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!

Tour description

We want to discover two of the most traditional and multicultural neighborhoods in Madrid, and take you into its narrow streets still wrapped in that mysterious halo of its medieval origin. Located in the heart of Madrid, Lavapiés and La Latina maintain their irregular layout of homes built at different heights and around a central patio: the corralas (a popular building model in the capital between the 17th and 19th centuries). Its ancient commercial tradition gives its name to many of its streets and squares, such as Plaza de la Cebada, Plaza de los Carros or Plaza de la Paja. But, without a doubt, the best representation of this ancient tradition is found in the Rastro: the most famous open-air market in Madrid. These two neighborhoods, which represent the best example of traditional tradition, have become the meeting point of very different cultures. In them, the popular legacy of Madrid coexists in perfect balance with the customs and traditions contributed by a well-established immigrant population, arriving from different origins. You will discover a Madrid full of life. El Rastro, its tapas, the Paloma festival, Las Vistillas... What are you waiting for? Sign up now!

Only groups of up to 6 people are allowed in this activity. If you are 7 or more people, you will be asked to pay per person in advance to join the tour.
