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're worried you're spending this Valentine's alone. For this reason, we have prepared a guided tour designed especially for single men and women in Madrid.

Singles you are all welcome!

Learn, along with a local heritage expert guide, the history of the romantic Quinta de los Molinos public park, an old recreational estate owned by the Count of Torre Arias, which passed into the hands of the famous architect and councilor Cort Botín, who gave it transformed into the wonder that we can contemplate today.

Immerse yourself with us in a true Mediterranean garden and learn about the species that grow in it. If you come between the end of January and the beginning of April, you will be amazed by the forest of almond trees in bloom. It's quite a show!

Did you know that the scientific name of almond trees is Prunus dulcis and that their flowers appear on the branches even before their leaves? The current term comes from the Latin amygdala and this, possibly, from the Greek ἀμυγδάλη In many cultures of the past, the almond tree is considered a divine tree.

During the tour we will be able to admire the pond in the park, the Casa del Reloj or the Casa-Palacio , and, of course, the mills that give the Quinta its name.

In addition, to get into the atmosphere we will know the historical origin of Valentine's Day. Did you know that, according to tradition, part of his relics are kept in a church in Madrid? You cannot stop visiting it on these dates!

The tour will end in front of the Casa-Palacio de la Quinta 90 minutes after its start. And who knows? You may have met someone special along the itinerary…

Of course, this guided tour is also designed for couples or families, and you can also come with your pet!

Come have a fun time with us!

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.
