About the Tour

We propose to make a particular visit to the old Madrid , the Madrid of LAS Austrias , in which the protagonists will be the women , the queens who shared part of their lives with the kings of the House of Habsburg.

Our proposal aims to help expand the vision that is usually had of the historical female figures of this period.
The tour consists of a tour of old Madrid , it consists of 9 stops in emblematic places of the Los Austrias neighborhood , in each of which we will meet a queen. We will let them be the protagonists of this particular walk in which we will approach history from another angle , from the perspective of these women who are sometimes so little known.
