Travel through the unstable and inspired twentieth century with Inclán, Lorca and Benavente and walk through the neighborhood that inspired Calderón de la Barca, Lope de Vega, Góngora, Quevedo and Miguel de Cervantes and that today makes up the most colorful and bohemian neighborhood from the city of Madrid.
Learn about their day to day, their love affairs and hates and of course the works that made a whole century known as the Golden Age of Literature.

José Manuel fue un auténtica delicia como guía. Nos transmitió su pasión por Madrid y por su historia. Nos descubrió muchos secretos y nos divirtió hasta el punto de que el tiempo pasó volando. Nos explicó los lugares, anécdotas, historias como creo que le hubiese gustado que se lo contasen a él y eso marca la diferencia. También nos dio muchas recomendaciones para locales. Fue muy atento, amable y divertido. Su explicación es de las que transforma tu sensación y conocimiento respecto del barrio de las Letras. Un auténtico crack.
