers of the city of Madrid. Our desire to spread love for this city
In an exciting tour of surroundings to two hours and media we will visit the most emblematic sites of the city (Plaza Mayor, Almudena Cathedral ...). We will talk about the Spanish Civil War, inquisition, Moorish ruins, the Bear and the Madroño, we will meet the Robin Hood of Madrid and visit the oldest restaurant in the world. We will discover where the origin of tapas comes from, the expression “dabuti” or where the expression “get looking for Basin” originated. We will visit the most emblematic streets of the city and also the most hidden streets full of magic. Among many curiosities and anecdotes we will enter 1200 years of history. Our puzzle will be formed based on pieces that begin before the IX century, when Madrid was populated by Muslims who gave life to "Mayrit", we will talk about conquests, battles, kings ... Anecdotes, legends and curiosities that make up the Madrid we are today .
