Free tour The Inquisition in Madrid
Arkeo Tour was born from an idea of a group of youngs from Andalusia and Madrid who loved its History, culture and heritage. Our team is made up of great professionals with extensive experience in managing of tourist groups and cultural visits in different parts of Spain. Most of us have trained on the street, collaborating in different archaeological sites, art galleries and museums. We consider that our land has great heritage and cultural potential that must be valued for both residents and tourists. We do not believe that transmitting our history is bored. We want you to enjoy it. May you live the experience. And that you impregnate yourself with the vestiges of our past. Join this adventure with us!
The Court of the Holy Office is considered an institution that is as reviled today as it was feared in its day. Hundreds of people were justly or unjustly accused of heresy and punished in the cruelest ways possible. In Madrid, the Inquisition had a much later implantation than in other parts of Spain, but due to its role as the capital of the kingdom it had a great presence and activity. Do you want to know how the process was carried out, from the moment a prisoner was denounced until he was tried and executed? During this visit our guides will reveal the dark secrets of the inquisitors in Madrid. The city still preserves numerous vestiges related to the autos-da-fe, such as streets, squares, churches, convents, monasteries and even an old palace. If you are a lover of hidden stories and mystery, this is your route. But, come prepared, what we will tell you will chill your blood.
Only groups of up to 6 people are allowed in this activity. If you are 7 or more people, you will be asked for a payment per person in advance to join the visit.
