Discover The Madrid of the Muses , a tour full of art and ingenuity in which you will walk 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 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.
