About the Tour

Discover The Madrid of the Muses, a tour full of art and ingenuity in which you will stroll through the Madrid that inspired and saw the poets and writers of the most glorious Century of Our Literature grow. Travel through the unstable and full of 20th century inspiration with Inclán, Lorca and Benavente and stroll through the neighborhood that inspired Calderón de la Barca, Lope de Vega, Góngora, Quevedo and Miguel de Cervantes and today makes up the most colorful and bohemian neighborhood from the city of Madrid. Know his day to day, his love affairs and hatreds and of course the works that made a whole century known as the Golden Age of Literature. The Spanish Theater, the Houses of Lope de Vega and Cervantes, the disputes between Quevedo and Góngora await us to discover a Madrid full of Art, Poetry and Inspiration. Here we leave you a video about the Tour to open your mouth. We hope you like it;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2Qp3pIPxPU

Tour muy entretenido, dinámico y lleno de contenido, que se ha hecho divertido Gracias al guía Ignacio transmitiendo sus conocimientos y “chascarrillos” sobre los protagonistas del Siglo de Oro

Carmen Ortiz about 6 hours

Fue estupendo, en especial por el Guía, José Manuel. Amable, simpático, culto, entretenido. A pesar de first casi 3 horas se hizo corto!! Estupendo!!

Olga celorio 1 day

El tour por el barrio de las letras fue maravilloso y revelador. A pesar de ser madrileña y vivir en Madrid toda la vida, descubrí historias y rincones que no conocía gracias a "Mel"

Carolinas Gonzalez about 1 hour

Mel es un fantástico guía. Nunca me ha gustado la historia de la literatura, pero con su pasión ha conseguido que hasta me den ganas de leer a Valle Inclán! Explica con mucha pasión y al final del tour sientes que conoces a Quevedo, Lope, Cervantes, Góngora y Calderon de la Barca de toda la vida. Repetiremos un tour con Mel sin duda!

Mayte Garbayo about 20 hours
