Edinburgh Mysteries, Ghosts and Witch Burning Free Tour (in Spanish)
Do you want to do the best Tours in Scotland? Well this is your place. After several years working in the tourism sector for leading companies in different locations in the UK, I decided to embark on this adventure and create “We are Scotland”, from where we do walking tours of Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow. This project was born from work, humility and experience in order to make people who visit Scotland feel part of its history and its legends, together with a team of experienced guides passionate about history that will make you want to return. to this wonderful country.
Learn about the alleys where people lived in the 17th century in the city of Edinburgh, but especially how they died during the Black Death, and the doctors who tried to cure it with bird masks.
We tell you the mysteries of the South Bridge , where whiskey was illegally distilled, but above all , corpses were hidden . Of corpses we will speak, but of the black market of corpses of the 19th century and serial killers , William Burke and William Hare. We will visit Old Calton Cemetery and Canongate .
We will go up to Calton Hill , where I will tell you about something that I am passionate about: the burning of witches and warlocks , and we will see if any of those who do this tour have ended up in those bonfires. In Calton Hill, in addition, we have the observatory, the monument of Nelson and the national monument of Scotland , they are symbols of the city, but here they are called the shames of Edinburgh.
We will walk through a passage, Jacob's Ladder, which was used as a secret passage during the black market of corpses.
All this mystery and mysticism that has surrounded Edinburgh for decades has attracted hundreds of tourists to the city, wanting to know what happened in these centuries. Are you going to miss it?
