"Choose a job that you like and you will not have to work a day of your life" Confucius. Madrilenian by birth and traveler by vocation. My passion is traveling and this has also led me to live in Munich for a few years, which has allowed me to grow in many ways. It was in this city, where by chance I started working as a tour guide, a profession that allows me to combine two fields that I am passionate about, tourism and communication. I have always been linked to the world of tourism, which has allowed me to accumulate experience in different sectors and jobs. Ambitious in character, always looking for new projects to go a little further and constantly reinvent myself. This led me in 2019 to create my own tour company in Madrid and Munich called Todo Tours. With my feet on the ground and my eyes on a plane on my way to a new destination, I am always ready to undertake a new project, discover something new and learn as much as possible.

Tour description

What makes the Parque del Capricho unique?

Built between the 18th and 19th centuries, this park was the canvas on which the wealthy Duchess of Osuna painted all the whims that occurred to her, giving the city one of the most beautiful places that can be visited.

A palace for bees , a temple dedicated to the God of wine , a house for an old woman, a hermitage for a hermit, a castle for a soldier ... El Capricho is a fairy tale full of esoteric and Masonic symbols, the result of the relationship that the Duchess had with the occult.

During our visit we will unveil many of the innumerable secrets that the park houses , in an exciting story through which figures such as Francisco de Goya , the intimate enemies Antonio de Orleans and Enrique de Borbón (who challenged each other to a tragic duel for the Throne of Spain) or General Miaja , responsible for the Defense of Madrid during the Spanish Civil War and who ordered the construction of the surprising bunker that we will know from the surface.

Do not miss the opportunity to discover the most exquisite whim of Madrid!
We wait for you!

* The minimum for this tour is 4 people, normally we reach this figure, otherwise we would notify you in advance.
