MEDIEVAL Madrid: The Old Town
We are a group of tourist guides, accredited in Venice and Madrid, with extensive experience in the city, both historically and culturally, as well as in leisure and gastronomy. We will be delighted if you visit Venice or Madrid with us.
On this tour we are going to visit the oldest, and also unknown, part of Madrid. A city whose oldest remains date from pre-Roman times (8th-2nd centuries BC) to gain a certain political and military importance under the power of Al-Andalus (860 AD) thanks to Emir Muhammad I and to be Christianized in 1085 by the King Alfonso VI to become part of the Kingdom of León and later Castile. On this tour, therefore, we can distinguish very well the enormous cultural, artistic and architectural differences between Moors and Christians. We are going to delve into the birth of Madrid and what this city was like before it was converted into the Capital of Spain (1561) by Felipe II , going through its narrow and steep streets and the vestiges that still persist from medieval times. On this tour we will be accompanied by the memory of illustrious characters such as Isabella I of Castile (the Catholic), El Cid Campeador , the French King Francisco I, Alfonso X "El Sabio" or San Isidro himself, among others. There will be no shortage of cultural and gastronomic recommendations.
The places that we are going to visit in this tour are the following:
- PLAZA DE ORIENTE AND ROYAL PALACE
- CHURCH OF SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS SERVITAS
- TOWN SQUARE. OLD TOWN HALL. PALACE OF THE LUJANES.
- HOUSES TO "LA MALICE"
- GREEN CROSS SQUARE
