About the Guru

Not all cats live in Madrid, and not all cats in Madrid are cats. Some had to go out and carry the city inside. Others, we stay, we continue discovering it; discovering more of its secrets, more of its corners, more of its people. Some of us walk through unknown streets to know a little more about the city where we were born and the one that saw us grow up. To us, to our par... More

Not all cats live in Madrid, and not all cats in Madrid are cats. Some had to go out and carry the city inside. Others, we stay, we continue discovering it; discovering more of its secrets, more of its corners, more of its people. Some of us walk through unknown streets to know a little more about the city where we were born and the one that saw us grow up. To us, to our parents, to our grandparents ... Do you know why they call us cats? Do you know when you are a real cat? Let me take you through my favorite corners, tell you what no one knows, discover this chaotic city and give you space in places to breathe. Let me take you to taverns with history, to walls that have seen war, let me show you who walked our avenues. Because history is not always what we were taught in school. Because history often gets out of the books and comes to life in buildings, in statues, in images. Because History is not just data, names and dates. Because history can be savored, it can be laughed at, it can be told in a way that is contagious. Because no one can speak better of something than someone who is in love with it. And I love Madrid as much as I love History and its traditions. A lot of people have passed through Madrid, are you going to leave Madrid without her having passed by you?

About the Tour

Murders, mysteries, witches, ghosts ... bloody stories that will not leave you indifferent!

Madrid has something macabre that sometimes we don't know, that we can't see.
Churches with some "bad luck" to which everything happens, cemeteries hidden under our feet, prisons of yesteryear today more "cooperators", streets of executioners and so on.
Beyond the Plaza Mayor, the quintessential place for trials and convictions, there are sites that house their own ghosts and hidden stories.

Come and take a walk through the best-known streets of Madrid , but of which we sometimes ignore that, where today we drink beers and shop, others lived more tragic experiences.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: You will find me next to the CALDERÓN DE LA BARCA SCULPTURE, in the PLAZA DE SANTA ANA. I will wear a white t-shirt with the logo of Un gato en Madrid.
