About the tour

Madrid is an incredible city, so thriving and alive, that has so many diverse architectural styles which are closely related to its history.

On this tour I invite you to explore three moments of Madrid's history and architecture:

-The Habsburgs (16th and 17th centuries)

-The Bourbons (18th and 19th centuries)

-The 20s (Early 20th century)

We will walk through the intricate streets of The Madrid de los Austrias with its Mudejar and Herrerian architecture, which will lead us to the impressive Neoclassical style of the Bourbons, and finally we will finish at the spectacular Gran Vía that was Madrid's door to the twentieth century and it stills makes us thrill.

Response from Ignacio:

Me he comunicado con Paco para pedirle disculpas. No pude ver la reserva ya que fue hecha con muy poca antelación. Y debido al COVID, no estoy saliendo a hacer los tours a menos que las reservas se hagan con cierto tiempo. Desde ya me disculpé con Paco por el malentendido,
