About the guru Paseando Por Europa

We are a young team that left Spain in 2009 and we are in London to create this beautiful project. At the request of our "walkers" we grew up in Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Malaga, Cordoba and Budapest, teaching these cities to thousands of Spanish speakers. We are professional guides and we are madly in love with every corner of the cities we teach.

About the tour

In our Medina Azahara Free walking tour, you will understand why its founder, the Umayyad Caliph, Abderraman III, gave it the name of "The Shining City." The archaeological site was ordered to be built in 936 as a royal residence and seat of the government of Al-Andalus. Currently, it is considered world heritage and one of the most relevant and representative monuments in the history of medieval Europe.

On this guided visit to Medina Azahara we will walk through the streets that once hosted the former Arab civil and military administration. We will also travel back in time to get lost among its ruins, corridors, guard rooms and servants, mosques, towers and royal halls, the pool and the great porch, and imagine what life was like in that majestic palace.

You will see the Medina Azahara Interpretation Center as well.
