Hi everybody! I am Rubén, guru from Madrid ;), I am 23 years old, I like to be named Rubens, I consider myself a genuine "cat"(autochthonous person from Madrid). I am a funny guy, I consider myself close to people and I love to exchange opinions with travelers, since they can bring you experiences without having traveled outside of Madrid. I have traveled in Europe and that has helped me a little to love this work, because in every corner there is always a story to tell and I think Madrid is a perfect city to teach all kinds of tours. It is a city full of life where everyone feels at home, for me is the best city in Spain and one of the best in the world. I have experience as a local guide, but I have a lot of passion about my work and I like to teach and explain events, for me it is the ideal job. That's why I think being able to work in my own city of something I like as a local guide is a privilege.

About the Tour





It is a tour to learn about the history of the civil war here in Madrid ; Along the route, we will rebuild the Madrid of 1936 through photographs, we will get into the shoes of the Madrid people of the time and we will discover how the day-to-day life of the city was lived during the hard years of hunger and uncertainty of the Civil War. It is a very enjoyable visit in which, with good visual material, people will be able to get a precise idea of how those bloody years were lived. We will start the tour in Moncloa and we will go down Pintor Rosales street to comment on how the fronts and the battle were in CIU, we will also go to Debod and near the Liria Palace to see the old headquarters of the military barracks of the Republic and we will finish in Plaza de España.

It is advisable to wear comfortable shoes for walking (since part of the route is through the Parque del Oeste) and a bottle of water.

This tour ends its tour in Plaza de España.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: I will be at the exit of the Moncloa interchange on Paseo de Moret.

EL TOUR ESTUVO MUY BUENO.

Romain 08/26/2021

Awesome walking tour with Rubén. He gave us quality informations about this important part of recent Spain's history. Due to the fact that there are little remains of the war in Madrid, there is little to see, but just for Rúben's stories and informations on the subject, the tour is worth. Would recommand to everyone who when to do activities outside the touristic part of the city.
