"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.

About the Tour

Did you know that, for a long time, the monastery of El Escorial was thought to be a door to hell ?

Legend has it that this monument, declared a World Heritage Site, was built at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama because this place is considered a gateway to the devil's abode . Thus, the sacred place would be destined precisely to cover the entrance to the underworld ... Or was there, perhaps, a more complex hidden interest?

This and other mysteries (such as that of the black dog that tormented Felipe II's rest) will be revealed to you in our free tour , which will start in the Plaza de la Constitución and will have a circular route through the darker side of the town.

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

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: The guide will be waiting in the plaza with a blue umbrella from Todo Tours.

Como no es la primera vez que lo uso, ya habréis adivinado que salí contento unas veces y otras no tanto, pero yo lo recomiendo si no conocéis la ciudad en la que se ofertan

Muchas gracias Juan, aunque entendemos por tus palabras que lo que valoras es los free tours en general y no nuestro Free Tour de los Misterios y Leyendas de El Escorial
