Tour description

 
** LAST DAYS OF THE SEASON **


** LIMITED PLACES **


The Civil War is the closest war conflict that Spanish society has experienced and, although there is still a deep memory in the memory of many of us, it is true that the younger generations have not had, luckily, to experience that reality.

This does not mean that the past should be forgotten, and that is where MAD Experiences will take you into the harshest conflict in this country of the 20th century. XX, in one of the key battlefields of the Siege of Madrid, Moncloa and Parque del Oeste, a place that was "no man's land" and where we can still see vestiges of the horror of war.
Characters such as General Vicente Rojo, José Miaja or Buenaventura Durruti will intermingle in your lives along with Mola, Franco or José Varela.

We will come across literary figures like Hemingway , with others more anonymous but no less relevant like Kolstov or soldiers with huge strokes of luck. Machine gun nests, trenches and buildings that surround us are the remains of this tragic history that undoubtedly defined Madrid today.

MAD EXPERIENCES NEEDS YOU! GET READY!

Me pareció maravilloso el tour, Víctor explico cada punto con mucha pasión (la cual nos transmitía) y además todo desde un punto de vista objetivo (y más al tocarse este tipo de temas peliagudos). Súper recomendable tanto para amantes de la historia como para quienes quieran conocer un poco más de esta gran ciudad.

Como siempre, Víctor nos enganchó desde el minuto 1. Fue imparcial con el tema de la Guerra Civil. Pudimos imaginarnos como era el campo de batalla e incluso llegar a sentir el sufrimiento de los soldados de ambos bandos. Nos demostró que en la guerra ningún bando gana, todos pierden. Un tour,sin duda muy recomendable. Enhorabuena Víctor!!!
