About the tour

The Civil War is the closest military conflict that Spanish society has lived and, although there is still a deep memory of such event in many of us, it is true that the younger generations dit not, fortunately, have to experience that reality.

This does not mean that the past should be forgotten, and that is where MAD EXPERIENCES will get you into the toughest conflict that this country lived in the XX century, in one of the key battlefields of the Site of Madrid, Moncloa and the Parque del Oeste, place that was “no man's land” and where we can still see vestiges of the horror of war.

Characters like General Vicente Rojo, José Miaja or Buenaventura Durruti will intermingle in your lives along with Mola, Franco or José Varela. We will stumble upon literary figures like Hemingway, with others more anonymous but no less relevant like Kolstov or soldiers with huge blows of luck ...

Nes of machine guns, trenches and buildings that surround us are the remains of this tragic story that undoubtedly defined Madrid today.

MAD EXPERIENCES NEEDS YOU! Get ready!

Excelente relato, en un bello espacio, de la mano de Víctor. Gran comunicador que nos ha mostrado una visión real y agradecidamente neutral de la historia durante la Guerra Civil en los frentes de Madrid.
