About the guru Madrizarte (Nelida)

Madrizarte arises with the desire to offer to anyone who lives or visits Madrid, a different way of knowing the city in which they feel the protagonist of the story that we will tell, and not just a mere spectator of it. We collaborate with guides, actors, historians and teachers to prepare our routes and make them genuine, fun and educational.

About the tour

In madrizarte we believe that Madrid would not be Madrid if Carlos III had not reigned in the capital. So, passionate about the figure of this monarch and the Madrid that he had to reign, we want to invite you to discover the Age of Enlightenment and Enlightenment so that you can meet Carlos III, and witness the transformation that the city suffered During his reign. Do you feel like traveling to the 18th century? In the eighteenth century the Prado Viejo was a dirty, muddy and uneven terrain that Carlos III transformed into one of the most beautiful areas of the city. Who was La caramba, why Neptune, Cibeles and Apollo are the protagonists of the fountains that adorn this walk, or why if the subway had existed at the time of Carlos III the “Station of art” would have been called “Station of the science ”... These are some of the secrets that you will learn from the hand of the Marquise de Madrizarte, lady coming from the eighteenth century for the occasion. Do you want to discover them?
