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

Legends of the city, curiosities that will not leave you indifferent and unknown characters that will leave you with your mouth open.

Many times we go through the places as if we were suitcases without knowing anything and we do not look up, we do not look at the one next to us.
Have you noticed those streets that seem flat but are not so flat?
Have you noticed the epic stories that our streets tell? Other times we cannot look under our feet, but if we could, we would see that the capital's skyscrapers fit inside another building.
And if we went into a restaurant, we would see the walls of this city. If we look closely, we could also see that not only have royal people lived in the Royal Palace, and that it is possible that the expression "brightness by their absence" was born very close to the Plaza de Oriente.

Do we look together at the SECRETS that Madrid keeps?

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: You will find me at the DOOR OF THE BASILICA. I will wear a white t-shirt with the logo of A cat in Madrid

Fue una visita genial! Increíbles dos horas y media paseando y escuchando a la historia de Madrid meno típica. Cada metro había algo que la guía sabia y podea contarme. Increíble!
