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

Tour description

The origin of the Park dates back to the 18th century, when the Dukes of Osuna decided to build a residence on the outskirts of Madrid. Duchesses, Counts, Kings ... many have been those who have written the history of this park, a story that we will discover with millions of anecdotes and curiosities. We will see a bunquer of the Civil War (on the outside), a palace, a life-size maze and we will feel part of the only romantic garden in Madrid. Undoubtedly, a Capricho to discover, proof of its beauty is found in the setting for films like “Doctor Zhivago.” There are 3 gardens: English, Italian and French. In all areas there are numerous and curious corners, many of them known as Caprichos. Artists such as the composer Boccherini or the painter Goya among others will work in this suburban village; being this last great friend of the Osuna family. Goya painted in El Capricho paintings such as "El swing" or "La Pradera de San Isidro".
