Free Tour of Madrid de los Austrias
"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.
How did a simple town in Castile become "the New Babylon", the capital of one of the greatest empires in history?
For just over two hours we will visit the old town of Madrid , which reached its maximum splendor during the reign of the House of Austria in the 16th and 17th centuries.
We will know the origin of the city and its first years of life and development, and we will relive the miseries, glories and excesses of the wonderful Golden Age.
T he Plaza Mayor, Plaza de la Villa or Plaza de Oriente and the Royal Palace will mark some of the main points of our visit, in which we will try to understand many of the cultural and social phenomena that explain Madrid today.
Palace intrigues, revolutions, romances, wars, decadence and splendor... come and discover the Madrid of the Habsburgs with us.
We promise you humor, rigor... and an enormous passion for history!
*The minimum for this tour is 4 people. Normally we reach this figure, if not, we will notify you in advance.
