Tour description

A route that will take you to Madrid in the 80s , a Madrid immersed in a cultural movement that took the name of the Movida Madrileña. You will visit legendary bars and discos of that decade and discover various anecdotes and stories through the most central streets of the city. You will also meet leading figures who gave the movement its identity ... All this seasoned with the odd song to put ourselves in the shoes of all the locals from Madrid who experienced La Movida in the first person.

We will leave from the Plaza Mayor and go to Puerta del Sol, to go up Calle Montera to Calle Jardines, where we will discover a room that was a meeting point for thousands of people. We will walk through a section of Gran Vía until we reach Plaza del Callao and we will direct our steps to Calle de Trujillos, where we will set our sights on the famous Calle del Arenal and its renowned Joy Eslava.

Un poco decepcionante. Esperábamos visitar y aprender sobre el movimiento de la movida y apenas se mencionó nada concreto sobre ello ni se visitan lugares emblemáticos

Tú super agradable, donde uno aprende bastante sobre la cultura de esa época, volví con una lista de pelis y sobretodo musicas para escuchar! El guía era super majo y con mucha energía, era guay. Sólo me faltó conocer a más sitios, al final era sobretodo el discurso que era interesante, pero faltaba ver más sitios de la movida madrileña
