About the tour

The Tribunal of the Holy Office is considered an institution as reviled today as it was feared in its day. Hundreds of people were justly or unfairly accused of heresy and punished in the most cruel ways possible. In Madrid, the Inquisition had a much later establishment than in other parts of Spain, but due to its role as capital of the kingdom it had a great presence and activity. Do you want to know how the process was carried out, from when an inmate was denounced until he was tried and executed? During this visit our guides will discover the dark secrets of the inquisitors in Madrid. The city still preserves today numerous vestiges related to the autos de 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 freeze your blood.
